|My progress report!!|
About 6:30 that old familiar back pain resurfaced. There was no way of easing the pain. I even took some prescription strength pain meds. By 10 o'clock the pain had moved to my abdomen and I started throwing up. This is the first time I've actually thrown up - retching and all - since my surgery. This scared me because I was afraid it was my appendix. (I do watch Grey's Anatomy, ya know!!) So my DH loaded me up and took me the the local ER - or the band-aide station.
It didn't take long for them to see me. I guess a grown woman slumped over and puking in a bowl will get them moving a little faster. Once the doctor saw me he decided that blood work and a CT Scan would help diagnose my issues. He then gave me a shot of Demerol. (Which didn't even touch the pain.) After finally drinking the "Scan juice" and 2 more shots of Demerol I was scanned. While waiting for the scan to be read I was still in extreme pain. The doctor finally came in and told me all my blood work was normal but there was an abnormality on my scan. He very nonchalantly told me that I had a cyst on my right ovary and I needed to follow up with my OB/GYN. I was given another shot of Demerol, a prescription for Lorcets and sent on my way.
Well...about my OB/GYN...I had been to two in the past because we have never used birth control and have never been successful at getting pregnant. I was diagnosed with Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome in 2006 after a very painful test - I can't remember the name. But I was told that people have babies all the time with only one working ovary/fallopian tube. I was always told that if I lose weight we should be able to conceive. After numerous doctor visits we got disgruntled and stopped going to the OB/GYN. My doctor has been gone for over a year, so now I had to find a new OB/GYN.
After calling all over our area the nearest appointment we could find was in the middle of December so I decided to go my family doctor on Wednesday. The pain had subsided some but I was unable to lay down, stretch out, stand up straight, or even sleep in the bed. My family doctor was able to get me in to a OB/GYN the very next day.
