I am still waiting for the result of my C3 since the clinic needs three days to process my blood. But I already got the result for my urinalysis, blood count, serum creatinine, pt inr and Xray.
Here it is :
Urinalysis – based on what I see, I have UTI. Some pus cells but I am thankful that the ALBUMIN and SUGAR are both NEGATIVE.
Last Saturday, while waiting for my turn on the XRAY machine I saw an old man who was on his way out of the ultrasound room. I noticed that he was carrying something that is swaying on his side. I know then that he is using a catheter. Sight like this bothers me. Most of the time fear would envelop my being and I would turn into paranoid thinking one day I might suffer the same fate. I cannot help but observed the man as he was escorted by his son. He was carrying a plastic bag which I think contains some of his medical stuff. And I am grateful that he seems to be receiving the right medical attention for his age and his disease. Speaking of medical stuff, did you know that you can shop online for your medical supply needs? Yap, through AllegroMedical.com. This site has a lot of products ranging from medical equipment to maternity and baby supplies. Also, they have an option wherein their system would re order your supplies on the date you have specified. So, if you are one of those who needed such product try them out!
A couple of weeks back I got so nervous because I noticed that there is a blood stain in my underwear when I was trying to pee. I was really shocked since I just had my period the week before and now I am seeing blood again. I cannot help but be nervous. So I asked my sister if she had experienced that and she told me she didn’t. That really bothers me and turned me again into a worry freak. I decided not to write about it here since at that point I was slightly disturbed. I was already thinking that I might have a protein leak and my kidney has been affected by my lupus already (to which my mind is contradicting also since I am on a high dose pred right now) or I have some ovarian problem (back in 2004 I was diagnosed to having a cyst on my ovary). It’s a blessing that it did not happen again until last Saturday. Oh this really made me freak out that I started searching the net about my situation.
My family and close friends have branded me as someone who has high tolerance of pain. Especially for friends who have seen battle with my LUPUS. They have seen how hard headed I was when I even went to work with a forty degree Celsius fever and trying to walk while I am plagued by severe joint pains. Yap, that’s me. And should I say that most of the time this happen I won’t even take pain relievers.
