Okay, everyone. I had the CT scan yesterday. The results came back as only showing gall stones. Seriously!? Are you telling me that my back pain for FOUR YEARS is being caused by gall stones? And there's been no change in my pain in four years, and it's just gall stones!?
I mean fine, if I have gall stones, fine. But don't blow me off saying that's what is causing pain for four years, because I'm not buying it. I have an appointment scheduled to see a general surgeon next Friday, 10/10. I won't know until I see him if I need to have surgery.
They said they really saw no adhesions or anything else on the CT scan. At this point I'm completely non-plussed. And I don't know what else to do.
On the bright side of things, (I guess) is that the Lyrica does seem to be helping the pain. I upped my dosage as of this morning to be 150mg twice a day, which is what the Nurse Practitioner told me to do.
I guess I should be happy they found no tumors or weird growths or anything. But I feel like my NP has already written me off now that it's gallstones.
I guess I should just calm down, have my surgeon appointment and just continue to take it one step at a time. My husband was relieved of course.
This CT scan has put us past our deductible period at least, so now the insurance will cover 80%, I think. So I guess if I need surgery it would be good to do it before renewal.
