Stupid Stomach...
Posted by tim in I Feel Sick on March 6, 2010

It's been a long while since I've posted any new content, and that's because I've been incredibly busy with work, church, and a wonderful girlfriend. I really wish I could take the time to post more about those, but I just wanted to take a quick moment to let everyone know that I'm finally going to see a doctor about this stomach stuff.

Last August, my doctor gave me a referral to a gastroenterologist, but I had been in a bit of a roller coaster situation with it: When it was bad, I would think "I need to call that doctor." But when it was good, I didn't even consider it.

Well, last night when I was leaving the office, I barely made it to my car before one of the "attacks" hit, and I had to make a mad dash back to the office. I was able to make it home before the next wave of it hit, but just barely.

After I had exhausted myself (in a couple different senses of the word), I found the referral that my doctor had given me and finally scheduled an appointment with the GI doctor.

I have a full blood panel coming up in a couple of weeks, which is just to mainly check on my cholesterol and such, but I opted for the full panel because I want to be able to rule out any other issues.

Beyond that, I have an appointment with the GI doctor on April 1st, at which point I hope to get a lot more answers than what I currently have, and get on the road to treatment.

If I get some time over the next few weeks, I'll post some more updates about the rest of what's going on in life. Until then, this is what you get. :P

Did they amputate the foot yet?
