Well - the first hormone test came back with just ONE imbalance (prolatin), therefore they wanted to test it with a fasting to see if the level changes. It was a little high - like I'm pregnant. If it comes back normal on this next test, it could be as easy as just changing my birth control pill - worst case - maybe a D&C.
Then of course, I look up prolatin on webmd - the VERY worst case scenerio - a tumor. NICE! DON'T TELL THE HUBBY THAT! He'd freak out! That's the one thing about Webmd - it gives you a heads up on what it could be, but also the VERY worst case scenerio. I like checking it just so I know what I could expect when I do go in to the doctor.
I'm not really worried about it - I have a feeling I'll be changing birth control. I've had a D&C before and before that would happen I would have to have a ultrasound to check everything out.
So I should hear in a couple of days. Next is the visit with the regular doc on Tuesday for followup to the cholesterol. Let's see if all of those salads have helped. It's been hard getting the salads down this week - I think it's just because of not having them the whole week. I think I need to change up the dressing - I think I'm not that big of a ranch dressing fan anymore - at least not on salads.
Thanks for all of your support. I'm thankful that I can just air my dirty laundry on here and there's no judging. We are all in this together - the weight loss journey, the medical problems, the emotional problems.
