Hurry up and wait

08 Jan

Went to the doctor: after the examination (diagnosis: cyst) he scheduled me for an ultra-sound to be done Thursday because it’s all too tender on the left side for him to do his ‘touchy feely thing’ and he can’t tell exactly what’s going on. So, if I am still with cyst and in pain on Thursday, he’ll schedule me for a laparoscopy on Friday; out patient surgery.

However, after going through all the scheduling and such, he got the results of the CAT scan (which I had done elsewhere last week), which read that I had a fluid like, 3 mm big buildup on my RIGHT side. Hmmm, it’s my LEFT side that is in pain. Apparently it made perfect sense to him and in turn seemed less concerned. He is under the impression that my pains will go away in the next two days. Gosh I hope he’s right!

That’s it…end of report! To be continued Thursday afternoon. I am relieved that it is nothing urgent, but on the other hand I wish it was so I can do something about it, because I am in pain. Once again I have to sit and wait!

    Pain that is going to go away is the best kind of news. In the meantime, you just have to whatever you can to be as comfortable as possible. Also, as much as I know people hate to take pain meds, you have to do what you have to do. Take ’em if you’ve got ’em!

    Hope you feel better.. soon.
