So, I mentioned in my last post I’ve had an UTI. Its still not gone. 😵 Its been very painful, and Thursday it got real bad. It was hurting bad by the area near my belly button while I was at work. I told my mom and she was concerned it could be my appendix. So, I told the manager my mom wanted to take me to the ER, so I got out early. We went right after.
It was such an long ordeal. We probably left around 11 am. Didn’t leave till around 6 pm. 😵
They did a few tests. The usual blood work, urine sample. Also put an IV in and gave me some injections to help with the pain and nausea I was feeling. Oh, and they had me get X-Rays too. The results were supposed to take like 45 minutes, but we waiting more like two hours. Finally the doctor came to talk to us. He said there was a lot of blood in my urine. He wanted me to have a CAT scan to make sure there wasn’t any kidney stones.
So, back to waiting for the test. Finally they took me to get that done (got to ride a wheel chair!) After that, more waiting but in a private room. I was given a drip in my IV of antibiotics. The doctor came to talk to us again. No kidney stones, its apparently a really bad infection, that my medicine I was taking was not getting rid of. So, they were prescribing me another kind. They were waiting on my regular doctor to get on the phone so he could decide which one he wanted. He’s so horrible to get a hold of, so it was a long wait again. Finally, they got a hold of him. Also, got a note for work. My mom had asked if I should be working so the doctor gave a note for me to be off till Tuesday. Finally, we went home!
But at least we found out what was going on and its not something real bad. Though still hurts a lot. I’ve been mostly laying down and sleeping. I’m glad I have these days off, I think I needed them. Being on my feet all day at work doesn’t help this at all. Just gotta take this new medicine and try to drink more to get rid of this thing. I just want it gone!
