No worries, Cave. Yes, I have been checked for clots. Just last month I was hospitalized with pain in my chest after my gall bladder surgery and it was a pocket of blood in my liver which they drained.
I did see my doctor today, and she is running a new set of blood tests regarding my anemia and infection. She is also very concerned about the water retention and has increased my diuretic for one week just to see what happens. If it gets worse in that time, or no better after, then I have to go back for more tests.
As for the coughing, yes, I do have bronchitis and was having a reaction to the anti-biotic the clinic put me on. I am now on Amoxicillin and rest for 7 days. She wants me to do light exercise so my chronic pain stays in check, but no pool until my lungs clear up.
I am very tired tonight after the two-hour travel time and almost an hour in the doctor's office waiting. Plus I had to go out to get my prescription and some food I can eat while TB went to work. I think it is curl up with the furbabies time and early to bed.
I am getting so sick and tired of being sick and tired. I am glad I have my hat orders and a re-wedding to plan!
