Just a quick post to let you know what has been happening. First off though, I wanted to say that due to our current financial situation, I will not be able to attend the First Annual Boobs get together! However, I do consider myself one of the club, so I am proudly showing the Boobs Decal on my blog. However, if anyone thinks that since I am not actually attending the get together, that I am not qualified to show the decal, let me know and I will remove it from my side bar. But I do feel like one of the Boobs in my Heart. I truly wish that I could have attended. I am holding out hope that I will be able to attend the next get together with ya'll.
We went up to Reno last Friday the 16th for my 5th Fill and it does appear to have given me some Restriction, at least for now. We shall see how long it lasts!! But at least I know what Restriction feels like!! So far I have slimmed nearly once every day! The most embarrassing one being at a local small family owned Mexican Restaurant!
I could feel it coming on, but I knew that a woman was in the only bathroom! I was waiting for her to exit the bathroom, hoping nothing would occur before. I was doing well, when all of a sudden I felt the urge to burp. We all know that burping usually helps and means that the food is either moving down or getting ready to come up.
Well, this time it was coming up!! I started to burp and realized that it was slime. It kind of spewed out and I caught it in my hand! Luckily, it wasn't a huge amount (yet). But I am positive that a man sitting across the Restaurant facing me saw it!! I was horrified that someone saw me expel the slime!! Luckily at that time, the woman came out of the bathroom and I spent the next 30 minutes in there slimming!! I almost didn't make it to my Surgeon Appointment!!
Remember I told you that my Doctor (OBGYN) wanted me to get a second opinion on the Lump she found in my Breast? Well, because of our financial problems at the moment, we figured that since the Mammogram and Ultrasound came back ok, we didn't need to go to the Surgeon as well. Well, my Doctor called wanting to talk about it, and when I didn't return her call, she sent me a letter requesting I come in for a recheck. So we decided to go ahead and go back in. She said that the Lump was still there and she really felt that we should get the second opinion to be sure as the Mammogram/Ultrasound doesn't always pick up Breast Cancer.
So we agreed, and went in to the Surgeon Monday the 19th. He said that he felt it wasn't a true Lump, but (and I am not sure what he said) he said it was something like hardened fat from where the bra lies tightly under the Breasts. Or something like that. But since I have dense, lumpy Breasts, he wants me to come in again in 5 months for a recheck and another Mammogram/Ultrasound 5 months from then. Walt figures that he will probably want to check me every 6 months since I have a family history of Breast Cancer. But at least he feels the "Lump" is nothing to worry about. Whew!
Our next Doctor Appointment is for Walt on the 30th. Remember that I told you he was having some problems? Well, I never actually told you what was going on with him. Mainly because I wanted to wait until he felt ok with it being put out here in cyberspace, where any and all could see!
He has been having problems for some time (like years), but for a long time, we thought it was me! What has been happening is, when we make love, we found Blood. We assumed it was me for the longest time. It has been going on for several years (at least 2-3). At first it was just a small amount of blood, and not every time, so we weren't too concerned.
But lately, it has been happening every time we made love and the amount has been substantial (we even put a towel down on the bed to protect the sheets, and take the towel with us when we travel). We finally determined that the blood was in his Semen and only in his Semen, not in the Urine. He has been to the Doctor several times for it and the Doctor didn't think it was anything to be concerned with at first. But since it has continued and has gotten worse, our PCP decided to send him to a Urologist. The Urologist did some testing on Walt's blood and of course, every time that he goes in, they do a Urine test. There is NEVER any blood in the Urine! It is just in the Semen.
So the Urologist has had Walt on a Medication that was supposed to cause the bleeding to stop. But it hasn't and the Urologist said that he has never seen it continue after using this drug (especially after taking it for several months)!! He wanted to do a CT Scan, but the Insurance Company refused to approve it, saying there wasn't sufficient evidence that warranted the CT Scan! So he had Walt continue using the Drug, to no avail.
Now he has decided to send Walt to a Specialist in San Francisco. He figures that if the Specialist says the next step should be a CT Scan, then the Insurance can't turn it down! So we will be going to San Francisco on Friday the 30th. My biggest fear is that it could be Prostate Cancer, but Walt is under the impression that it isn't anything to worry about, but should be checked. Hopefully we will find out soon, I am definitely concerned but trying not to think the worst! Has anyone out there had this experience with their significant others?
Well, now that I have put everything out here that we are or have been concerned with, I guess I will go for now. Till next time...
Aloha My Friends :)
