Well, as I mentioned last time I had some more doctor appointments.
The ‘lady’ one I saw gave me some antibiotics since I did indeed have yet another UTI. They seemed to help quite a bit.
My regular one mentioned how one of the tests I had done some time ago showed that the walls of my bladder were inflamed. I forget what he said it could be, but something to do with that.
I also saw another. They gave me some low dose antibiotics to try to prevent the infections. And they’re going to send some kinda scope in my bladder to poke around in December. Ugh…not looking forward to that. Hope they can find the problem though…
On the plus I’m feeling a lot better. I’m not going nearly as much. Still hurts a bit though. Sometimes get the pain in my side, but it usually fades and isn’t nearly as bad as it was. So, I think the antibiotics have helped. Hopefully, after that one appointment they’ll find the issue and I can resolve it.
But least I’m feeling a bit better.
Well, time to actually post. 😅
Mostly stuff has been the usual boring stuff. Work, and stuff like that.
Halloween I didn’t do much (but I don’t really these days anyway). I just dress up for work. As usual I was a ferret. 😆 Sorry, no pictures! I didn’t take any.
In not so great news, I posed about an UTI infection I had that was real bad (lasted like a month). Well, after like a week it came back. So, constantly using the potty, and getting pain down there. Then, all of a sudden it went to my side. Just a little pain at first, then it moved to most of it and a little under my chest. It hurts really bad sometimes.
I did go see a ‘lady’ doctor for this. She said after my check up (which hurt real bad, since I’m tender there. I nearly cried), that the sides of my bladder are swollen and I do have UTI again. She said I should see this other doctor, which I have an appointment with on Friday. Got one with my regular doctor Wednesday too. Hopefully someone can figure out what’s with this. This isn’t normal, I’ve never had it like this. I’ve had UTI’s before, but nothing like this. Its been like two months, and I’m sick of being in pain, and I can hardly sleep (since I take many potty trips during the night). Hopefully there will be a solution soon. I can’t take much more of this.
Well, that’s pretty much it.
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!
