I have had a problem with stints since b4 my pregnancy and now during cause the tube of my kidney to bladder keeps closing... It's on my left kidney and been giving me many complications and ive been going through the worse experiences.. First they would give me anesthesia and put me to sleep and i woke up with a tube in my throat and couldnt breath was the worse.. Now that I am 25 weeks pregnant I had surgery 9 days ago and they gave me a spinal tap that they give to women when they get a c section.. It was horrible I got nauseous and just broke out in sweat dry heaving.. A day after I got a bad headache that went from my head to the back of my head down my spine, plus the kidney pain on top of that..! That lasted 4 days I was in excruciating pain couldn't eat or anything hardly could walk to the bathroom I felt as if I were dying.. Worse pain ever.. Called the hospital and they said I could have got a spinal leakage and said I could go in for a blood patch to where they stick a needle twice as big then an epidural in ur back with ur blood I said forget that!! So I slept it off... They wanted me to go in four more times for the same procedure the stent till I have the baby.. But I can't handle that it's just to much for my body..! So I went to get a second opinion from a specialist Uroligist and there going to put a medal stent due to how high risk I've been with getting infections after infection.. So they said hopefully I can keep this through my whole pregnancy till I have the baby.. But my question to u all is I don't want to get the spinal tap at all cuz it's messed my back up horribly is there anything else they can give me and that I can request..? Please help..!! I've been through so much and my body can't handle it I've been losing weight no appetite due to how much pain I'm in.. I didn't have this problem with my son... Any help would be much appreciated thank you..
