I just realized that somewhere a post was lost I wanted to revisit it, those who have been reading awhile may remember that over the 4th of July weekend I had to visit a walk-in clinic due to some swelling in one of my thighs and I wanted to make sure it wasn't a blood clot, long story short the doctor says she believed it was an insect bite it didn't have the feel of a clot. Fast forward 2+ weeks and it's still there so I make a visit to my primary doctor who immediately says it's not an insect bite he thinks it may be a clot. Um excuse me WTF. He said that I needed to get an ultrasound done on my leg so they scheduled me an appointment for the next day(Thursday). So for the remainder of Wednesday I was a paranoid fool (no one knew though) thinking that when I go to sleep this clot is going to dislodge and go to my lungs, rationally I told myself that I've had for 2 weeks what's one more nite, but the cuckoo in me was still scared.
Bottom line is I got the ultrasound and it is definitely not a clot "Thank you Jesus", but now I am left with the obvious "what the hell is it", my doctor wants me to go and see a vascular specialist but I haven't been able to get an appointment prior to Aug 9th. My next appointment with my surgeon is on the 12th and I really wanted to have this resolved by then, but it seems like when I was calling around the docs were going on vacay...so I'm gonna try a couple more tomorrow.
I must say this has been the a frustrating process, I love the blogworld I've become a part of and I can't wait to get to the next step, and the thing is although I have been heavy for most of my adult life, I have been relatively healthy, prior to last year I had never spent the nite in the hospital except for when I gave birth to my son. Well now I'm like a smorgasbord of medical issues, but I am grateful to have the insurance and what I need to get it done, even though all this different opinions can make you batty. I know my time is coming and I can't wait. The good news is I spent time with an ex this weekend and he has offered to pay for a gym membership for me, it is very hard for me to accept things for people but I think I will let him know tomorrow that I accept his offer...
Well I'm going to end this now I have some more stuff to talk about but you guys are going to have to watch your blogroll with baited breath but I need to go to bed because my alarm will be going off in just a little over 3 hours...gonna started Monday off crazy!
Love you guys and thanks for the support! Excuse any typos...whew look at the time!
