Hi everyone. I've been gone a while . so I had my appointment with my surgeon and my general practice doctor . both appointment ment we'll. Thr surgeon appointment went very good. Like a breath of fresh air. She was up best and positive. Surgery is in prices of being scheduled. She did not make me.feel like a horrible person. She was kind with addressing the issue of my other pain. And telling me she wants to work close with my general dr to endure um getting the proper care before surgery.
My general practice doctor us great. Is is very causoius but informative. He feels I have lupus . his exact words are I have inactive lupus and fibromyalgia with chronic fatigue . he listed a few medication that I could be in but he is sending me to rheumatologist to help confirm his findings. So its still like I'm in a limbo state. Surgeon gave me loratsb to help with abdomen pain and I have found it helps with some of the other pain too. So I'm happy to have that to help but I'm still not where i want to be. I want to have a set defiant plan. Butbim trying to be patient.

I'm glad to hear things went so well. The rheumatologist generally does more extensive tests so it's a good thing you'll see them before treatment starts. I hope the surgery goes well with a quick recovery. You'll be in my prayers. 🙏🌼

I am so glad for you that your surgeon is so Upbeat and positive. Also that he listened to you and that your gp is taking good care of you and sending you on to a rheumatologist to confirm his diagnosis. I pray that your surgery goes smoothly and you heal quickly and completely. Best of luck to you. 🙏🏻🌻
