Kidney stones?

Saturday - husband woke with severe middle left back pain. No OTC painkillers helped
Monday - GP suspects kidney stones due to bad infection from Urine test. Gives injection and Anti Biotics and orders Xray
Tuesday - Xray doesn''t show stones but inconclusive. He receives Pethidine injection from GP and more meds including Lantogesic and Buscopan.
Wednesday - It''s Eid, doctor not available and he is still in terrible pain, none of the painkillers word. What should we do?

He will have to consult a doctor for a second opinion. If the pain is really bad, the doctor might consider admitting him to hospital. A CT scan of his abdomen can give a definate answer to the cause of his pain.

Thanks doc, went for a 2nd opinion and he actually slipped a disc in his back! Was in hospital for one night but now they want to see if it gets better on it''s own.
