I'm back on....
« on: August 03, 2014, 01:08:21 AM »
More to say later......My gall bladder is back to normal (?).  But maybe there is something still wrong with it - I'm going back to emergency to find out, just in case.

I'm impressed how the hospital gets the blood and urine tests results so fast.

Hoping for the best for you Peter. Just wondering which hospital you have tests done. When I go to the hospital the results of tests take forever.

Hello Peter. I hope everything works out ok. I'm in an area like Dragonfly, they seem to think that 2 wks is breaking a record to get your results back. Take Care. paul m

Hi, guys......I have an appointment with a stomach specialist in Sept.

The hospital is Scarborough General, not far from my place....but my regular hospital is St. Michaels, Toronto.

Hello Peter. Well if your gall bladder is back to normal least something about you is normal LOL. Just kidding, you are as normal as I am LOL.

 I hope that you find out what is wrong. I know that having something wrong and not being able to find out what can be very stressful. Take Care. paul m

I have a package of forms when Emerg discharged me.  A little worrisome/ a little not - the CT scan  (without a dye to highlight stuff in my body) report
 has lotsa little things that are wrong.....btw, MOST of the terms I had to look up on Wiki.
Good news:  The radiologist (?) uses words like "tiny,"very small" a lot......example - I may have a cyst on one kidney, but it's so small, she's not sure.

Good news:  Recommendations on report - get CT scan of chest in a few months.....something or other with gall bladder.....I forget. (report mentions lungs twice, but I can't "translate.

Thanks, back to "normal" now, and I have leftover pain meds just in case.

Different topic - I got myself out of depression (more or less) twice lately by forcing myself to leave the apt and walk a lot/do errands.

I think that more strenuous exercise would help even more.

Hello Peter. Good to see that you got(getting) out of your depression. You are correct that the strenuous the exercise the bigger the benefit. But sometimes when I'm depressed just going out for a walk takes all of my energy. So give yourself a pat on your back for getting up and getting out. Take Care. paul m
