I was thinking last night that it's nothing but now...I am awake and scared half to death. My stomach is in knots and is starting to hurt because of nerves.
i have to really start chugging water around 1:15pm and not go to the bathroom...my appointment is at 2:45 and I have to be there at 2:30.
THANKFULLY my husband is going to be going wtih me and that eases some of the nerves but still scared shitless and really really nervous. Don't even know if I'll even be able to eat because of my nerves.
I have to go in to get an ultrasound done because the doctor felt that my left side of my pelvis is fuller than the right. and then also he ahd called and told me that my white blood cell count is high....so yea don't know what in the world is going on with me....
its common for white blood cell count to be high if your fighting an infection/virus. The ultra sound will be over pretty quick, and hubby will be wth you. Those are all good things. After you get to go to the bathroom, I bet youll eb mighty hungry!!!
you're so lucky to have such a loving, caring husband. when i had that done (and other even painful procedures), i had to go it alone. just take deep cleansing breaths and hold your husband's hand and try to push negative thoughts from your mind and you will be all right. good luck
CW keep your chin up and all that jazz. I hope things go well but keep in mind you may not get an answer today so don't get too worked up. It's just a test to see if they can determine what is going on and may have to be sent back to the doctor who will have to look at it and see if he can determine what is going on. I wish you a speedy discovery though.
Craz - hoping all goes well. I know it's so easy to panic. You're in good hands and all being well, you'll just have an infection or similar. Good luck - and keep us informed. You'll be fine, no matter what!
I'm thinking about you, too. I'll bet it's just some sort of infection. Just to calm you down, I just went through He** with problematic mammograms. I was convinced I had cancer... After a ridiculous amount of ultrasounds, more mammography and a biopsy all is well. In medicine, they need to cast a wide net to catch anything, which of course sends off our alarm bells. Just remember, many people have similar stories and all turned out well. Not to mention, you're young. Let us know what happened (if you're so inclined) when you get home. Hugs to you!!!
the reason why i ask is because it may not be as bad as you think, if they haven't tested you completely yet to weigh the options. not trying to make light of your situation as i know it's serious. however, lets not assume the worse before the doctor says anything.
I know why this scares me so much..it's the simply fact that I am adopted and I don't know my egg donor or sperm donor nor do I ever want to...but I also don't know medical information about the two...so that is one big factor as to why I'm freaked out today over a simple test..
I can understand not having a familial medical history makes this a little more scary. I think that's natural. The good news about today is you will get the ultrsound results immediately instead of having to go back home and stew... That's nice, b/c there's nothing worse than waiting for test results.
Normally the sonographer talks to the radiologist. Either the sonographer or the radiologist will come into the room to tell you the results. I've NEVER had to wait for it to filter through my primary care physician.
I go through cancer tests every 3 months since I had it back in 2007. It's scary I know. See everything as coming back fine and feel the relief that you would feel if the DR told you that. My Daddy used to say not to worry about something until you had a reason to. I know that's easier said than done, but you gotta try. Heck, I practice answering the phone and hearing the nurse say everything is fine. And think about all the prayers and healing energy you are getting.
Hi Sabreblade, I am praying that your cancer stays in remission. Three week ago a dear friend of mine was diagnosed with lung cancer, fortunately it was diiscovered in time. She is at home recovering and going to her chemotherapy treatments. Keep a positive attitude and keep visualizing the nurse telling you the good news!
Hi! I don't really know you, but found this, and I just wanted to let you know I'm thinking about you and praying for you. Medical tests are scary, but many times, they are all for nothing. Take a BIG breath, and don't worry! Let us know how it goes!
oh i see. im sorry to hear that. well maybe you should do something to take your mind off of this. it's probably just the stress getting to you. why don't you try reading a book or watching tv for a bit to take your mind off things.
I hate that... I had to do that a few times during pregnancy-along with the dont eat after midnight cause you gotta have tests done the next morning... Telling a pregnant chick not to pee or not to eat for an extended period of time... Yeah right! BUT YOU CAN DO IT- Just dont think about waterfalls or dripping faucets
I'm really scared and I need a consult, but I can't afford an online one and it's kind of personal. To be more specific I think I may have sepsis. Is there anyone I can message directly that is a doctor that can give me...
When the March Q&A Contest was announced and there was mention of daily drawings for hubs, I had the idea that it was the perfect time to try out the HubChallenge with the added bonus of using Questions to inspire...
...but not too hard. Seems there's plenty already on it, and I'd hate to be the one who causes the hubs to snap off. (Sorry, bad pun, but hell, I just couldn't resist.)So, since I'm assuming that this is the...
