Wouldn't you know, he didn't ask me this time!
Here's the scoop, I actually got to see him before the appt! I met him in the elevator going up.
As always he spent alot of time with me and I didn't feel rushed. He went over the stuff from the Osteo doc and was really impressed. Although he did say he didn't understand why she had me on the thyroid supplement as the thyroid test results looked fine to him.
I may just stop taking that.
We chatted a bit about the Osteo doc and what's going on with that. He actually did take the time to read thru ALL of it.
He felt the bulge, and oh my gosh it hurt so bad when he pressed on it. I was wincing the whole time. I thought I was going to hyperventilate. I was like "yep, that's where it hurts". Than when he was done, it took awhile for me to regain my composure. He did a pretty thorough check. He doesn't think it's a hernia, he thinks it's drum roll please......... SCAR TISSUE! Duh!
He kept talking about all the weight that I look like I've lost and he seems to think that perhaps with the weight loss that the scar tissue has become denser. He definetly could see that I was in alot of pain.
Long story short, he's going to send me for a CT Scan of the abdomen, pelvis, and something else. Some of y'all may remember last year when I had the enlarged pancreas, well he said that we definetly need to recheck that and he also said the CT Scan would show for sure if I did or didn't have a hernia and with the weight loss he wants to be sure that nothing else is going on.
So that's where I'm at, waiting on a call from his nurse to let me know when the CT Scan is. I did slip in the doctor's letter from the Adhesions.org site. He asked me for the web address and I pointed out where it was. Hopefully he will check it out.
I have to tell you ladies he was just so darn nice and he was so VERY VERY concerned about my weight loss. He did say my incision looked good and I said "that's because you did it". Than he checked out my neck and said that it looked it very good, again I said "that's because you did it".
Anyways, that's about it. Sigh. More tests, more waiting and still in alot of pain. But perhaps a tiny bit of hope again.
