Still dont know much, but know a little more than I did yesterday!

That make sense?


So, I had my ultrasound this morning at 9:15am. This was a long one, very long. She checked both kidneys, as she was focusing on the right one I could actually see the cyst. The radiologist wasnt happy with the size of the cyst because of my age so he ordered an immediate CTscan. Of course we had to wait for approval from the insurance, TWO hours later! UGH, I hate waiting!

I had the contrast dye, what a weird feeling that is! After the test we went into the radiologists office and he went over the films with us. Not only is there a good sized gall stone that will hopefully just stay put and not cause me any trouble. The cyst is attached the bottom of my kidney. This thing is SO big that ya cant even see the kidney.

He thinks it may be an obstruction of some type and said the Urologist will probably want to go in with a scope! JOY!!

I think I know how thats done and the ONLY way Im doing it is if Im out or heavily sedated! No, no and no!!

For some reason my phone is out today and I see the Dr called early this afternoon, unfortunetly I cant get into my voice mail to get his message or call him to see what he thinks. We had new windows and the house weatherized yesterday and today and I think when they were foaming the basement they hit the phone line because I still have the internet.

So Im a little irritated that I cant hear the msg from the Dr right now!

On the way home we stopped at that yard sale again and I picked up 4 crates, a gameboard and 2 more dolls for $13 total. So that was a good thing to a really crummy day!

Thank you again for all of your t's, p's and comments:)

Well, at least they have been able to see what is actually going on. I feel for you! What an awful experience! I hope you can get the dr's message soon! Can you get to another phone and call back in? Hopefully they can take care of this very soon so you feel much better! I think I would go back to that wonderful yardsale again too!
