Yesterday I had my annual beg the PCM for referrals and prescription renewals appointments. I told the good and wise man that I was having pain with my orgasms. He stated that I could not still be having endometriosis and that he called the surgeon's office that did my procedure, talked to an LPN there, and she said it couldn't be. I bed to differ. He disagreed again. He said I have no organs to trigger an attack. I have no uterus to cause the bleeding and no ovaries to stimulate a flare up.
According to an article I just read on endometriosis even men can get the disease. As far as I know men don't have a uterus or ovaries! I detest a know-it-all doctor that really doesn't want to listen.
So when my referral comes in to see a doctor for my endometriosis I'm going to try to get the one I want in Atlanta. I realize it is out of network and I'll have to pay out of pocket. If they help alleviate my pain it will be worth it.
Other things I found out at the doctor appointment, rather I kind of knew this but it took my good wise man of a doctor months to figure out, I'm a high risk for congestive heart failure. Mom recently tested positive for protein in her urine. They put her on meds for it. I tested positive twice during my pregnancy for protein in my urine. Dad died of congestive heart failure after having numerous attacks of it. My legs are always swollen. The doctor finally increased my dosage of Lasix. Hopefully in a few days the swelling will go down. I've been able to keep my blood pressure under control with my meds, diet and exercise. It was 128/60 yesterday.
I've been here for 17 months and my good wise doctor finally realized after all my asthma attacks I might need more than just nasonex and my asthma inhaler. He put me on Zyrtec. Yes, I can breathe at night! One night of no coughing up strings of mucus. Yes I know gross but well that is life.
Eily now has 12 teeth. The thought of mucus and Zyrtec trigger the teeth memory. She is on Zyrtec and drools all the time with the teething. She cut 5 teeth last week. The last of the front top teeth popped through and all 4 of the 1 year old molars came through together. Time to celebrate with her favorite steak J told me...Ribeye. J and Eily do love Ribeye.
