I got a gastro appt for the 15th of Oct... phew. (that's better than the Dec 3rd appt
I was looking at before!)
My regular dr's nurse spoke with me on the phone for a while, I told her all my symptoms,
and she said she'd call around and try to get me something. 20min later, she called back with
that appt... which is in a building next door to my regular dr! Hooray for pro-active nurses!
My abdominal pain has improved a little bit... but that's mostly because I'm not
really EATING. I bought some baby food sweet potatoes and pears and I'm mixing
it with baby rice cereal... REALLY. I also bought some pear juice which I'm diluting
2/3 with water. I had some canned pears too. I didn't have much diarreah all day
although I still had general GUT pain. Not severe... but pain. So then tonight I
was hungry for something SOLID... I ate a boiled & skinned (real) sweet potato...
and I've been paying for it for the last hour or so. Sigh.
I have a regular dr's appt on Tuesday... she is going to take more blood since my
liver function was off last time (and she also has to do a pap, yuck). Maybe the
stool sample I gave them will be back at that point too. That'd be helpful. I'll ask
her what she wants me to do until my appt on the 15th (which'll only be 6 days
away at that point).
