It’s a Lot More Complicated

3 Apr

My head is clearer today; the nausea and urge to vomit has passed but pain has kicked in. The O&G doctor came and explained my problem to me yesterday and it’s a lot more complicated than originally thought. The nurses’ earlier feedback was off.

There was a case of Endometriosis (the initial suspected problem) but mild on the right and a tiny Cyst on the left. And there was another problem on the right side as well, a bigger problem. Dang. So convoluted! It’s around my appendix area, the old surgery that I did when I was 17 years old. Early dinosaur era.

Apparently the Gastroenterologist whom I saw for my Infectious Colitis diagnosis had to be called in. And in very basic terms, he had to clean out that messy appendix area! Things were stuck, bunched up and yucky.

My goodness. I am such a complicated one. Even the doctors were baffled with the scenario, a problem on the right that’s causing so much pain on the left. I hope to see both doctors later today to understand again this what this mess was

So stayed the night at the hospital to be observed to ensure a speedy recovery. Although all vital signs are good, an early discharge is only upon the doctor’s approval. We shall see.
