I went to A&E last summer with horrendous right sided back pain and peeing blood. I was seen quickly by the triage nurse and then the doctor. I was given painkillers relatively quickly and sent for an xray. The xray only showed constipation and so I was sent home with laxatives and 3 days of trimethoprim (no explanation of what this was for). However, when I got home the pain was unbearable and I eventually passed a kidney stone. Xrays only show 50% of kidney stones!
