MayFrog Posted November 12, 2004 Share Posted November 12, 2004 I knew there was a reason I never went to the doctor.....they always find something wrong with you! Up until this year, the only time I visited a doctor (except when I was having my children) was on an emergency room basis. In April, I was diagnosed with SCLC, and went thru my chemo visits and scans, etc., etc. When all that was said and done, I finally got a PCP and figured, hey why not? Let's go have a physical! Well, it seems like I'm falling apart piece by piece! After my 1st visit with my new PCP; she called and told me I was borderline anemic (not too surprising following the chemo) and also that my cholesterol level was sky high.....prescribed Lipitor. If that wasn't enough, my kidney function has been progressively getting worse since chemo, so I'm scheduled for a kidney ultrasound for tomorrow! Then, she scheduled an eye exam......no big deal, right?....hmmmmmppph.....I have a hole in my left retina and have to see a specialist Dec 1st; might need laser surgery! Oh, I almost forgot....this week I was dx'd with a very bad bronchitis (never had that in my life), and am on antibiotics. I'm at the point where I'm afraid if I drive by my clinic, some doc is gonna come running out saying "WAIT!!!!.....we've found something ELSE wrong with you!" OK......I'm done ranting......forgive me......just hadda vent Love you guys, Mary Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
