I’m still trying to shake a cold that has been hanging around for a week and a half now. If this doesn’t end soon I’m going to be on a watch list for the amount of Sudafed that I’ve been buying. Right now it’s too late for Sudafed but too early for Robitussin PM so bear with me.
- Sando – Started doing injections every other week. This week was the first one after only two weeks so next week I should feel better or worse than I normally do a week after the shot. Fingers crossed it’s better.
- Scans – I had an ultrasound follow up to my CT and it confirmed that I most likely just have an ovarian cyst and there’s nothing to suggest that it’s malignant. I’ve heard that before, but I trust these people more than the last group. I have a follow up in 3 months (well, 2 months from now).
- Surgery – Of course Hernia Henry starts bothering me as soon as hubs leaves his job selling mesh for hernia repairs (among other things). Since it’s getting worse, Dr. T said it’s probably time to do something about it. I saw Dr. Karakousis and the plan is to have Dr. Roses (his partner) remove my gallbladder laparoscopically using my belly button (aka Hernia Henry), Karakousis will look around for sneaky tumors, and they’ll repair the hernia at the end. Of course I thought I was way ahead of the game giving all of my scan CDs directly to radiology when I went for my ultrasound in January, but of course they didn’t upload the images like they were supposed to so Karakousis didn’t have anything to look at for my appointment. I’m hoping to schedule the surgery for May when my mom is going to be here anyway but I can’t schedule it more than a month out so hopefully in April we’ll have a better plan.
- ER – Apparently my body missed being in the ER since it’s been over a year. Last week about an hour after the nurse started my IV for fluids at home I started feeling really bad, couldn’t catch my breath, talk, move… not cool. I managed to start doing the moving thing and talking a little bit so hubs called the home nursing people and they told him to take me to the ER. on the way and while I was being triaged I almost passed out a few times but didn’t. Of course I was pretty much back to normal by the time I saw a doc and I felt like an idiot, but no idea what happened. All is well now.
That’s all that I can think of for now…
