I never did update last week on how all the doctor appointments were going… the week was just so busy and I was so exhausted and emotionally drained and not feeling well, I just never seemed able to drag myself to the computer. I spent all week visiting doctors, I think I had an appointment almost every day. I started the week out seeing my old PCP to get a second opinion, I was a nervous wreck by the time I got to my appointment. He took a few x-rays, felt of the lumps, we talked for a bit and he seemed to think we were dealing with lipomas but was concerned with the amount of pain I was experiencing. He decided to send me to a specialist that could look more into what was going on, do a simple test to extract small tissue samples.
Waiting on my appointment with the specialist wasn’t much fun; I had a really rough week with pain and being extremely uncomfortable. At times, no matter what I did I couldn’t get comfortable. I laid on the couch, laid in bed, stuffed pillows under my side, nothing helped. On top of that I dealt with a massive migraine all week and my pillows definitely failed me this week, I woke up with my migraine hurting just as much as it did when I went to bed along with an extremely stiff neck. We seriously need to go pillow shopping again.
My specialist appointment went okay, again I was pretty much a nervous wreck and very anxious. He was very nice, felt of the lumps and asked lots of questions. Instead of doing the simple test my doctor had mentioned, the specialist decided to schedule me for a CT scan. Of course this worried me even more but he said to let him do the worrying. He just wants to be able to see whats in there and what we are dealing with.
I go for my CT scan in the morning… to say I’m nervous and worried would be a huge understatement. I can’t eat or drink after midnight, definitely going to have to leave myself plenty of notes since I’m such a night owl and since I’m sure I won’t be getting much rest tonight.
I go back to see my specialist on Thursday for the test results… Thursday seems weeks… months away. I’m trying to think positive but I’m so worried 🙁
