Now THERE'S a euphemism.
I had a Hepatobiliary Scan with CCK.
It wasn't horrific, but definitely didn't make the list of my top five ways to spend an afternoon.
My sweet husband stayed with me the whole time, which I really appreciated. He was a good distraction, especially for the bad parts.
The needle wasn't in the vein properly when the tech started the CCK - boy, howdy, that burned like a mf in hell. He had to shut that down and start on the other arm.
And the part in that article where it said, "it will recreate the symptoms" but don't worry - they can bite my ample, dimpled white a$$.
Got my new sphygmomanometer today - it's PURPLE!!!! lol - YAY! My husband insists on calling it a 'smegmometer' - is there any question why I LOVE this man? He's such a goof. :) I learnt him how to take BP today and he's feeling quite proud of hisself.
The bad news is that after almost a week on the new BP meds - my BP was 220/86 tonight at its highest.
Honestly, not much scares the Roobster, but I'm pretty disturbed. Yes, I will be talking to the doc again tomorrow. It's just so weird - my pressure has always been normal until a couple of months ago - so what is going on and how do we fix it before Roob strokes out? I hate feeling out of control.
Oh, but I was down two more pounds this week.
btw, if you offer to pray for me, I'll kick you in your tenders.
