I have been busy though....visited my Doctor on Tuesday. He did blood test and urine test. Everything was normal and my A1c is 7.0.....yay, I guess that means I am learning to control the diabetes. I also wanted to talk to my Doctor about something that has been bothering me. It seems I have a hernia and that, apparently is what has been causing a lot of my sickness once a month or even twice a month.
Today I went to a specialist in Hernias. And yes, I will be needing surgery. Next week I will have a CAT scan, the Doctor will then know exactly where the hernia is. She will preform the Robotic surgery making 4 incisions and putting mesh in....sounds amazing to me. If it helps me not to have that awful pain, nausea and throwing up, I will face my fears of an operation. The operation will be September 3rd.....if you think about me that day please pray for me. Thanks. I will be out of commission for at least 2 weeks, no lifting, housework, driving, etc. Hopefully I can have all my errands done and food cooked in the freezer for JP to eat. He likes his beans, oat meal and chicken soups....easy to make in the micro-wave.
I should add...this hernia is a result of the operation I had in 1986. I had a bleeding ulcer, the Doctors operated to try and stop the bleeding. The nerves were cut in my stomach, the spleen was accidentally touched and started to bleed and that was taken out. I have a long incision from the breast bone to the belly button. It seems that the walls around the stomach weakened over the years and the hernia appeared...it actually started to bother me back in March of 2014...I would get pain, nauseousness and throwing up. Always clutching my stomach. One good thing out of this....I have lost almost 40 lbs since last October....so hopefully I can lose a few more before the operation. The Doctor said.....good job, this will help a lot.
