Tomorrow morning I get to have a contrast-aided MRI of my brain. To check up on my pituitary gland. I've had MRI's before, but I have never had to go all the way into the machine. I am not terrified, but I am nervous. Plus I get the added joy of an IV so they can put dye into me. Maybe I'll pee blue for the next week. I dunno. Sorry, a bit of gallows humor.
I am worried about what the results will be. Or maybe I should say I'm worried the results will not show a "simple fix". (In my opinion there is NOTHING simple about a body that is not functioning properly). I'm worried that it won't show anything and we will have to continue to chase down the cause of the problem and it's potential solution.
On the other hand, I'm cautiously optimistic that what I know so far, will be the explanation for the endless fatigue and gray emotions and inability to tolerate cold and a whole host of other things.
To make matters worse, I really screwed up my bad foot (the one that I had the stress fracture on). I went to a different foot doc this time. He said he agreed with first docs diagnosis, but he said I needed PT in the worst way. So I get to add that to my plate starting Thursday.
I still miss my cat. I had an opportunity to "meet" a new one but I decided I am not ready.
