    Re: Pelvic pain causing my current panic

    LONG ONE!! I had a gallbladder ultrasound done today because of the previously mentioned right rib and back pain. Tests just send me into a tizzy!! Iím getting a lot done all at once so maybe I shouldíve spread them out for the sake of my health anxiety? Iím still waiting for results of the Pap smear and now a gallbladder ultrasound. Iím worried that itís my liver or kidneys causing me pain and discomfort and of course my anxiety makes me think itís from the c word spreading from my pelvis to my liver and kidneys I asked the technician if everything looked ok and all he said was ďwell Iím not calling to get you a hospital room readyĒ and ďthe doctor will get the report by tonight.Ē Of course I know they canít say but I have analyzed that last statement to death. I didnít dare look at the screen while he was doing it. I was too scared that I would see something. My most feared test got scheduled the furthest date out. I go for my ultrasound of the pelvis on 09/26. Thatís where all my pain originated so Iím fearful of what they will find there. Iím still taking the antibiotics for the BV and it seemed to help the uterine pain some. I still have ovary pain, however, as well as the right rib and back pain. I have had a CT a few days ago. A ct of the abdomen and pelvis which showed a small uterine fibroid, degenerative disc disease at L5-S1 and diverticulosis. Other than that, the study was unremarkable. I keep trying to reassure myself that something ominous wouldíve probably shown up on the CT and not to be scared of the ultrasound but that would be too easy! Iím a nurse people and I still canít rationalize with myself on these tests. The pain is for sure there and real. Thatís why my anxiety is high.

    Re: Pelvic pain causing my current panic

    Just to update my thread for anyone with this long list of odd complaints...

    Ultrasound of the gallbladder showed gallstones with no wall thickening. Liver, pancreas, and spleen unremarkable. Thank you Jesus!

    Appointment with the surgeon in the morning about removing my gallbladder. He called today and said even people with no wall thickening and no elevated WBC can have the symptoms I am having and feel much better after removal. I am having low grade temp at the moment and my blood pressure is slightly elevated (I am assuming from pain and worry). He said I have had a good work up and he is confident the pain is coming from my gallbladder.

    Now i have the vaginal ultrasound next Friday to evaluate my ovaries and uterus. After that, I will feel much better. That will be the last testing. I have figured out that testing and waiting for results causes my HA to kick into overdrive
    but I am BEYOND excited that testing cleared my liver, pancreas, spleen and appendix. I had some darks moments and thoughts about all of them I hope all of you are well today.

    Re: Pelvic pain causing my current panic

    Met with the surgeon yesterday. If I can keep my symptoms of gallstones controlled with diet and the discomfort to a minimum, I will wait until I get home to have the surgery. (We are 15 hours from home working in the Permian basin bc of the oil boom). We should be headed back home in about 3 weeks and will stay around 2 weeks.

    Idk if I should credit my anxiety with it or what but I will feel better being home and not on the road during surgery. The surgeon and staff were friendly and Iím sure are very competent but being in health care I am rather particular about who I will go to. I know the staff around home and will feel better there.

    I hope all are well.

    I'm not sure what to say- just writing to say I'm thinking of you! My best friend was very, very ill for about a year. When they knew it was her gallbladder causing the issues, they removed it- she's been so good without any issues once since! It can be a nasty old thing!

    Thank you LouiseAndy just replying and letting me know you are thinking of me is plenty! It very reassuring to hear that your friend did well after. Iím hoping for the same outcome. It had given me a hard time for sure!

    I got a call from my Gyn office saying that my pap was negative for any abnormalities! I am so relieved!!! Now to just get this ultrasound of the pelvis done on Friday. I pray it is unremarkable and then I will feel so much more confident.

    I think youíve coped really well with so many tests!
    And yes, the CT scan probably showed up anything in your pelvis alreasdy. Is it an internal ultrasound youíre having next week?
    Diverticulosis can also give you the symptoms youíre getting, are they treating you for that too?
