I have been hospitalised for a week due to pains in my right and had an ultrasound which confirmed both my kidneys have swelled 'hydronephesis', I have been very nausious too and have a lot of medication, oral morphine, cyclzine by injection, codine, parcetomal (useless).
I have seen a nephrologist (specilaist in kidneys) who has advised me to have an operation on my kidneys, which involves putting a camera through my uretha upto my kidney to see if there is any stones if so remove them if not place a stent between kidney and bladder. My operation is scheduled for tuesday.. however am not sure this is the best route to go down due to being put to sleep by anaesthetic and the use of xray equipment an the op as a whole.
Ive done some vague research and seen alot of people still had probs with the stents etc. and as am only 24 weeks i feel its too risky for my baby. However the docs have advised me if i dont the pain may become worse and i may develop an infection. I am now managing my pain without morphine and just on codine. The only implication i can find to developing and infection would be an early delivery which im thinking is best to chance rather than having an anaesthetic/xray and risking losing or deforming my baby.
Anyone else been in a similar situation or can offer any advice or expertise would be much appreciated?
