Brittani1989's Journal, 02 February 2013

Was rushed to the ER yesterday morning for being in excruciating pain in my lower back area. Turns out I was passing multiple kidney stones... I have never had this happen so I literally thought I was dying. They put an IV in me and gave me two bags of fluids one right after the other and enough medication to knock out a horse. So this morning I decided to check and see weight wise where I was at... well I think the fluid made me gain 2 pounds... I'm not going to try and worry about it since I'm still in a whole lot of pain and the last thing on my mind is food.
159.0 lb Lost so far: 12.0 lb.    Still to go: 49.0 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

I would double check with your doctor about high protein diet and kidney stones. There have been some links but I don't know if there is conclusive evidence. Better to be sure than have to suffer in pain.

They did give me something to go home with, to me it's not enough. To say this is painful is an understatement. They based the problem off of my move from CA to TX and the tap water. They are sending me to a Urologist for a better analysis. I just shouldn't even step on the scale until I am better since my body has been in so much trauma the past couple of days everything is out of wack.
