I can only assume from the various comments that most of you have not had a full blown kidney infection. Believe me you would certainly know about it if you had. Mine started yesterday (Sunday) and I have been climibing up the walls with the pain - rang the doctors surgery and was asked to produce a urine sample (even the doctor was shocked at the colour) and the stick they test it with went off the charts! Needless to say I was given antibiotics and pain medication. Hoped the pain medication would kick in and like a bloody fool I went on to work - I lasted two hours! Added to this the thirst I have is unbelieveable so I am also drinking water by the gallon - would love to have cranberry but being a diabetic prohibts this due to the sugar level. So I will let you know how long it takes to recover - What a time to get one (my Grandson is due to be born tomorrow and I was supposed to look after his brother - that is now at the window, so I will miss the most important day of my new Grandsons life). I have the distinct feeling that had I been an animal of any kind then a vet would have taken pity on me and put me out of my misery.
