Feeling a little disappointed and frustrated with my doctors visit today. Maybe I had all of my hopes resting on it, I don’t know. It’s likely impacted. She wants me to do an enema to clear out the “plug” in the bottom half and then have another of my favourite drinks to clear out the top…good times. The problem is, it’s medication induced and she basically said, it’s just going to keep on happening if I don’t go off some of my meds…the ones that finally stabilized everything for me as far as the face pain!! So, I don’t know what my other doc will say about that. Also, I don’t see him for about 6-8weeks. Which means, if her “clearing it out” solution is ineffective, I have to keep feeling like this. Or it will at least come back, and it won’t take very long! I was expecting her to run some tests, maybe an ultrasound to see if there’s some other kind of problem. I’m going to try calling Dr Hauptman’s office tomorrow to see if he can maybe see me earlier. Because he’d talked about a colonoscopy and other tests, so hopefully he’ll move things forward and not just agree with me that yep, it’s just going to keep on happening. You’d think that I would learn by now, not to put all of my trust and hope on one appointment!! So I think this little rant is it for today. I’m tired and have a headache tonight. I’d just like to go lie down.
