~*~

the next time i need an mri, they had better do what they promised and sedate me. they don't and there's no guarantees that it will work out even half as well as today -- hanging on by a thread doesn't work for me.

anyway...so, yea, mri this morning. when i scheduled this sucker and the woman asked if i was claustrophobic, and i said yes, she clearly said sedation. what she didn't tell me was that i needed to contact my doctor and get something from him to take before the scan. so, i didn't find that out until i got to the appointment and was getting ready to get in the damn machine. fortunately, it was feet first and i managed to find ways to get through it. she did have to get me out once before i clawed my way out, and then again a second time to put in some dye for contrast. she also kept me informed of how much longer i had, which i think helped. after i was done, i waited a few, and she came out and gave me a cd to give to my doctor. all in all, i managed, but no way am i putting my head in one of those things without being knocked out. :P

i was pretty exhausted when we got back. with my schedule all weirded out, i'm pretty much up all night, get youngest off to summer school, then i sleep. i couldn't do that today, so when we got home, i pretty much passed out. after i ate, since i wasn't allowed to eat anything before the test. i got up in time for my evening doctor's appointment, scheduled yesterday because the b.c. hasn't controlled the bleeding and i've been on it for 2 weeks.

wonderfully enough, the tech had already sent the mri report to my doctor, so he had it when i came in. everything on the mri showed as normal -- no polyps, fibroids, or anything else to be concerned about. and, the endometrial lining is thinner than it was for the ultrasound.

so on to the next step: a d&c. he'd also like to try for another test (the name escapes me at the moment), but he doubts, with all the bleeding, it will be possible. tomorrow i go in for pre-op stuffs, thursday i have the d&c. because he'd like to attempt the other test, more than likely i'll go under a general, which i seriously do not mind. i've not been able to sleep well since this whole thing started, so any help to sleep for longer than an hour or two is okay by me. i'll be gone most of the day thursday and probably need someone keeping an eye on me when i get home.

the doctor also wants me to stay on the birth control. the hope is that, once the excess is cleared, the birth control will keep it from every getting like this again. here's hoping.

the scheduling of the d&c means saxy's out of work for 2 more days and the car diagnostic has to be canceled. i feel bad that my health crap is making it even harder on us, but, as saxy noted, this has to be taken care of. i can't live this way. i spend 90% of my time in bed because sitting up makes the bleeding harder. and i can't get my work or writing done because i don't own a laptop. i can't exercise until it's not going to be a problem to do so, and right now it's a problem. it's bad enough sitting/standing up. i get active and it gets worse. i can imagine what exercise would do. *shudder*

one other bit of good news in all this: the heart meds are working. my blood pressure was way down. hopefully getting the bleeding taken care of will take any extra strain off my body as well, and i'll start feeling better.

and i sooooo want to feel better.
