The pain got so bad yesterday, I decided I couldn't wait till Friday to
see the surgeon. I drove myself to the urgent care clinic where they
said either get someone to take you to the hospital or they would call
911 to get me there. I had a driend drive me. At first they thought I
had a bowel obstruction, but I didn't. The pain was so bad, it hurt no
matter where the Dr. touched. They couldn't find anything wrong,
except that I possibly had an infection. The lab results were not
conclusive. They gave me the option of staying or leaving. My husband
has been out of work for 3 months, so naturally I wanted to go home.
Only problem is they gave me 3 prescriptions to get filled and when we
went to the pharmacy, we were told our insurance had been cancelled. We
called the insurance co and they did not know why my insurance had been
cancelled but it had and they couldn't do any thing about it till today.
Finally after many calls today, we are reinstated and I got my medicine.
I'm still really hurting, but not as bad as yesterday. I see the
surgeon tomorrow. I'm worried that he will discount the adhesions and
blame all my pain on the infection. But this pain is different from my
adhesion pain. It is in the same spot, but instead of the gripping,
pulling, tugging pain, it is a sharp, burning, searing pain. Having a
bowel movement is excruciating. Time for more vicodyn and back to bed.
