I need help. I went and got my blood tests back and the doctor wants me to see a kidney specialist and take an ultrasound. I urinate 10 times a night so how am I going to hold in 24 ounces of water for the test! I'm in a lot of pain, especially today, in my stomach and back, but I took a Tylenol and my Ativan to calm my nerves. I also take a Percocet in the morning for the pain. I want to go to the hospital but I'm afraid if I have kidney surgery I'll die. I'm a 69 year old female with panic attacks and arthritis.
