Nervous as he!! May have a tumor

Aug 30, 2017 7:01 PM

So as you guys know from my post last week that my gynecologist wanted to talk to me about my bloodwork. Well my thyroid level was a little high but he said he will let my primary doctor continued to handle it. Now here is the bad news, my prolactin level was high and I have to get a MRI done on my head to make sure I don't have a tumor on my pituitary gland. And today I had an appointment with my primary doctor and I told the nurse about how I have to get an MRI on my head. Well she told my doctor so when she came into the room she said see you cancelled the MRI I had you scheduled for because you did you thought you didn't need it. So I yelled out the door tattle teller at the nurse. And my doctor said sometimes God shows you what you need and you just gotta listen. It was good to joke about the MRI cause that took some of my nervousness away. And we joked about how the first reading on my blood pressure was saying it was high. I made them retake it because I said I'm not getting into trouble today so the did and it was normal. That's why I love my doctor and her nurse, I can joke with them just make things a little less serious. And my doctor is making sure I don't have any pain till I get with pain management. She told me if you run out call me and you can come get your prescription. And my gynecologist said he can handle my pain management too after he gets my other records from my gynecologist. I'm having a procedure done Friday and I'm worried about the pain afterwards because he already prescribed the pain medication and it's take 2 7.5 mg of Percocet every 8 hrs. So that makes me think I might be in bad pain. Just keep me in prayers please. Didn't mean to write so much but I needed to vent.

Thank you everyone, I'm really glad that an app that I was looking for to keep track of my symptoms. I got so much more, and that's all of you. I was told to join a support group by several doctors and family members and friends. But I couldn't see myself going somewhere to group meetings. Especially when I'm in pain everyday and I have gained so much weight. But God still gave me what I needed and it's this support group. Because I thought his would be a great app to keep track of my health issues, I had no idea that when I clicked the community....BOOM! I didn't go out to a support group, God sent me my support group. And I can't express how grateful I am to have each and every last one of you. You guys have been there thru all my health problems to not having health insurance to finally getting health insurance to now hoping the healthcare I'm getting will bring me some relief. There are not enough words for me to say "THANK YOU"!

Thinking of you as you get ready for procedure. My dad had a pituitary tumor several years ago. It ended up shrinking. They had kept tabs on it until it just disappeared. I hope you don't have this but if so, my prayers are that it resolves itself.
