Ok Spark Fam,
Took some labs on Friday to get ready to see my Endocrynologist for my hyperthyroidism follow up appt. Well I got an elevated result for a test that deals with my pancreas (Amylase). All the other tests came back normal but my primary care sent me an email to get a CT scan of my pelvis and abdominal region and all of this makes me get on google, because what is REALLY going on. Bad idea. By the time I got off google I diagnosised myself with acute pancreitis. So now I am like ... you have got to be kidding me!!! I'll be 42 on Sunday and all I keep thinking is, getting old SUCKS!!!! Last year this time I found out about my Thyroid, now this year I have pancreas issues. So I saw my endo today, he said he's not concerned about the elevated levels because it's not that high but to get the CT done so that they can look at it. Then my Endo said he felt a lymphnoid on the left side of my neck but since it's only one, he's not concerned. Ok so now I'm going to be feeling all over my neck everyday. I'm telling you turning 40 has been the pits!!!
So tomorrow I get my CT Scan and I have to drink some stuff 2 hours ahead of time. My plan is to go to work, leave and go back to work. My co worker who has had one said that I may not want to come back to work. I've only been there 4 months, I don't have alot of leave saved so I'm hoping I'll feel fine. I'll just be sitting at my desk anyway.
Oh well, that's what's going on with me. Just wanted to share it with you guys.
Wish me luck!!!!
