Yes, I am using the SCD as a basic guideline but am unable to follow it strictly due to insufficient time, funds, and energy...someday when things get a little better (do they?..).
They said either it is either/and because of a forming obstruction or ruptured ovarian cyst. The latter because of the amount of free floating fluid the CT scan showed in my abdomen.
In other news, they wanted to confirm this with an ultrasound so I went in and found out my insurance had reached the end of its term. It would have been nice to know this before I went in. Or you know, so I could have refilled my omeprazole as soon as possible.
The only who knew when this could happen was (surprise!!!) my dad. He knew I was in the ER too, but did not call. Yes, he is back in the states. No, things are not any different. Except that we communicate even less and he seems to care even less.
Should I be taken aback? I am a little, but I wonder too if I should have seen it coming. Is it so much to expect a 'hey how are you doing?' phone call?..
Yes, I know I am whining a lot, but even if he didn't call to ask how I was doing it would have been nice to know I didn't have insurance..
Wish me luck in everything else I suppose. I don't know what this next couple months will be like, but I am going to be optimistic.
