Anxiety is kicking me in the butt literally

Jan 07, 2016 8:19 AM

Morning all,
Getting ready to go upstairs in about 45 minutes or so and battle that fear at the surgeons office. I swear I spend more time there then I do at home at this point. Didn't bother to take a pain pill cause it won't do any good prior to. Just going to wait until I get home and tough it out for now. Thankfully might have a break tomorrow during the day unless something else happens. Sigh already!!!!

Hang in there, Amanda.. We're all going to put positive thoughts on it and you'll be ok. I'll be with you throughout your appointment and I promise I won't make guy laugh too hard that you get told to stay still.. LOL!!! (Got your napkins?😉) I know that you're going to do great. We're all here for you. Sending lots of love, gentle {{Hugs}} and prayers that this is taken care of quickly and that you don't end up with any more of them. 💕🙏🏻🌻

And I'm fixing to go home, take a half of a Vicodin and see if it will settle down for me.

Flappys sorry couldn't respond earlier. Got an appointment with the ID specialist on Monday afternoon. Looks like we are headed towards more IV antibiotics. Will know more Monday. Getting ready to power down tablet. Will be back on Saturday morning.

Flappys, I suspect that there needs to be a serious conversation between my surgeon and the infectious disease specialist already. I have been back and forth between the two of them so much that I hate going into either office already. Mostly because they both mean pain is about to be inflicted. I'm going to speak my mind and hopefully won't loose my cool in the process. I'm also going to strongly advocate for a PICC line. I can't tolerate being stuck 3-4 times every time they need to get a line in me. Going to turn in for the night. I suspect an ovarian cyst is beginning to make its presence felt now on the right side. Going to touch base with the gyn on Monday just to be sure.
