More stress just as things were getting better
Tuesday, January 16, 2018
I had a urologist appointment today which was good timing because for the past 5 to 7 days i feel very much like i have a UTI. Well they did a straight cath right away ( i have bladder issues so they want to make SURE its a clean catch) and they did a quick test and will still do a culture. Well so far no infection but it may still be there. With my back pain being worse and so much bladder and other stomach pain they said it COULD be kidney stones and if no infection will do a cat scan next. Well we only got a few blocks a way when the doctor himself called me. He has to run more advanced testing on it, i have a HUGE amount of protein in my urine and your suppose to have none. Being diabetic you can have kidney issues. Thursday i am suppose to call the nurse for the results of all this. If no infection which can cause protein then they check for kidney stones if thats negative its my kidneys not working right. This really scares me, i have so many health issues already. It is not good at all to have protein in your urine i guess.
On a good note i got 45 minutes of cardio in at PT and i actually hit my 3000 steps today. Up till the urologist appointment my mood was doing a bit better today, not perfect by any means but a bit better. Tomorrow i go for coffee with the peer support leader at 11am i hope it helps!
