Another Health Update

Ok...I had another ultrasound on the 8th. My cyst is completely gone! That's the good news. The bad news is I'm still having cramping all the time. I'm not sure why. I did see a GI doctor this week. He was awesome. If anyone is looking for a good one in Salt Lake let me know. I'll send you his way. He gave me some medication to "relax" my bowels. He said that can happen when you get too stressed out. And he wants me to have a colonoscopy based on some family history. So I have that scheduled for the 25th of this month. I'm not worried about the procedure just the prep. I've heard that's the absolute worst part. Actually what's worse is the night of the 24th we have a big event planned at the school. I might have to find a replacement for me that night. I still had the ultrasound results faxed over to the oncologist. I'm not sure where she will go from here. She did mention that she would still want to take a "peek" inside to look for endomitriosis and to see if the uterine lining had grown into the uterine muscle. But I don't think that has happend. So that's the low down for now. I'll just keep plugging away until I get some answers.

Thank you to all who have called, texted, emailed, etc. for updates. It really means a lot to me.

I am so glad about the news. I have to tell you that I just read the comment you left me about my cell phone. I laughed out loud - you make me laugh all the time, thanks. I love you!

so glad that the cyst is gone! Hope that you get to feeling better soon! The prep is the worst part for the colonoscopy. I would most definately find a replacement for that night and plan on spending the night in the bathroom with a good book. That is what I had to do! Love you!
