Man, I've had an awful time with these ovarian masses... pain... puking... feel so tired (dunno if its from that or the medicine that's suppose to help me stop puking...)... My OBGYN... the one I had such a hard time finding in the first place is retiring... I thought he had scheduled surgery for me at a hospital for September 26th... but as it turns out that's just another appointment with an OBGYN... So I'm going to have to suffer...
Then, I went to my rheumatologist, says she might be close to figuring out what's going on with my joints... She was really worried about
my current state of health, though... weak, dehydrated, tired, pained... So she sent me to the hospital next door...
I spent more than 8 hours in the waiting room... then when they saw me... they said my records they got from another hospital didn't show ovarian masses on my right ovary... it showed a left ovarian cyst... I insisted on otherwise.... because why would the other hospital tell me wrong? They gave me some anti-nausea and some pain medicine through an IV... which was nice.... drank some CT juice... And lo and behold!
I have ovarian masses on my right ovary! What a surprise!!
And what happens next?
'Okay, we're going to send you home, now.'
The hospital doesn't have an OBGYN department... they refuse to transfer me to a facility that does... I beg, I plead... they call security... *I wasn't being violent, just stubborn... I wanted something done about
those masses so badly* I don't get home until 10:00 the next morning because I can't drive and have no transportation or money...
//-_-\\'... I got to say it was one of the worst days in my life and it made me rather depressed... I had also requested a Ca 125... a blood check for ovarian cancer... because that's what my old OBGYN wanted to check me for... But they didn't do that, either...
And apparently... ovarian cancer runs in my family... Luckily, though, it usually only happens in older women... so there's a pretty good chance I don't have it...
Just took out the stuff about
self injurious behavior. ((((Celery)))) No personal offense intended.
You know we care and we want to help you.
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.
