Wow! I sure am bad about keeping up with journalling. I really meant to do this at least weekly. I guess I feel that no one wants to hear my long sob story.
I had an ultrasound a few weeks ago as my accupuncture doctor wants to make sure my gallbladder and liver are okay due to taking the pain meds for so long. As expected, all was okay. Except, the results showed a pelvic hematoma. My doc shrugged it off. Said it was from all my previous surgeries, but it's never been there before.
Anyways, I requested a CT Scan as suggested on the report. I will have that done on Tuesday. I also have a hida scan scheduled for the 15th to check out the gall bladder more closesly.
I doubt these tests are going to show a reason for my problems, but I feel better having them done, just to be sure. When you've been dealing with these problems for so long, you never know when things have changed.
I have been having a very difficult time lately. It's hard to function on a daily basis. I've been listless and lifeless. My accupuncture doc gave me some new supplements that really seemed to have helped. I can actually stay up past 6pm!
I do have a new pain that is driving me crazy.
I think I pulled a muscle to the right of my right breast. I can't imagine how I did it, but it's the only explanation I can think of. Last night, it hurt to even breathe! If the pain was in the front or back, I would be concerned and call the doctor, but the location of this pain I don't think is reason for concern. I just don't know why the heck it is hurting so bad. :cry:
Well, that's my update. Things are status quo here. No better, just hanging in there.
