Finally got my bone scan and ct of my pelvic region and abdominal. They found an abstruction in my right kidney. My wonderful ins co requires that I have to go back to my reg Dr to get a referral to go back to my uroligist to talk about the tests he ordered for me to discuss my now kidney prob. Glad it is not any thing serious lol. The uroligist did not sound very positive over the phone. He said that my bones look ok. I guess that is a positive I guess.

Common Man,

Seeing so many specialists as we here seem to do,
   it might be nice to see the referring physicain every once in awhile.... :-)

And you might get to spend some more quality time on the phone with
  those chatty insurance folks, too. :-)

I took my shepherds out to the springs yesterday - it changed my mood tremendously!
Take some time for yourself between visits to those physicians and
  - keep us posted!

Warm Regards,
