My left kidney is aching pretty bad. The uranium poisoning episode in May produced massive pain and an insane amount of proteinuria. In 2008 I think, I had a series of kidney stones pass (two weeks). One of them had a jagged edge (I saw it), and I got an infection. My doctor said if I didn’t immediately go on cipro, I would be dead in two days. So my kidneys were already messed up, and then I got exposed to uranium, which primarily damages the kidneys.
I don’t know if this is a stone, or if it is inflammation. I got the flu a couple months ago, and the kidney pain kept me up a couple of nights. So I now have autoimmune kidney disease.
Vgirl is picking me up some hydrangea. Hopefully this will help.
There are anecdotes about home remedies on the web… here is one of them:
This is what worked for me. In a blender mix aprox. 10 oz of cooked canned asparagus, 4 oz of lemon juice and 4 oz of olive oil, add distilled water until it is drinkable. Drink all of this with 2 ibuprofen and a massive amount of distilled water (2 liters) every four hours. It tastes horrible but it is better than staying up all night crying and bargaining with God. My experience with this was after about three hours the pain stopped and after the fourth glass I passed some nasty sludge and small gravel and the stone was gone. I’ve suffered stones for six years, hospitallized once (the first big one) and pass about two per year, the largest was 11mm and the average 6mm. The above mixture has worked as stated on my last two stones. I should note that this is for idiots like me without insurance, otherwise I strongly recommend going to the doctor. Good luck.
I am an idiot without insurance too, and I can’t take ibuprofen, taking one Advil makes me bleed for 3 days. Hopefully the hydrangea will work.
