New pains, no gains 08-07-2005 - 05:27 PM
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.

I think it's good you are having the tests. It's true, you never know what changes are going on. I had a pain like you describe in the breast area. It almost felt like a hernia type feeling- it happened in yoga class. Weird huh?
Hugs, news
PS - feel free to tell your long sob stories any time!

Go ahead and share your sob stories. Writing it down and seeing where you have been and where you are can give you some measure of what is going on.

I sure pray you can get some relief and these tests show something that can give you that relief.

Oh, yuck...... I'm so sorry you're going through this. There are so many of us who can relate. But that doesn't make it any easier on you, I know.

If there's one thing I have realized over the years it is that the single most exhausting experience on the planet is PAIN. It's not just a feeling. It can absolutely take over. I pray that these tests shed some light on what has been causing yours.

Hi Kim, I haven't been posting much and I don't have my journal public anymore. I have been getting therapy though and I wanted to suggest a psychiatrist who deals with pain management - he will have an m.d. and will be able to consult with you about the physical explanations behind your ongoing pain. He might be helpful to you in addition to your accupuncturist. Mine has helped me so much through aftermath of the unplanned emergency hyst. Take care and

I think it's really good you're having all the tests done. I have dealt with chronic headaches for many years and in the aftermath of my surgery I ended up getting a new PCP. He wants to do a complete physical and run a battery of tests to try to track down the cause. You never know, and even if you were to end up back at square one, at least you will know everything else is all right. Plus you may even find the real cause!
