Well I thought I would first apologize to my readers ( they are few but mean the world to me ) I have had a hard week. School, feeling off and then SNOW!!!! we had SO much snow on Tuesday that the monkeys and I spent most of the day outside. Rang Tang was able to make his very first Snow Angel, and Snowman. He was so excited. I did take LOTS of photos that I will post either tonight or tomorrow. ( very busy day today )
Well the week started off with me feeling like I had a kidney infection. So I went to the Dr's where I had to take the ever so fun urine sample ( which I swear to goodness I end up peeing all over my hand. ) Being Fat and trying to judge where to put the cup is NOT fun...
I sat patiently waiting for the Dr. to come in and say YEP you have a kidney infection, but No I didn't have that or a UTI... so then its on to the next questions.
Dr: I am thinking it maybe your gallbladder
me: Um nope that is not possible, Had it removed 8 years ago.
Dr: Oh good to know, then I would like to get an ultrasound and see if it could be your appendix.
Me: Nope that too is gone.
Dr: WOW you are making this easy. Ok lets do this. Lets draw blood and do some ex rays. Ok
Me: sounds fine to me.
so after having my blood drawn and some ex rays taken he comes into the room and says can I show you your ex rays
I go out and I see what looks like sand in my ex ray all the way up my right side.
Now if you know me, you know that I suffered with SEVER endo to the point that I ended up having a hysterectomy. So when I see this sand stuff on my ex ray I start to cry. He tells me it is NOT endo. but in fact POO.... yep I am officially full of Sh*@ ( ok laugh it out.... )
he explains that he is concerned to see that much on my right side when my left is perfectly clear. He asks when I had my last bowel movement. I explain that morning, 3 times. He tells me this is concerning for the fact that I had endo on my Colon and liver he is concerned that the scar tissue may have caused some damage to my right side. So he tells me he wants my pipes all cleaned out then they would do a cat scan.
So I have officially been on the Colon-a-scopy (sp) diet. You know the one where you have to drink that nasty crap 8oz ever 10 min till its gone. IT WAS GROSS. and I can't eat anything till Friday. I have been on water, chicken broth, Gatorade and hot green tea, NOT FUN.... And All I am saying is that after all the bathroom visits and the clear liquids I BEST LOSE AT LEAST 5 pounds.
I guess what bothers me most is even after having a hysterectomy to get rid of Endo and live a life pain free, I may still be having issues with other organs do from the scar tissue that Endo caused. I want to cry and scream WHY????? am I ever going to be free of this disease??
SO now I am at work. On a side happy note Grasshopper has a choir concert tonight and this will be the first one I have been able to go to. I am so excited for him. I will post photos of that as soon as I can.
So to my Endo Sisters. STAY STRONG AND KNOW YOU ARE LOVED
