Boo, freaking hoo

Apr 09, 2015 12:51 PM

Well, went back to the surgeon this morning, because guess what, the belly pain has come back with a freaking vengeance(llq). So, he said he's baffled as to why it's happening and that scares me. I have to come back next week to have an appointment with the other surgeon in that practice next Wednesday. I feel like screaming at the top of my lungs, "fix it already dam it." I've had enough. So I guess one more week of waiting won't hurt anything. Just needed to seriously vent. At the end of my rope.

Amanda I hate that for yo. I hope they can resolve this with you. Be praying for you.

Weezie, I'm actually feeling pretty peaceful at the moment. I discovered it's okay to ask for help if the problem isn't readily apparent.

That's good Amanda.

Amanda,I'm praying for you, that the docs will figure it out soon! At the moment my memory is defunct, but do you have kids and/or have you had previous abdominal (low) surgery? If so maybe they can do an MRI with dye to check for pelvic congestion syndrome. Praying you get relief soon! 🌼

AmAmanda I'm prying for you and vent on vent on that's what we're hear for any time any day I'm hear

Good Things your way Amanda and praying changes are in the air

FlappysLady, the only low abdominal surgery I've had was to have my tubes tied when I was 24 and that's it. Right now, just have to wait for the other surgeon as my gyn seems to think the pain is bowel related. But, it's okay. I have faith.

Well I'll keep praying that you find out and its easily treated. 🙏🌼

Thanks much. Getting ready to call it a night already. Work calls tomorrow morning.

Amanda, you are in my thoughts and prayers... I want you to know that when I get that frazzled, I usually come here, vent and then close off the computer (or whatever device will let me in the app that day) and put a pillow over my face and scream profanity at the top of my lungs... It helps!!! (They ran a scientific study that said if you are really upset, out of sorts or in pain and you use profanity loudly, it helps for some reason... Now, I'm certainly not saying we need to all become potty mouths.... Just thought I would throw that bit of info out there for everyone.

I've screamed into pillows before too. Even without swearing, it works to relieve pressure!

I actually ended up doing that as soon as I came home from the eye doctor. Another diagnosis: keratoconus(moderate/severe L eye, mild/moderate R eye). L eye is fixable but only by transplant.

Oh Amanda, I'm sorry.... I know how hard it is when you go to doctors because you keep having new issues and then you get these horrible diagnosis. I pray that you will be able to get the help you need for this and that your sight will not be effected and you will be able to carry on with better results. You will be in my prayers.

Amanda I am so sorry that you are facing something new. I too have screamed into a pillow, or have even gone outside and screamed body murder. Luckily we live in the country.

Weezie, this is semi-new to me. Just waiting for the eye doc to call my mom back now but it's taking forever for them to do so. I slept for crap last night, so I'm really irritable, sleepy and just in a completey funky kind of mood. And it's raining so that doesn't help with the pain issues. Alwayz, the left eye is so bad that I really do need the transplant at this point to have better quality of vision and life. The right eye is also affected but not as badly as the left. When my mom got here last night, I immediately just started balling my eyes out cause I didn't know what to do with all that information.
