So...no news is good news...

Thursday, January 13, 2011

My daughter said if I had something serious they probably would let me know the results right away.

I guess I agree...but would still like to know if anything showed up.

Perhaps the doctor is waiting for the last blood test to come back.....

It was hinted that the last blood test could take another week or more!!!

I did not hear from internist nor neurologist today, though their secretaries both said my test results were on the desks of the doctors....

P.S. I talked to Drs offices today. Internist is in this afternoon (for echocardiogram results). The neurologist is in today but the blood test for myasthenia gravis is still not back. It could take another week....

    Don't stress too much. I tend to agree with your daughter - if something was bad, the office would be calling you right away. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Home again and on medical leave...

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

It's not official, but the papers are sitting on the neurologist's desk to sign to take me off from work for 2 weeks (which can be extended if necessary).

I hope he calls me today with the results of tests. His secretary said all the tests have returned except for one of the blood tests.

My daughter said perhaps I could do some housecleaning while I am waiting...(great idea)... emoticon

    Sometimes I wonder if Doctors make phone calls like any other appointment. Half and hour late and then they still don't know what your there for. Better luck tomorrow maybe. emoticon

It is 7:30 p.m. and am giving up on the doctor calling....

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

at 11:30 the secretary said they had the results of the MRI/MRA but not the blood test....but he or one of his nurses would call me with the results today...

I am finally giving up on him calling at 7:30 p.m.

It sure would be nice to know SOMETHING.....

    Yes, if no one has called by 7 PM you can figure it's a wash for the day from hearing anything about test results. I hear you tho---stay at home waiting to hear something and ( when told someone would call today) and ncall back; like our time waiting isn't important. Hope you get that call on Wednesday.

Dr has results of MRI/MRA but not blood work...

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

He has not called me and I am waiting for a phone call.....

I also am working on getting a medical leave of absence for the problems I am having especially since my vision is still not good and I cannot read the road signs...

I hope to find out the MRI/MRA results this afternoon....

Pins and needles...if I were a drinker I would probably have a shot of something while I am waiting...

Deep breathing, neck and knee exercises this afternoon...

Monday, January 10, 2011

Taking it easy while waiting for results of MRI/MRA etc, blood test and results of echocardiogram, also.

I read the echocardiogram report and since I am not a doctor I cannot tell if the abnormalities are anything that need further testing or referral to a cadiologist.

I have spent way too much time researching various possible disorders I might have. I did this when I had my first biopsy of growths (tumors or cysts) of the pancreas. Since the biopsy turned out to be negative for cancer I did settle down about that. The endocrinologist told me I was "lucky these growths were found at a small size as an incidental finding on a gall bladder ultrasound." The biopsy and first scan of the pancreas were done almost 3 years ago and I have that to look forward to on annual basis, probably in February this year.

The nurse consultant from my insurance company told me to do deep breathing and quit researching on the internet (which I had already decided to do before she told me).

Another way to put it is: Let go and let God. No sense making my blood pressure go up further.... emoticon emoticon

    I think is is good to be informed. However, when you start going to a doctor for help, you are trusting in their expertise. Prayers for you.

    Too much information can definitely be a bad thing when it comes to medical issues.

    I stopped looking medical things up on line.
It always ended up worrying me more and usually unnecessarily.
I'll pray that things go well for you.

    Too much information can really ruin one's day. Relax and let the chips fall where they may. It has always worked for me. emoticon
