It’s on… I guess.
2012 isn’t over yet, so my doctor must make it go out with a bang. My sheer exhaustion isn’t enough. He must send me for bones scans and injections. Fun. Fun. Fun.
This is a bone scan:
During the procedure, a radioactive die is injected into your vein. This tracer attaches to your bones and signals sites of high or low bone turn over. This can point to various conditions — breaks, cancer, arthritis… various things. Depending on your symptoms and history, your doctor will know the next step.
The worst parts are getting a shot (which wasn’t bad) and lying still for over an hour while this flat camera hovers above you.
It wasn’t bad, though. I got to watch my body light up like a Christmas tree. Not sure if this was good or bad thing.
I have other injections awaiting me next week. Not looking forward to it. Not at all. I’m really too tired for this business. And too busy.
I can’t even formulate a proper response to this attractive women with endometriosis study! Have you seen or heard about this?!? Oh my! If you haven’t, I urge you to catch up with Jeanne’s post over at Chronichealing.com. As always, her writing is spot on.
