So I was doing really good, and then...
« on: January 09, 2014, 08:49:24 PM »
I had a routine follow up doctor appointment today with my gastrointerologist. It was supposed to be a simple appointment to which he tells me that my biopsies from my colonoscopy were normal (I already received a letter in the mail telling me that they were).

And I end up leaving with an order for an abdominal ultrasound, blood work, and a referral to a hematologist for a chronic low platelet count.

Oh how I soooo long to be healthy - physically and mentally.

Here's to 2014!

Why didn't you ask the doctor why he ordered the abdominal ultrasound? Of course, if you have chronic low platelets, it is the doctor's job to refer you to someone who can better understand why you have that. It may just be normal for your body. But if he did not look into it and (take this with a grain of salt) you did have something wrong, you could sue him.

He ordered the abdominal ultrasound (which I go for in an hour) to check for a swollen spleen due to the low platelets.

Thanks. My ultrasound went really well. She said my spleen was within normal limits for size and no other abnormalities on any of my abdominal organs. Now just waiting for my blood work. Hopefully it'll be in by Monday.
