A few days ago I went to the radiology department for an internal sonogram, my OB has been wanting me to get one since I had Judah but we wanted to get my root canal fixed first. The radiology tech was going to check my ovaries and make sure my c section scar healed up correctly. When I first entered the room I let the tech know that I am seeing my OB on Thursday and asked if I could have my test results by then. She said that they probably won't be in because they take over a week to process. She said my Cesarean scar is perfect and in a few years it will fade away even more. But when she checked my right ovary she voiced her concern, it looks abnormal and I might have ovarian cancer but quickly said she can't really tell me anything, my OB has to see me and talk to me herself. She then said that my OB will definitely contact me before Thursday about my results. Then she left the room to get a second opinion and all I am thinking is "she said my OB won't have my results by Thursday, how can this be that she is getting them sooner, am I really sick". I took a picture of my scans with my iPhone so I could try to research it on my own later.
After I left my appointment I found Scott and Judah playing in the Kaiser courtyard. I told Scott the news and my brain was going in a million different directions. I don't think ovarian cancer runs in my family, although my grandmother did pass away from some sort of stomach thing. I just don't know the medical details of my family history. I kept asking Scott "wouldn't have this shown up in my blood work already, why didn't it show up". I showed Scott my picture of my scans and I tried to google the information. Lesson learned, don't ever google medical information, it will only freak you out more.
Yesterday I didn't have any appointments. I just hung out at home and waited for an email or phone call. I distracted myself by planting lots and lots of flowers in our backyard with Judah.
Today Scott and Judah joined me when I saw my OB. She sat me down and said everything is okay. That I don't have ovarian cancer (thanks Kaiser tech for freaking me out) and that I just have a cyst that should go away soon, thats what has been causing my ovarian pain. She is going to run a few more tests but she said that she hopes that I come back in just a few short months with "happy news". When I asked her what she meant and she said "Oh it would be nice to see you pregnant again". I laughed and said she sounded like my husband. Although it would be nice to have a baby with a Spring birthday.
I have one more Dr's appointment tomorrow where they are going to do a sonogram of my stomach. My primary just wanted to double check that my stomach is okay, she has gotten most of my test results back and she believes I have an ulcer. I've been taking ulcer medication for the past two weeks and have already seen a difference in stomach pain (not as much) especially on days when I skip the coffee or any other acidic foods. If it is just an ulcer, it should clear up in two months if I am consistent with my medication.
After tomorrows visit we can just focus on happier things. Like not getting naked in front of strangers, going to Myrtle Beach, Virginia Beach and going with Scott to San Francisco in June while he attends the WWDC conference and maybe...just maybe...make another baby. Judah does need a little sister or brother and honestly I really do miss Judah being so tiny.
