After yesterday's appointment, I fully expected a nurse to call me. Well, no phone call just a message in my patient voice mailbox. The message gave me my updated beta and progesterone numbers, but didn't say anything about the urinalysis. No biggie, right? Like I said yesterday, no news is good new. Of course I couldn't leave well enough alone.
I called the nurse messaging center this morning and left a message regarding yesterday's urine sample. Also, I had quite a day with my stomach yesterday. TMI Warning.....I pooped like 6 or 7 times yesterday. I have IBS. Over the years, I've learned what foods to stay away from and how to avoid episodes like yesterday's. Well I didn't really eat anything to set me off, so I'm guessing it was stress related? Or maybe it's my hormones because I usually have episodes around the time AF comes to visit each month. Who knows??? Anyway, I asked the nurse if I could take Immod.ium to help with my stomach issues. My message from earlier today was the my urinalysis was "all clear" and take the Immod.ium "per instructions".
So, let's recap this week with Dr. L's office:
- Sunday - call nurse on call for spotting and cramping
- Monday - go in for bloodwork and urinalysis
- Tuesday - call and leave a message for my nurse
