The pain was crippling and completely unbearable, but as the CEO of my family, how could I survive nearly a month and a half on pain pills? That’s how long I was first told I would have to wait for lithotripsy – the treatment I needed for my kidney stone. In the meantime, my family still needed me to be their full-time superhero – an impossible feat while living with unimaginable pain. Then we found out that Trident Medical Center is the only area hospital to offer lithotripsy service 24 hours-a-day, seven days-a-week, so a quick call to Dr. David Brandli was all it took to get the immediate relief I needed to function as Super Mom again.
