Some answers.....but not all

Mar 11, 2014 - 7 comments

So I had my OBGYN appointment today. Didn't get as many answers as I had hoped. That is mainly because when my doctor faxed the referral to the OBGYN, she didn't mention ANYTHING about the night sweats, hot flashes etc...So I had to call my doctor's office and get them to send another referral to the OBGYN asking her to discuss and treat them. I was a little disappointed that I couldn't get the ball rolling on that. But like she said, she can't diagnose something that she wasn't referred about. Makes sense, but still irritating.

I do have the ball rolling on the other issue. She says I have lots of inflammation "down there". Not sure why my doctor never said anything or caught this. So I have a prescription for a super duper canesten. So I have to treat it for 2 months and then go back to see her and see if there's any change. If there's no change, then I have to go on a heavy duty steroid. I'd like to avoid that route if possible.

So i'm not 100% happy, but I suppose it's a start. *shrug*

I'm sorry you didn't get to address all of the issues you wanted.  That is frustrating.  I do, however, hope that the diagnosis and rx you did get help out at least that issue.  I don't blame you for not wanting to go on the steroids.  Saying a prayer for you sweetie that this starts you down the recovery path!:)

Thanks j. I guess going down the recovery path, we take one step at a time. A lot like an addict.

I'll get there. Looks like it just might take more time then I hoped

I really hope you don't have to go on steroids either. They are brutal and really did some damage to me when I was on then the 13 weeks of this pregnancy and the other IVF attempts.  Hopefully this medication does the trick and you start to feel much better soon!

Strange you see a dr and you have symptoms but because your Dr didn't put it on paper she has to ignore them? Sounds crazy! Maybe they are all connected?!!! That stinks, I hope all goes well sweetie!

Did she at least set up a follow-up appointment to discuss the other issues?

Ellen - That's what I'm afraid of.

Nic - No not trying for another one. I've been having painful intercourse since the birth of my second son. So I saw my family Dr for it then she referred me to the OBGYN.

Mel - It's hard to say whether they're connected or not. I still say they're premenopausal symptoms (or something of that nature). Hugs

Heather - I'm going to call the OB's office to see if she wants to set up a follow up appointment for this. I'm not sure if she'll just wait till my next appt with her in may or not. I think she was also waiting for my family doctor to send the referral to her. She's not usually very quick about doing that
