MY "WOOHOO" UPDATE!
Friday, August 06, 2010
I went to the GYN yesterday to have my little test! He catherized (I hope this is spelled correctly, I seem to have lost my medical dictionary) me and took the specimen to the lab for analyzing! While I was there I had to weigh in and I haven't been since last year when I had my annual check up. Next month would be a year since I had seen him! He immediately noticed my weight loss! He said "April you have lost 20 pounds since the last time I saw you!" It is so nice when they notice this without telling them! I had not checked lately so I guess I will put this on my tracker! I measured when I got home and I have lost an inch around my hips also! So I was enjoying this visit really well! They took my blood pressure and it was 120/80 and he kept smiling at me!
He liked to have killed me (just kidding)! Have you ever been catherized (?)? It's not real bad though! He said, " The specimen looked good and he thought it was clear and would be letting me know if there was any problem left there!" I told him about how I loved to
! I told him I had not been to the pool in a week and half! He said "Well I think you need to get back in the pool as soon as possible! If this has helped you lose 20 pounds you need to jump in as soon as possible!" I
tears of relief right there!! He asked "What is wrong with you??? I said "Dr. I have been so scared that this might be the reason I am having this problem with UTI's! He said "Most definately, not! He said "If this was the case I would be having yeast infections also, and I was all clear from that and looked like I had been taking good care of myself!" (My Hero!)
According to him my infections were resistant to the medication they were using! They were clearing up but leaving some of the bacteria there and it would just come right back! He told me not to worry about it that he seen it all the time in females! He said he wanted to see how I did this month and the next time this happened I needed to get over there immediately so he could check and see what kind of culture he was dealing with as this time he had been going out of town and couldn't check !
NEEDLESS TO SAY I AM HEADED TO MY FAVORITE STOMPING GROUND TOMORROW AND I'LL LET YOU GUESS WHERE THAT IS AT, AND YES I AM SHOUTING!!!!
