At least I have to call for my results so I don't have to do the "jump every time the phone rings" thing. But I hate this part!
My doctor did say he thinks it's unlikely that I have leukemia, or anything else really wrong with me, but he's doing a bunch of blood counts, as well as testing for things like arthritis and lyme just to make sure my joint pain isn't related to that (I'm pretty sure I've been tested for those before.) He also didn't seem worried at how much I bled after my blood test and tetanus shot. (And he was not interested in seeing the picture of my petechiae that my mom suggested I take. Kinda figured he wouldn't be!)
I know he wouldn't lie to make me feel better - he's usually just honest about what he thinks is up. He told my mom it was 50/50 that she had thyroid cancer, for example. (She didn't, btw.) So I think he'd tell me if he thought anything was unusual. But he could still be wrong.
I've also lost seven pounds in a few weeks, which is worrying me. I know it's not a huge loss, and I know my appetite has been diminished off and on for a while, plus a stomach bug that had everything I did eat coming right out of me superfast, but I'm not one to spontaneously lose weight.
If he noticed anything weird in my lymph nodes or spleen or some other indicator of cancer, though, he didn't mention it. And my night sweats seem to be gone for good, so I guess those weren't an indicator of something sinister. He said he thinks my problems are anxiety, being fat and being lazy. Okay, he said those other two more nicely, because he's nice, but...it sums it up. I'm heavy and I don't exercise at all. Often I don't feel well, but for the most part I just don't want to. I get bored so easily and I don't tolerate boredom well. But I know he's right. That should change. Good for anxiety, too.
