geez, that isn't comforting...
i actually told 2 of my friends about what is happening and both strongly suggested that i get a second or third opinion about what's going on. one told me a friend of his had something similar and was told by a doctor she had herpes and it actually turned out to be something with her kidney stones or something...
i didn't really understand. but he said i should get a second opinion when i was describing to him what was going on and how painful it still is.
after i initially posted this (like 3am Friday)i actually ended up going to the emergency room because i didn't know what else to do to relieve some of the pain to be able to pee. i had tried to go and just ended up bawling and crying hysterically and my sister made me call an ambulance (she knows i have an unusually high tolerance for pain and to see me like that scared the crap out of her) because i had to be for about 4 hours...
anyway, when i got to the hospital after telling them what was going on the doctor said he didn't need to see me. they just gave me a vicodin and wrote me 2 perscriptions. one for Zovirax cream and another for Vicoprofen (which i think is supposed to be like Vicodin?) I still have yet to fill either prescritption because:
1. the Vicodin the gave me didn't really help with the pain down there. it still hurt just as much as before only after taking the Vicodin i was really very indifferent to the pain until i had to move or something... lol
like it basically made me very calm and seemed like it affected everywhere BUT down there.
2. i don't like to take any kind of drug unless its absolutely necessary and i know it will work
3. i am uninsured and have no idea how much it will cost to fill them
in addition to that, i still had to pee before i left the hospital so they gave me "Lidocaine Viscous" which is an oral antistetic but the woman that gave it to me told me it would be ok to use down there because it would numb it so i could pee.
BOY OH BOY DID IT WORK WONDERS!!!!
she gave me 2 packets of that stuff to take home and use and it has been PHENOMENAL in helping me when i have to pee.
my question is, is that stuff really ok to be using down there like that? and if so, is it available over the counter or is something similar to it available over the counter?
