Update - I wasted an Ativan!!

Hello Sisters,

First, I want to thank all of you who calmed my anxiety and offered fabulous suggestions. I will say that a low dosage of Ativan certainly had me calm...he could have suggested/done anything to me and I would have gone along with him. Must remember that in the future!

He didn't say a word about cathing...I'm sure he remembered the hard time I gave him last week. Instead he gave me Levaquin - in case there is an infection and Peridium to soothe the bladder and urethra. If those medications don't work he's sending me to a Urologist for a complete work up for possible IC.

I am feeling good about the plan - and if I do need to see the Urologist at least I'll know ahead of time to take an Ativan.

What would I have done without my sisters????? Thank you all a thousand times over!

Try not to think of it as "wasting" that Ativan. You probably weren't stressing in the waiting room before your appointment like you would have if you didn't take it.

Good luck!

You're absolutely right - I was calmly flipping through a magazine instead of trying to keep my heart from jumping out of my chest!

I'm glad your appointment went well! Hopefully the drugs the doc prescribed will resolve your problems.

And you didn't waste an Ativan; you were able to relax and go with the flow rather than panic at the sight of your doctor.

Keep smiling!
