CT scan results are in

And I was quite worried, because the tech last night told me they'd go to my doc fast if there was a problem, by Thursday if there wasn't. However, the scan was normal, which presumably means I have all the appropriate organs in the appropriate places, unlike Her Majesty's brother, and the nurse at my doctor's office managed to convey that I am either imaginative or exaggerative, as there is nothing wrong with me.

So. There will not be a repeat of the trudging from doctor to lab ad nauseam that there was four years ago, and I merely have MS and possibly gas.

I can live with that.

Better to know. And all nurses convey that, because you are preventing them from doing their all important whatever-it-is they would rather be doing and WOULD be doing if you weren't bothering them.

I've gotten that even while sitting in my own blood. Don't take it personally.

Seriously, you know if something's really wrong with you. I can always tell, because I get all "I am FINE. Fine! I have NO INTEREST in Medical shows. Everyone's tongue swells up and turns black!" I there is something wrong, you'll get sick enough at some point that the receptionist will diagnose you. There's just that annoying delay while you become obvious.

(Oh, and I was going to say gas before, but it seemed very insensitive.)

I'm glad it turned out to be nothing but, um, wind.

I've given up going to the doctor. Despite my insistence that I have a brain tumor, that my foot is about to fall off my ankle, that I am dying, my body relentlessly enjoys rude good health.

One thing that's brought me into line is looking up stuff on Google pics. No, I don't have an ingrown toenail - that picture of a guy with an exploded tomato at the end of his foot - now that's an ingrown toenail.

Becs, Sherri will tell you that ingrown toenails are a good thing. She in-grows hers on purpose!

Sherri, I don't take it personally, honest--it's actually amusing, in an eye-rolling sort of way.

Your Majesty, you didn't suggest gas not because it was insensitive but because you are a convert to the Church of It's Your GallBladder. *grin*

Glad things didn't show up. :)

Might be a good idea to look into the OTC goodie called Phazyme, if you don't already have it decorating your medicine chest.

Bitter angry nurse said...

Sherrie said, "I've gotten that even while sitting in my own blood."

She was likely wondering if she should clue you in on proper tampon insertion or not.
