Not Your Happy Hour Cocktail.....


Tomorrow is the radio active cocktail....... I have mixed emotions.......... part of me wants to go and the other part of me wants to call and cancel.......... No one can make this decision for me.............. I am reading all about this condition and it is an easy fix with the proper diet........ I can do that.. Do I really want to eat food with just a tad bit of radioactive material in it? Do I really?

I will keep you updated.............

UPDATE

Well, girls I so appreciate your input here and I am headed to Norman tomorrow to follow through with the test........ I have had so many tests in the past three years one more will not hurt... I spoke to the hospital today and the young man was so nice........ One of you asked if it was contained in a capsule........ no..... it is mixed with some food......Very very little is used and the body does not absorbed it..... it passes through the body.... It takes about three hours while the food passes from my stomach into the intestines......... joy joy.......... So, off I go one more time and get this done.............

Otherwise things here are good and all is well ...... Mom is doing good on the pain medicine and that seems to be doing the job........... The shop is so busy and I am out there most of the day and have gotten behind in my blogging but I hope to catch up this weekend..........

Love you gals and here is a hug for each of you.........

Of course only you can decide.
A couple of times I have had medical procedures planned and had a bad feeling about them and canceled. Twice the same gynacologist scheduled historectomies. The first time I got a second opinion. You see this doctor had a history of doing more of these procedures than seemed nessecary. The second time he scheduled it for indometriosis and I had the date to report to the hospital. But he didn't do a biopsy and I felt uneasy about it so I canceled. For the record, I have all of my equipment to this day. Later, I had a biopsy and found out I didn't have endometriosis afterall.
When I enjured my back, the orthopedic doctor that my regular doctor sent me to wanted to do surgery without even looking at the MRI. I had to ask him to look at it. When I told him, I wanted to try alternatives before I scheduled surgery, he said then I didn't need him. I had therapy instead. I still have problems with my back but my Dad had two surgeries and still had problems so I'm happy with my decision.
I told you all of this to say, go with your feelings after praying for guidance.
love you,
Mama Bear

Denise. I am so sorry that I have not been following your health problems...Let me know what they find out!! i have been having problems keeping all of the blogs read that i want too..it is just too hard for some reason lately..Dont know why!!
I have had chronic pain for many years now and well i have found that I am going to have to live with it..you know a diagnosis would be great but I am not getting that either..I am so hoping that you do!!

If it does not hurt...and has no adverse effects...why not?
I am glad that they can so easily find out what is wrong with you.
I did have a procedure kind of like this when I was having such bad headaches. They injected the die and followed it through to make sure there were no blockages. I had another when I started having stomach pains....they were trying to see if I had some type of blockage in my kidney.
Other than the time for the test...it was cool.

Waiting to hear good things!:)

Hi Sis, I had my MRI with contrast this morning, I know it so often seams that the tests are worse than the illness. I can see your concern with the radio active. Is it not contained withing the capsule?
Do you not need to use great caution being around the elderly and infants?
My bother in law had radio active stuff for cancer of the thyroid but it is a whole different thing.
It your not sure do some research tonight on line. Look into the test and the diagnostic condition. see if the test is consistent with common protocol.

I am a firm believe on "gut instincts" I always tell people "That's God's way of telling me yea or nay" you know your self better then any one, besides God, just pray about it and God will give you an answer, and always remember he's going to take care of you, he's lead you there, if this is what he want's and he's going to see you through it...I know you already knew this. Just PRAY, PRAY, PRAY about it. and I too will pray that God will give you the guidance for an answer.
Hugs to you
Annette

Dear Denise, Trust in your instincts, I believe they were given to you for a reason. Pray. Then decide. God bless.

JC said...

Just get er done. You need to find out for sure if there is a blockage. If there is something, could be done about it, if not then you will have to do what you need to do to take care of yourself. I've gotten a little behind in reading. My computer got a virus but I got her some anti-virus stuff and she is all better now.

Sandi McBride said...

I don't know Denise, I'm such a wimp when it comes to doing these things and then I give in and do what the Doctor says...so I'm probably not the one to ask...but I will do this for you...I will pray that GOD makes the choice...then it has to be right, right?
hugs
Sandi

I wish I had some advice to pass along. I would be dreading it like crazy too. It would be nice to know the results. I'll help you along with the rest of the girls pray about it. Waiting to hear what you decide and how it goes.

Mary said...

Denise,

Thinking of you, my friend and praying that all will go well tomorrow. God will be right alongside you. I've had radioactive injections for a test. It didn't effect me at all. You will be fine. I hope they are able to find out what exactly is causing the problem.

Praying for a safe journey and wisdom for your doctor.

Blessings,
Mary

The things we have to go through to get a few answers! I think you are making the right choice, otherwise you would always wonder...good luck with your test, I'll be thinking about you and whispering a little prayer for peace while you are waiting ~

Edge of Design said...

No advice, just prayer. I'll be praying for you today my friend.

Hootin' Anni said...

Denise, you'll be in my thoughts. I'm glad to hear that you are going through with the tests. For me, personally, it would be the 'unknown' that would take me in the direction you chose...My best to you dear friend.
