As many of you know, I just had a bout with kidney stones. I passed both stones this weekend, without needing any surgery or lithotripsy. YAAAAAAAYY!!! Right? Right! Here's my problem. My feet and ankles are so swollen I cannot put my shoes on. My feet are not quite double their normal size (looks GROSS!) and it really, really hurts. I have an appointment with my PCP in the morning, because my feet have been like this since Friday. I called Monday about it, and by the time anyone got back to me, I had to make the appointment for tomorrow, to make sure I was home when the kids got in from school. Sucks for air when you are incapable of driving yourself around. Grrrr... Another good reason to get to a specialist in OID as soon as possible when diagnosed with any form of Uveitis. I used to be able to drive with the most mediocre of them... I miss cars... Oh well.
I don't have flank pain anymore, and everything else seems fine. Obviously, it isn't fine, or I'd be able to get my boots on. Or at least a pair of sneakers. Instead, I'm stuck with a pair of ballerina-type house shoes, and the elastic around the top digs into me. I am considering going barefooted to the Doc's, but I don't think they let you in anywhere but the ER when you're barefoot... This is really strange, even for me. Has anyone else ever had this problem???
