I got to keep my pants on!

Met with the new PCP over the GB situation. Looks like I will be doing HIDA scan '09 whenever the radiology department gets around to calling me to setup the appointment. I kinda hope I fail again or I won't know what to do.

I'm a little embarrassed to be doing it again. The guy that gave me my last HIDA scan knew me through some mutual friends... a real plus when you get a sudden burst of gas from him stimulating your GB. I know that medical professionals are suppose to exercise confidentiality, but I still get a little anxious.

My PCP was in doubt that I could get both surgeries done at once. Yes, I know it will be difficult, but seems like I should try. Besides, my RE is the person who's opinion I really care about. If that cyst goes away it will be moot anyhow.

My PCP wanted to push on my abdomen and I got on the table and asked if I needed to pull my pants down or shirt up or something. No. No need to expose myself. Weird. I feel a little neglected since no one tried to violate me.

I forgot to ask her if colds can be sexually transmitted as DH has one and I don't. DH has used that excuse on me when I've had one, but now the tide has turned and he was D.E.N.I.E.D. last night.

I had more post but somehow it turned into a whole thing about my mother and I don't really want to do that today. Another time.

DENIED! I love that.

It doesn't hurt to try and kill two birds with one stone. You never know if you don't ask - why not do both surgeries at once if everything is located in same area. Right?

I'm always at a loss as to what I'm suppose to be doing at the doctors offices, but I could see myself asking the nurse "Should i get undressed?"

FYI - In england when someone is talking about their "pants" it means their underwear. So your title is totally fitting for your denied story! I thought it was hilarious, but I'm probably the only one.
