Just checking in. I posted a great deal of information last week so I'll keep this short. Pain is/was much better today (until I helped my step-father find a computer mouse and leaned a little too far). Anyway, I received a really strange blood result from the Endocrinologist today. It turns out my HGH (Human Growth Hormone) has jumped to somewhere in the 180's. This was my goal and we thought that it would take over a year to get there. My initial was a 91 and the next was a 97 so this was totally unexpected. I have a follow-up next week and hope to have positive news then. It's no wonder that I've had so much swelling and other changes in the last few weeks. This explains a lot!!
On another note, I got my referral to a good Reumy today. She only comes to the area once a month for 1/2 day and I'll have to wait until June to get in, but she is the only one (other than a real mess of a Dr about
an hour from here). This is really good news since I've needed this referral for so long and have never been able to get one because of the lack of Dr's. I'm excited about
having a specialist in an another are of real need!!
Best to you all!
