So what is going on....

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 28, 2009, 7:05 PM


....been very busy these last few weeks, running to different doctors appointments and getting a battery of testing done.

Due to the type and amount of meds I take, I have to get my blood tested every few months (no more than 6 months apart). Normally everything comes back fine, no major issues ever, until this last test. We do not know why yet but out of the blue I have become anemic, I have never been anemic in my life and when you add that I have lost a total of 9 lbs in the last 45 days, also something out of the blue, there is no reason for me to be losing any weight really.

I am not diabetic, have no other 'conditions' that would cause this problem and that is why I am going through various blood tests, x-rays and having both a Colonoscopy and Cystoscopy.

A Colonoscopy: www.webmd.com/colorectal-cance…
A Cystoscopy: www.webmd.com/prostate-cancer/…

Only other symptoms have been severe fatigue, like right now it is almost impossible for me to keep typing, gonna have to go Clockwork Orange on them to keep them open. Oh yeah, when I went to give my sample at the Urologists office it was full of blood, hence the Cystoscopy.

This could be something serious, it could be something as simple as a vitamin definite, but to give you some idea of how fatigued I am right now, it's not even 9:00pm here and I have fallen asleep at least five times while typing this entry...make that six.

Not trying to make anyone worry, just letting you know what is going on with me.


On a better note, we will be going to the City Museum next Monday to get some measurements and come up with some design ideas for Jessy's wedding/reception area. Then we are off to Delmar to visit this nice little import store to see if we can find her a wedding outfit.

....back to laying down before I fall out of the chair.




Edit: CT Scan done

:( I hope everything comes back with the simplest, easiest to solve explanation, and it's nothing but a scare. With as much medication as you're taking, you are bound to have some weird cross-reaction at some point, I know my mum has trouble absorbing calcium and a couple of other vitamins because of all her meds, and I'm praying that your situation is similar and nothing really that serious. :hug:

Get better soon, ok? :)

Well so far:

Prostate - Perfect no problems found in physical or blood test
CT Scan w/Contrast wo/Contrast - Done still waiting on results
Anemia - worse

Not until they find out why, don't want to mask it and find out I do have some kind of digestive system cancer.

True. Although of course I'd rather you had just run-of-the-mill anemia. I'm assuming you're having more tests run?
