Four Doctors, four different idea’s of what is wrong and how to fix it! Oh hello to all, draw a a chair and sit a while. I am going to try to reassure you that A) I am not totally off my rocker…yet. B) I love Ron enough to have a procedure done I don,t need and don’t want, just to reassure him. C) my health is slowly improving from my hospital stay.
Ya a lot to try to get into one post…maybe we will skip A. Takes a whole lot of writing for that one. LOL
Well the week before I was hospital Ron and the nurses I worked with were sure, positive I was having heart attacks. Ron knows that the younger you are when you have one the more likely you are to die. He was panicking, he was so afraid I was going to have a huge heart attack and die, leaving him alone. The nurses did not help as with their training they knew the symptoms, and they kept listening to my heart, chest, and lungs. They were pushing Ron to get me into the hospital….they did not try with me because they know how stubborn I can be and I just don’t listen.
So the upstart is I have hyperthyroidism and there is a small possibility I may have had an internal bleed. The funny thing is the Heart doctor was sure I had a heart problem, and put me through test after test after test trying to prove it. I even took the nuclear imaging of my heart after the echo and the other scans did not show any problems.
The internal Doctor is sure I have an internal bleed. He bases that on the H&H labs that say my red blood cells decrease…even though there was no sign of the blood exiting.
My primary Doctors P.A. saw the same labs and agreed with the other doctors that the thyroid labs are way off. But she says that the decrease in red blood cells is a symptom of the Hyperthyroid.
However…I have Ron. He looked up all the signs and symptoms of hyperthyroidism. He is sure I have both. And that means I had to make an appointment with a G.I. doctor and one with an endocrinologist.
Of course every nurse Ron spoke to and every doctor he has told has told him the many things that are going to change about me when I start treatment. All of which makes me really not want to be treated. Right now my red blood cells are coming back up and so I am starting to have more energy. I think I should just leave well enough alone. But I have been with Ron 22 years, so I know better than that.
