Me and My Sweet Nephew That I Got To Visit Last Weekend!
Last time I updated, I told you I was having pain, a gall bladder test, and a ct and bone scan for a suspicious spot on my kidney. That was about a week ago.
The gallbladder test showed a very healthy gallbladder and liver. Yay!
The pain I was feeling became lower and much more severe. We spent the last few days trying to figure out what is causing it. I had a pelvic ultrasound this morning and we think we found the culprit. I am on a medication for 5 years that I have to take for cancer, but one of the side affects is ovarian cysts. We have been watching my cysts closely, monthly. Doc decided to go to every 3 months, as they were just kind of going up and down with my cycles and not causing me any pain. Well, in those 3 months they decided to misbehave. I have a new large cyst and it is bullying its way in there, causing all of the pain I have been having. It is a harmless cyst, and will probably go down with my cycle, but in the meantime I have to figure out how to deal with the pain. It is much less today. I am so grateful!
Prayers for wisdom, please, as we decided what to do if it continues to be this painful each month. There are several options, and it can get confusing, especially when my most trusted doctors have very different opinions on what should be done.
As for the CT and bone scan to check the spot on my kidney, I was all ready to get them this morning, but yesterday evening received a call from Doc saying my insurance company didn't approve them yet. It had already been a long week of waiting and wondering, so this news was hard to swallow. We found out today they have approved, but I can't get in until the end of next week. Patience.
It did end up being ok, as my kids were home from school and I could spend some time with them instead of at the hospital all day getting my insides looked at. :) That was a blessing.
I just wanted to update you all, I'm typing fast as my hubby is waiting for me to watch a bit of T.V. with him! I love Friday nights!! I hope this finds you all blessed on this very special Good Friday.
