Ok I survived the testing today:) I was diagnosed with some issues but nothing life threatening. Evidently I have reflux, that has caused esophagitis, and irregular Z line (what the heck), a hiatus hernia and possibly H. pylori ..... so as I'm reading the irregular Z line can be linked to Barret's which can lead to cancer. However H. pylori fights that cancer...LOL it's crazy reading all the stuff on the internet. The doctor told me everything is manageable, put me on a daily medication and I'll see him in 2 weeks....
I also did the bladder ultrasound and I learned I successfully empty my bladder, that is always a good thing:) I still have the bladder scope on Monday and I'm a bit stressed but going in the procedure area today and talking with the really nice nurses did put me at ease. The med they gave me to put me to sleep was really really really nice....wish they could prescribe that to me daily LOL!
Thanks for your prayers and please keep them coming so I can get all of this behind me. I feel a bit betrayed by my body to have all those things going on and not even know it! I don't really have any symptoms of reflux. The reason I had the test (was supposed to have had in Sept 2012 right after my colonoscopy) was because I have that crazy side pain that doesn't go away, a family history of colon cancer, my own personal precancerous polyps and anemia. But I didn't ever think I had stomach issues. I feeling old!
Here are some funny pictures of the kittens watching Bill O'Reily on Fox news last night:) These cats crack us up!
