I went to see a doctor in my regular practice today. It took forever! Basically she decided that since I hadn't had any more pain that if I started having another bad time that, we'd have a plan of action. If I can tell it isn't an IBS situation, then I'm to come get a (Sorry, TMI!) stool collection kit and see if there is anything going on intestinally to be causing this.
See I had another situation very similar to this 2 years ago, and it was inconclusive then as well! So I really don't want to have to go through all this for a third time, ya know?
I'm fine with them not sending me for more tests, etc. yet. Tests cost money! At least if it starts up again now I have something I can take for pain while trying to figure out what the deal is.
Thanks for reading if you did! Honestly, I'm always worried that people are gonna think I'm some kind of hypochondriac or exaggerating....Chris can vouch for the fact that I'm not. Looking back, he was really upset the other day. He paced the floor like a caged animal! He's afraid that it is attacks of my appendix and that eventually it is gonna have to come out, and he may be right. But even while I was in the ER, I was telling him,"I'm sorry honey, I promise I'm not making this up!" and he was reassuring me that he KNEW that I was in lots of pain! I'd much rather go through childbirth again than to deal with that kind of pain!
Well, I'm soon off to get ready for the Nutcracker! Have a great weekend, all!
