When was the last time YOU were in the ER as a patient. Not as a mother or a gf/wife/fiancee. I was there almost two months ago when I had a kidney infection and a kidney stone! Prior to that it was six month ago when I broke my leg.
Does your ER have a sympathetic nursing staff or are they total jerks??
Same reason as you last February. I had kidney stones and kidney infection about a month ago too...my dr couldnt get me an appt for another week..thought I was going to have to go to the er then but I went to Urgent Care.
Last time I was in the ER was when I had a kidney stone when I was pregnant. I was 20 weeks, and went to the L&D, and they did an ultra sound and saw that it was just a kidney stone, and then sent me to the ER.
A few months back when we needed to double check if I had fractured my knee/shin when I had fallen. Luckily, nothing was broken. The nurses were nice, so were the X-Ray people (even though the guy felt bad every time he had to move my leg to get better x-rays of it) but the doctor only showed up once and was a complete ass.
