I loved my nephrologist! Yay! He asked lots of questions. He was in the room just asking me questions for at least 15 minutes. And he spent another five just reading all of my tests.
He said when they did the CatScan they did a full blood test on me, and just didn’t tell me. My kidney chemicals? Enzymes? are well within normal ranges.
The first time he touched me he put his finger on the exact spot I have pain. This made me inordinately happy!
I said “All of the tests keep finding things wrong, but every doctor says that the issues I’m having should not be causing pain, now that you’ve heard my symptoms and seen my test results do you see anything in there that could relate to my pain?” and he said……..drumroll, please……. “Oh yes!” “A couple of different things!” HOT DAMN!
So, next step had a urinalysis today, and then they gave me a jug. That’s right, a jug! I have to pee in a jug for a full 24 hours. I will be working from home on that day! My husband thought it sounded much more convenient, just carrying a jug with you. When I explained you have to keep it refrigerated I swear I could hear the wheels in his head turning, and I got an immediate picture in my head of my husband standing in front of an open fridge peeing in a jug. After that’s done, more blood tests. Back to the doc on July 1st.
I also stopped and ordered a pair of prescription sunglasses. Cause I’m cool like that. Oh, and because our vision insurance changed and so I’m eligible again and I don’t need new normal glasses. Yay!
And found out that a Gluten Free bakery is opening up next door to my eye-docs. I know a girl who will be very happy!
Back to work!
