Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Do an ultrasound and check the diameter of each kidney. Also do a renal function test. If the diameter is less than 15 mm and renal function is not impaired, we can manage conservatively with antibiotics and frequent monitoring. If the diameter is increased and renal function is abnormal, we have to go for surgical correction. As of now continue both the antibiotics to prevent infections.

Wishing you good health.

Thanks.

Hello, I am from Canada and suffer chronic pain and fibromyalgia for 25 years. I am on methadone as one treatment and it has been recently altered here. Methadose solution for pain 10mg/ml Methadone HCI 10 mg/ml. Dose, drink 1.5ml four times daily. I can not take this as I said it has been changed. Now the government has made it sugar based cherry flavored, gag reflux crap. I have tried to wean my self off but have experienced anger, smashing plates, cried out for doctor assisted suicide as the pain and withdrawal of this drug is making me crazy. I am on subcutaneous lidocaine infusions weekly, nerve blocks in neck and shoulders, cortisone injections in both hips for bursitis and nerve blocks in lower back, L4,L5. I suffer with herniated, degenerative discs, c5,c6 too. I have osteoporosis, parathesia, IBS, awaiting surgery for bladder prolapse, endometriosis which required hysterectomy and oophorectomy and numerous laporoscopies leaving me with adhesions which are a constant cause of further pain. I am a chronic pain disease sufferer and to the world I look great...haha! I initially started to write to you only for advise on taking myself off methadone but here I went on and on. The list is long and I see many doctors and pain specialists however my quality of life is nil and I am only 55 years young. I can not seem to find answers, help or hope other than being prescribed opiates, methadone which has been changed to suit the government not the patients needs and numerous medications that make me worse. I am on a roller coaster of hell and pain and now I am withdrawing off this horrible new recipe of methadone as I throw up trying to take it. Why change something that was easy to take to this horrible sugar based cherry cough medicine taste that burns to the pit of my stomach whereby I need gravol settle? I am frustrated, in pain and have talked to nurse on line tonight...she told me to go to the hospital...LOL! Right! I can not live in this pain...my doctor retired, great guy...now I have a woman who has nine kids and never can catch up or give a you know what about her patients. I give up! This is only the tip of the ice berg...you have now idea many health issues I have! I have to leave my city to go for help to Vancouver, thank God for HOPE AIR! They took me to the last appointment with my Neurosurgeon and he has ordered another MRI, will be seeing me after or before if I can not take the pain! I am a mess...What happened to good doctors??? How did we get FIBROMYALGIA??? I have a clue...DDT spraying all over the playground I grew up in...playground was a gas line and electric power field...what do you think of that? Five out of six women who played there as children were not able to conceive!!! Gee, I wonder! I am on a quest to find answers and thought perhaps I would start here...I doubt I will get an answer though...Great! Off to cyber space this goes...I am from Canada and You are in the States! Nice! I was on a Canadian site...how all of a sudden does it go here and now I need to pay! Well, thanks for nothing....I will proceed elsewhere because I will find an answer and from you...obviously not!

doctor1 MD

Hi, I ve been on methadone for 17yrs. I was on 160mgs. I started detoxing 5mgs a month. It was working til I got down to 40mgs. Than I had to move where there were no methadone programs. Now I managed to get down to 5mgs. How long does methadone stay in your system & what does it do to your body? I m 57 yrs old now.

If I am addicted to opiates, will tramadol keep me from going into withdrawal and being "dope sick?"

doctor1 MD

I have joint pain and use hydocodone - 10 milliigrams each day only and tramadol , only because it was prescribed in 1985 and probably withdrawal may be severe, Celebrex helps a great deal but I may have kidney problems as a result. my non-regular...

doctor1 MD
