Ok, this might sound odd so bare with me. I'm not even quite sure how to ask this but here it goes. As you may or may not know I had a bad kidney infection about a month ago. I am getting my PICC line out at the end of the week. I no longer have a constatnt pain in my flank area which is wonderful. However, I do still have sharp stabbing shooting pains in my left flank area. I asked the nurse that comes to help with the PICC about them and she said not to worry that it was probably just the infection clearing. I was like, ok. Since I had no idea. Her answer seemed appropriate to me. However, now I am not so sure, the pains have now been there for almost a week. If they are removing the PICC the infection should be gone right?
So here's my question. Is my pain nothing to worry about? possibly a kidney stone(s), one of my friends even mentioned appendix, or could it be another type of infection?
Last thing, I promise. Does anyone know of a good urologist in the chicago area? Apparently mine is crap. Thanks so much.
