So, I had my diagnostic mammogram and ultrasound Monday. They had to take extra pics of the rt breast, the one with the lump, it hurt for a couple of days after. Absolutely nothing showed up on either one...they even had the radiologist come in and try to find it...she could feel it, but, it did not show up!! I'm waiting to hear from the doc...it bothers me that a lump the size of a pea doesn't show up!!! Maybe, it depends on what the lump consists of...so...waiting...again.
Saw Endo today. He didn't laugh at me, just tried to explain away my symptoms and my checklist...when I mentioned Sjogren's, he said "that is very rare." I said, "but, not nonexistent." I immediately thought of all the people on MH that have been diagnosed with it, he did offer me fibromyalgia...guess that one is not so rare!?!? The visit was not a total loss, he had the nurse draw blood for a freeT3 & T4...YAY!!!!!!!!!!! When I was looking for an Endo, I found him and another one, a woman. I couldn't get in to see the woman until July 22nd, so I made that appt and made one with him, too...so, here is my thinking...if the FT3 & FT4 come back off, I will keep my appt with the female doc and dump him...if they come back fine, then I'll cancel my appt with the female doc...Hope I'm making sense, feel all discumbobulated this a.m. I should get the results in a week! Seeing the dentist tomorrow to start work on my getting a partial to replace all the teeth that I have lost to dry mouth...you know from that rare disease called Sjogren's! It is so hot and muggy here on the outskirts of Chicago...I hate the heat...give me some nice Indian Summer weather or even fall! I thank God every single day for air conditioning!
