(((((Friends))))) thanks for the good wishes and ers: I think they worked.

My appointment was at 2:15, went in at 3:00 and only came out at 4:00. It was a protective appointment: she's testing my hormones, cholesterol, thyroid, for diabetes, for UTI as well as for the routine stuff. She also did a pap test.

Since it was a general, she did a thorough exam. Here's what she found:
  • I have an enlarged ganglion under my left arm that she seemed very concerned about: she stressed the importance of self breast exam
  • My BP was very high: 154 over 90. This is especially high for me since I'm usually stable at 118 over 78. So I have to have it monitored closely.
  • The eczema on my labias turned out to be a bad rash... so I'm not to use to hydrocortisone and to stick with the vitamine e cream
I'm to see her again 4 weeks after I get the tests done (I'll have to call for appointment after I book the appointment for the blood tests).

So, hopefully, with all the tests she's running, I'll get a little more insight as to what is going on with this body of mine.

ps: somehow I've "lost" two inches... I've measured 5 feet 4 1/2 inches ever since I was 12. However, today I registered at 5 feet 2 1/2 inches (I know this can't be right: my mom and sister are shorter than I am, much shorter, and they're 5 feet 2 inches).

Sounds like the Dr. is being very thorough - thats good. I will be hoping that these tests give you some answers. And I'll be praying that the ganglion she found is something thats easily fixed. And that BP of yours - whoa ! *Please* keep a good eye on that - you cant be too careful in that area. Occasionally my BP will go thru the roof - usually when my pain is flaring bad (mine is normally borderline - & I'm on BP meds).
I'm so glad that the app. went well - sounds like your Dr. is a real keeper ! Think you can send her my way ??
Take care Dany - & remember to watch that BP.

(((Dany))), that's great, it sounds like your DR is covering all the bases... did she order a mammogram for you too? I'm with you on the bp issues... I had very low bp all my life until 6 months post op from the hyst.

That height thing - I could understand 'shrinking' a tiny bit post hyst due to bone loss, but not an inch and a half, not so quickly. Must be something else going on?

I'm glad you're getting these tests done, hopefully they'll provide a lot of useful information so your DR can help you feel better!
