Frustrated but hopeful

I hope everyone had a nice Easter. We did. My sis decided to start a new tradition and she had brunch. This way everyone could come over and still go other places if need be. So we went there for brunch which was great! The kids were cute as always! I just love them so much! Then we went to MIL for dinner. This time it was GREAT because it was just my DH and I. So we had a very nice dinner and conversation without all the BS from everyone else in his family. My SIL is about to have her baby any minute so I was glad that she was not there so I did not have to deal with it this time.

Tomorrow I am going to a different Pain Specialist and they are suppose to give me some other shot that is suppose to work with the shot I had last week. I am feeling a little better but not a lot. So hopefully after tomorrow I will feel completely better.

I got a call from my OB and now she says my ultrasound was fine and that I should maybe have a laproscopy done since I have had the ectopics and to check for endo. I went to pick up my records in case I need them for my short term and in them there was the ultrasound report which states. Unable to diagnose due to unclear pictures of uterus and ovaries. They did detect a cyst but could not tell what exactly it was and that they recommend a laproscopy. WTF? Why 3 different stories? Why was I not told this to begin with? I tried to call my RE to see if I could see him this week but he is of course out on vacation. So if my shots don't work tomorrow then I will be seeing him soon to talk about the laproscopy. If they do work then I will wait for a bit but I am still going to see about the laproscopy. I am planning on the shots working and going back to work next week.

This whole thing has been very frustrating and I just want it to be over and get back to a normal pain free (or I will take mostly pain free) life.

Wish me luck tomorrow.

It sounds like you had a lovely Easter!!

Wtf are they doing with your u/s?? Ugh, at least it's in your hands and you can call your RE to help you.

Wishing you luck tomorrow!! :)

How frustrating! I can't believe how difficult it is to get good medical care. The doctors seem just too busy to sit down, focus on the patient, and get things right. Grumble. Good luck!

That does sound incredibly frustrating - why can't they figure out what the right diagnosis is? It makes it really hard to trust any of them when they all tell you something different. I hope your RE can have a look and figure out what is going on. Pain sucks and I am hoping that these treatments begin to help you feel better. Good luck!
