Some of the things I thought of and/or felt during recuperation period from my bout with prostrate cancer.
Why the pain has not subsided is a mystery to me
I lay here writhing in pain that never subsides
Doctors, explanations, why and when will it stop
Too busy, not their mistake, see one of the others
Hours grow into days, I cannot sleep
Sleep finally comes, yet interrupted - nature’s call
Confines of my room, my own living hell
Recovery hard, self-pity easy
Drugs my friends, my roommates forever
Struggle, fight hard, overcome the depression
Sanity is waning, I must find support
Enter loved ones and friends, a lifeline for me
Surprise, a huge kidney stone I happened to pass
Pain finally eases among other things
Operation successful, one part at least
Side effects, a few but seem worse than the cure
This road, too long, and never been easy
Will also continue the rest of my life

|Good lord! How could your doctors miss a kidney stone.
Glad you are doing better.
You were eloquent in your rant.

|Pain from a kidney stone that gets lodged in the urinary tract is a pain without equal. Good that you passed it. A balky prostate is mans purgatory on earth. Hope all works out for you.|
