Last week, in the midst of popping pills and resting in bed, I was excited to think that I might not have to drop Chem after all. With an extra week (Spring Break) off I could probably get caught up on some things with the extra time.
And then came Monday. And I was back in a lot of pain. I was actually in so much pain I couldn't go to sleep the whole night. Advil barely touched it, but I was able to avoid another ER visit, mainly because I knew I had an appointment with my doctor yesterday.
I was so glad I had this appointment scheduled because the pain wasn't going back down for very long. My normal (hot) doctor wasn't there, so I was a little nervous about this new doctor, but honestly, she came in knowing her shit and was so nice. She talked at length with me about everything that had been going on. After doing the abdominal exam and talking with me, she told me the radiologist requested in his report that I get a blood pregnancy test done. She also wanted to run some tests to make sure there wasn't a bladder infection of some type going on. The blood test will come back today and the bladder results should be in tomorrow. Pending both of these results, she said she will decide where to go from there.
I've also been told I am not allowed to take anything other than Tylenol until the blood test results come in. This really makes me a little annoyed because I have been in extreme pain and if I am pregnant, one more day of pain meds isn't exactly going to prevent any damage I've already done.
I stopped to have lunch with a girlfriend on my way home, but I had to cut it short because the pain was taking my breath away. The drive home SUCKED. By the time I got home, I was shaking I was in so much pain. I called NYEBoy and told him I was laying down and he rushed home from work, but I some how managed to pass out before he got home. I woke up a little after 3 this morning, and I'm still in quite a bit of pain. I'm still having the constant dull ache, but the random shooting pains stop me every time. I'll go from having them several times in a few minutes, to none for 30 mins or an hour, and then they get frequent again.
I'm pretty much OVER this body of mine. Clearly we're not getting along.
Seeing as it's already Wednesday and I'm in just as much pain as I was at the beginning of last week, I've decided I'm going to just continue with my plans of dropping Chem (and Chem Lab) and focusing on Trig, Precal, and German. I'm trying to remind myself it is whats best and its OK, but it's still hard.
Here's to hoping for a resolution soon. I'm going on 11 days of pain and I've pretty much had ENOUGH.
