Went to the doctor today about my sudden burst of menstruation last week. She seemed a little more concerned than I was. Had a PAP with a lot of extra poking and prodding. This is the first time she has seem this part of me and she was quite impressed with the placement of my uterus. I keep mine tucked quite far back. She said, ooo, I bet you had a whole lotta back cramps during your periods. Yup, you betcha. They were almost exciting as back LABOR for 17 hours. My son was directionally challenged during the birth process.
Tomorrow I have to go in for an ultrasound, and then next week an endometrial biopsy. I went ahead and scheduled my annual mamogram for August at the same time. I thought, why not! I think this will be my first biopsy, ever. Woo. In the previous years as I have found more and more interesting little tidbits about my oddly constructed body I have tagged the posts so when I need historical information and dates it’s easy to find. I am not going to do that with this one! I will not accept having anything else go wacky with me. So for all of you ladies, now you know. After menopause if you start bleeding it is not normal and you will need to be checked out. There are many things that can lead to bleeding and almost all of them require treatment of some kind.
Armed with MB’s information I called the lab where I had a bunch of blood work done in May and asked them what I would need to do to get copies of my labs. She said the only way to do it is to go the hospital and request them in person. When I hung up the phone with her I realized that the same webpage I was on to get her phone number also told me how to get copies of my records. According to the site I could printout a nifty release form and mail it to the hospital. So I did! We will see what happens now. This wasn’t exciting lab work or anything. It was just normal yearly blood tests, my thyroid test, and my kidney function test. According to my doctor a couple of things look borderline, but all in all normal. The other lab work as the allergy testing. I go back to that doctor next week so I will find out the results from him.
Xanga should make a category for Medical, Public, Private, Protected. Okay, I guess that would just be for me.
I have a very busy next few weeks. Tonight I have to go shop for a skirt. I want a casual khaki type skirt for a charity thing tomorrow. I use to own a khaki skirt and I wore it to death in the summer! I wonder what happened to it.
Off I go to pout for awhile.
