August 20, 2007

I finally received the results of my ultrasound from the doctor's office yesterday and supposedly it showed nothing. That's right, a big fat NOTHING. Meanwhile, the pain has gotten even worse, the painkillers aren't touching it, I'm constantly nauseous, and I'm running a low grade fever nonstop. :(

Bright and early tomorrow morning I have an appointment with my doctor and then I guess we go from there. I think at this point I'm going to ask to be referred to a gastroenterologist and see if they can figure out what's going on. Everything I've read thus far is telling me that there are a ton of tests I should have done BEFORE a colonoscopy so I'm not willing to just rush in and have them shove that camera up my ass just yet you know?

All I do know is that I'm a wreck and would probably welcome ten fibro flare ups if it meant this other bullshit stopped. It just gets real old is all. I'm sick of being sick! Time for some of this health crap to get taken care of so I can actually enjoy my life.
