175-2020 – Kidney Stones

Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about my kidney stones who woke me up at 4 am today and made me check into the hospital.

checked into the Basildon Hospital with Kidney stones

After 3 hours of continuous pain, the stones finally came out and the pain suddenly stopped. The IV paracetamol they gave me had little or no effect in taking away the pain.

To make sure, the doctor send me to do an MRI scan and confirmed the stones are out. At 8:40 am they sent me home, but before that the nurse removed my IV from my right arm and gave me a prescription of Co-Aamoxiclav 500mg/125mg to avoid infection.

Apparently, I should start drinking a lot of Cranberry Juice.
