3 month follow-up with new Gyn/Onc

Just got back from my appointment. She said everything looked fine and "felt" fine. I did have a little bit of grannulation at the cuff. She said she routinely does a biopsy of that, which she did....OUCH! And then she used the silver nitrate.

She is also scheduling my first CT scan with both oral contrast and IV contrast (have read on another post here how yucky that contrast is....what fun!).

Jeanine...you'll be pleased to know I had a perfect scootch (and yes, the doctor did say scootch down!!). The exam paper did not tear and hardly a wrinkle! Nice to have real cotton johnny too!!

Sounds like a great three month checkup for you!!! Congrats.
I've been the granulation, silver nitrate route. And I agree, OUCH!!! I am sure the CAT scan will bring good news also.

Ouch! and Perfect!

The scootch sounds like a 10 to me! I'm sorry the biopsy and silver nitrate hurt. The only thing bad about the contrast (oral) is that they "spike it" so it does't clog up in your intestines--so go right home!

I am so proud! A perfect 10! You know, it's not as easy as most people think. And I've been thinking--I'll bet a lot of our male docs have probably never tried to scootch down a table. It takes a lot of guts to even try, and then to put grace on top of it, well, it's the mark of a true athlete!!!

Ouch on that granulation!

Good luck with the CT scan--let me know when it is so I can get it on the calendar.

Did you like your new dr? I had my first CT Scan today. After reading some of the posts, I was dreading the drinking. What they used really wasn't that bad. I don't drink diet drinks, but the other girls in the office drink Crystal Light Lemonade. That's exactly what it tasted like to me. Three normal size styrofoam cups. Drank one every half an hour. Make sure you have something to read while waiting. Very tolerable. They even used a really small needle for the IV and they did it in the main vein where they usually draw blood. Not like the IV for surgery! Good Luck!

CT scan

I have my first (and only I hope) cat scan next Tuesday. I have to drink half 4 hours before and the other half 1 hour before. Glad for the tip about going right home. Didn't realize it could go through you that fast. I looked at the bottle and it has sorbital, which is a sweetner but can cause diarrhea and I suspect the potassium citrate may be a laxative also. You would think as a nurse I would know this but most of the people we give this too for diagnostic reason at the hosptial are usually blocked up or already have the runs. I always feel for the people with the blockages, they are usually throwing up already and can't get it all down or throw it back up, but the iv contrast takes care of that usually.

Congrats on the perfect "Scootch" Ouchy on the silver nitrate.

Wishing you well for your CT Scan, I hope you have an easy time with the contrast. The type that I had here, was two bottles, one started two hours before and the other one hour before. They also gave me a small glass when I got there.

I hope you received nothing but great news and hope that the granulation will resolve itself quickly.
