A New Day
Yesterday I had to go for testing due to severe tummy pains. I checked in at 11:00 AM and waited and waited and waited. At 2:30 I called my doctor only to find out that she had already called once and faxed the order to have me seen immediately. So I lay there until 4:00 and I finally went upstairs to her office to see if she couldn't come down and expedite things. Of course she already left for the day. However, her office still sent me directly to radiology (which should have been done at 2:00). No more gallstones...YAH!!!!! But I do have a fat liver. So I have to go back in this morning to find out what they are going to do about it. The hospital finally discharged me at 9:40 last night. They wanted me to stay until 4:00AM because they were going to give me morphine and sodium chloride but didn't think it wise to keep me just one more day...makes ya scratch your head doesn't it? So after the long ordeal yesterday I was finally able to come home and go to bed and begin today. So far no other noticiable side effects. They are thinking that my tummy pain is caused by my meds perhaps making my liver fat. If that is indeed the case then we may have to switch them up :( Post more when I know!
