Tomorrow is the pre-op testing for my kidney surgery. Yes. I'm having kidney surgery. Actually, TWO kidney surgeries, a couple of weeks apart.
Apparently, I make kidney stones like it's my job and I've got a big one that needs some intervention before it decides it's going out on it's own. So in another week, I'll be having day surgery and then taking a couple of days to recover. Then, I'll have the same surgery a couple of weeks later to make sure they got all of the pieces of the super-stone that they're breaking up. And THEN I'll have to see a renal specialist to find out why I'm making stones. All of this sounds really fun and all, but I'd rather not be doing it. At all. I wasn't nervous til today, and will likely be MORE nervous this time tomorrow!
Though, I must admit....the prospect of a couple of days off of work, despite the reasons, sounds pretty sweet. As long as I'm not feeling crappy and in pain.
And to settle the age-old debate of which is more painful: Giving Birth or Kidney Stones? The stones win, hands down.
