The GPS kept asking us to do u-turns....even when we actually arrived at our destination!
The trip was worth it! All tests show that my back/side pain is no longer to do with my kidneys and is not internal in any way. This means I can cancel two specialist appointments and no more tests. Instead I am going to go back to my physiotherapist because even thought the xrays showed no new fractures in my back, there is definitely something going on there.
Similarly for my throat, it is not cancer and is not a flap of tissue that needs surgery. It is a combination of previous scar tissue and drainage from my sinuses. I already have an appointment with my ENT in September so we leave it there and I just continue on eating what I can and adding supplements.
My breathing test was 50/50 good and bad, but I will deal with it with my Respireologist next week. Mostly it is good, but we need to keep it that way.
The best part of all was when she told me I got a wonderful review from the people at the pain clinic. They said that I was really eager to learn and put things into practice and even under hard conditions I went in positively. This means a lot but even more when my doctor seemed so proud telling me this. We have been together for 31 years (I was one of her first patients on her first day in practice) and have seen the good the bad and the ugly together.
I am still in pain and still uncomfortable with my throat but it is much easier to take without the unknown!
