Embracing life with chronic pain and illnesses.

Posts tagged ‘ultrasound’


Underwent multiple ultrasounds today.  Due to the discomfort all ready throughout my abdomen……the ultrasounds were not a “comfortable” ordeal.  Technician was able to confirm that good images were taken….of course, as most of you all ready know….they really are not supposed to say anything else beyond that.

Felt quite sick once it was over…..had to just hang out for a while as I couldn’t even think of eating let alone getting in the car for the trip home.  Tummy settled enough to eat…..made it home to just lie down and relax.

Now time to wait for doctor appointment on Thursday where we will review the ultrasound results.  Also, will have a few more days of meds in system.

Positive note….I have been able to sleep the last 3 nights.  So that side effect of the meds is a good one.  Been well over a month since I could sleep for more than 3 hours.  Definitely good to get the chance to get some much needed rest!  Now to just get some more answers.

Appointments & Ultrasounds

I now see the colorectal specialist next Wed…..then the following Mon I will undergo several ultrasounds to get as many images of the abdominal area as possible. Then will have apt with my other specialist on Thurs….

Hoping this will result in some answers. Lot’s of questions right now…could this be scar tissue….any chance it is the mesh material….are the nerves just continuing to fire? With my body seems that anything is possible! From experience I know that the least likely scenario…or most rare/extreme option tends to have my name on it!

It is a challenge to continue taking the pain meds….just treating it like the new routine….must keep up on them until I can get through this next round of appointments and tests.
