Saw the nurse practitioner and it wasn't pretty. She suggested putting me in the hospital for pain control. I didn't go for it. She suggested more strongly. Then went and got me a script for a different pain med with the warning that I ought to just go to the hospital anyway and if this didn't work there wasn't going to be a choice.
Sigh. Don't they understand that I have a job, a family, a life? A job that is not amused that I am not there and have no sick leave...a job that thinks I am skivving work for a birthday vacation? No.
Have to call back and make a colonoscopy appointment for as soon as possible. The power went out as I was getting my script. Soooooo...that is the update.
Bizarre thing: I was sure I had GAINED 10-15 lbs since the last appointment because I can't hardly button my pants. Nope, lost 12 since the June appointment. So the buttoning thing is all distended owie stomach.
