Are we there yet?

Tuesday, January 10, 2012

So, so far this year:

The truck died! Casey is relying on friends to and from work and luckily my parents live not too far away so they can take me to doctors appointments and to the store.

My arthritis has been acting up in a big way. My knees are causing me pain and now my lower back is killing me. It is the same pain as when I had the herniated disk a few years back.

Now on the plus side, since my family doctor (who I have been seeing since I was a teenager) left the practice and now we have this young guy (I swear he looks all of 12) taking over for him... I will give it to this young guy, he has some new ideas for my health issues so he is slowly changing up my meds so that it isn't going to be as expensive has it has been. My gyno told me I need to get my mammogram done... not looking forward to that...and she is checking my testosterone levels. emoticon I feel like I am being prodded and poked again. So hopefully now with all the new stuff in the medical community they will be able to find out for sure what my problems are and how to fix them!

I am also worried about D. She is now starting to have pain when her time of the month comes along. So I am worried she has the same issue with endometriosis as I did and I do not want her going through the same issues that I did. So I am going to set up an appointment for her. The doctor told me today that if she is showing signs that the best thing to put her on is birth control pills. emoticon

Could be worse!

    Knowing to actually consider endometriosis is a huge help. The average time and number of doctors is 10 years and 7 doctors (before an actual diagnosis of endo).

    Not many doctors (even gynecologists) are actually knowledgeable about endo. For example, birth control pills can worsen the problem.

    Sending lots of healthy thoughts to you and D!! emoticon emoticon
