I went back to the girlie dr today, after being called last week to be told that i had to come in and get my test results, so i have been stressing like crazy since last wednesday thinking i had deadly girlie part cancer or something. I mean, come on, with my medcial history what else could it be???
Anyway, turns out its just a basic infection, sort of like a yeast infection only with a much longer name, lol. Had to come in to get a script., now why they couldnt tell me that over the phone, i dont know.
Anyway, the dr asks me if i am familar with flagyl, and i said, uh yeah i had UC for 8 years i know all about that nasty stuff.
he laughed and said well you just take one really high dose and its stays in your system. So i asked if it was an extended release pill because i cant take those. And he says, no it just stays in yoru system a long time. And i say, well i have an ostomy is that going to be a problem. And he looks very shocked, and i can see his eyes scanning all over me, looking for hte bag, lol. And he says, where is it? In disbelief. And i said, well its an ileosostomy and touched the area where it is. He said he wasnt sure how that would work and i said, well my transit tiem is about an hour and that i usually cut my pills, and he is like no no you dont want to cut flaygly and i said no i know that. so anyway i got a cream
BUt i mean it just never fails to amaze me how, one noone can tell, evena dr, and also how even medical professionals know so little about ostomies and such. And its not that they are stupid, its just that they dont deal with them on a regular basis and they dont learn abotu them either.
he was so cute, looking me over and over like that, not believing it was there, lol.
UC for 8 years, before finally kicking its butt and having a permanent ileostomy April 17 2007!
-I have gone to find myself, if i get back before i return, keep me here-
