I have to say that this is the toughest week I have ever had to face since losing weight. I almost feel like it is one health test after another. I felt sudden pain in my lower back and abdomen that can only be described as what I would imagine a knife being thrust into my side would feel like.
What freaked me out even more was that there was blood present in my urine. A sample was sent off to a lab and I had a CT Scan that confirmed that I had kidney stones. Sunday night, I thought I was going to die from the pain I was experiencing.
I pushed through the pain and worked on Monday at Ute Crossfit and Tuesday at East Canyon State Park, and I even coached a basketball game through the pain. Tuesday night I had an attack that immobilized me, and I had to call in Wednesday.
I passed one stone and am waiting to pass the second. The doctor laughed when I asked for an epidural, ha ha ha.
Needless to say, I haven’t been able to get to the gym but I haven’t gained any weight either–so all is good. I am jonesin to get back and work out. Thank you for all the support!
