Well I'm back from the RNP and I'm not sure how much further ahead I am. The u/s found a cyst that isn't "simple", i.e., part of a woman's natural cycle. But they have no idea what it is. The RNP said because I'm only 30 (update: don't know what I was thinking, I'm really 38) it's "probably" not ovarian cancer. That's not much of a reassurance.
So now I still have to have a new u/s and the ct scan. I don't have to drink junk for it, it goes in by IV. That's even worse news. I have such needle issues (though I can now get one by myself). When I had Ella I had to have one -even wanted one because I was tired of throwing up every time they made me have a drink, I finally refused to drink anymore. I'm not exaggerating here: it took 2 attempts with 4 people holding my arm for the nurse to get it in!!! Luckily, Colin isn't too busy and will be able to come with me. He can help hold my arm and explain to the nurses.
It's just something I can't control, no matter how hard I try. I had to have allergy testing done when I was 3. It involved waaaaay too many needles. Mom said I was fine with needles before then, but after ... In the past I've jumped so hard needles have come out and gone in again. One time I had to have a tb test done (for school) and I had my arm so tensed the nurse couldn't get the needle to go in my skin :) Needless to say, my wonderful Mom never made me get immunized at school, we always did it at the doctor.
So that's my news that isn't news. The annoying thing is that if I had of kept my mouth shut about the u/s tech comments, none of this would be going on because I feel fine. I'm even pretty healthy as far as I usually am. On top of it all, I caught a headcold from being at the hospital with all the sick people. I just hope it stays in my head, it's too early in the year to start with my post-cold, 3 month long, asthma cough.
