Abdominal Pain

EJ took this photo of me while waiting for my turn
to have my CT scan procedure.
(Tuesday at Radiology Department of The Medical City)

Hello fellow bloggers and stalkers! Oh I've missed blogging. I have a lot of drafts waiting to be finished and published. But I'll share for now where I've been recently.

I had a myoma 3 years ago and thought it was gone after being treated but I felt a lump growing in my tummy again. Last Friday night, there was abdominal pain so I went to see my Ob-Gyne at The Medical City Ortigas the next morning. My Ob-Gyne scolded me for not seeing her for 3 years!

Well, I never wanted to be in hospitals because the antiseptic scent makes me feel sick and people who come and go and aren't very well, make me feel nauseated too, no offense. Worse, I faint at the sight of blood and needles.

After going through pap smear and pelvic exam, my doctor recommended me to have blood test done and abdomen CT scan.

Oh dear! This is what I mostly avoid, blood extraction! I warned the female staff that I might faint when she sticks the needle to my arm but she comforted me that it'll just be quick and all I need to do is... relax.

Yeah right! I didn't want to see the needle and blood so I closed my eyes and took a deep breath. I felt the prick but I survived. Hurray!

So that's done. Then I went to make appointment for an abdomen CT scan. Tuesday afternoon was the best suited schedule for me so I booked myself.

Tuesday morning, I had heavy breakfast because I was told to fast for 5 hours before my scheduled CT scan. I went to pick EJ up from La Salle and arranged for the school bus to drop off his school bag at my house. I was glad my son was there for me, who kept me happy and entertained with his silly jokes. We even joked about who is skinnier between us after I found out that I weighed 47 kilograms only. Doctor said I wasn't under weight so it is okay. But my son and I noticed that my hands and arms are bonier than his. Yet I've always scolded him to eat some more because he is too skinny and people migt think I don't feed him enough. Well, my mother always scold me each time she visits that I don't eat enough.

Before the CT scan, a young intern talked to me and advised me of possible allergic reactions after IV dye contrast is injected through my vein. I never had allergic reaction to any medication before so I was confident that I should be fine.

I'm tired now so to be continued tomorrow... maybe.
