More Kidney Stone Info

by on December 22, 2009

Our Urologist got the kidney stone analysis back and they aren’t caused by Satomi’s chemo.  The stones are caused by the waste products generated by a bacteria living in her kidneys.  The remedy is a low-dose of antibiotics for the next few months.  At the end of this period, there is a possibility that the stones will dissolve on their own.

In the mean time, the old criteria still applies.  If she suffers from intense nausea or an unexplained temperature of >101.5°F, we are to go to the ER.  Otherwise, we can focus on the balance of Satomi’s treatments and just move on.
