Hayley, You must be really proud of yourself for finishing the test. Isn't it always the way when you want something to happen at a crucial time and it doesn't. So very annoying. I am sure you are very relieved it is over What did it show or do you have to wait for the results. Now you can get a decent nights sleep and something to eat. You should treat yourself to something nice.
I have been soaking the black beans today and will fix them shortly and have a little rice with them.
I haven't had nausea since Monday thank goodness but I had to contend with 2 days of it. Since then I have been pretty good but I am always sort of waiting for it if you know what I mean.
Off to fix the black beans for my dinner. We will talk again soon.
Hi Lily, I am excited for you making your own beans. They are so healthy and taste yummy when they are made without all those processed ingredients. I am glad you haven't had that awful nausea to deal with too! Things are looking up :)
As for me I am not proud of myself per se but just relieved I pushed through the pain and finished the test. Otherwise I would be forever guessing what if.
Results are in already but I wasn't expecting them so soon because when we dropped off the equipment this afternoon with the doctor he said he would go through the data and call me sometime beginning of next week. Well imagine my surprise when my phone rang at 5:30 and it was the doctor.
To make a long story short (too late LOL) my results are basically normal. I reflux about
3% of the time and those reflux events don't mesh with when I pushed the button to heartburn or chest pain symptoms. He said that's called functional heartburn.
The only reading that *might* have been abnormal was on the Manometry I think it was the LES number and the reading was 17 and normal is up to 16 or something like that. I'm not sure what that means but he said he really thinks it is a normal variant since I don't get food stuck in my throat usually and that's what that number would signify (just during the 24 hour impedance today LOL).
I have to call Monday to ask his secretary to send me a copy of my results because he spoke too fast on the phone and I could tell he was in a hurry. It was friday at 5:30 so I understand and it was very nice he did it before the weekend so I could have my results. I didn't ask him to rush doing it but it was nice to get the results so fast.
So I am happy about
that but I am still in discomfort with burning and chest squeezing so yet another round of tests with no diagnosis. Don't get me wrong I don't want anything to be wrong of course but what is going on with me? I have been through such a multitude of tests-MRIs, CAT scan, chest x-ray, 2 endoscopies, these 2 tests I just had, a round of blood tests, echocardiogram and so on and so forth. I think I need a break from doctors for a good long while and will just deal with my symptoms as best I can unless they become worse or I have no choice.
I'm still here for you guys though!
