P4, Take 2 scheduled

Well, the order is in for my 7 dpamaamvsomlo (that's 'days past alleged-mittelschmerz-and-a-mysterious-vascularized-spot-on-my-left-ovary', aka Friday) progesterone draw. Bonus: the nurse is going to send it in marked STAT so that hopefully I will get results back before the weekend.

Now I just have to make sure that someone will call me and tell me the results. I hate harassing my clinic for test results. I called for my P4 from last cycle and the nurse was like, "Oh, you wanted to know?" Doesn't everybody? I guess not.

I've been trying to remind myself that it would not be the end of the world to have to wait till Monday to hear the results... except that I would really prefer to get started on my next cycle soon and get going on that prometrium. Not the end of the world, but annoying.

Speaking of my next cycle... so I've been googling... I know, I'm just asking for it when I do that, but I've found some forums where women have complained that their cycles went way off after getting their gallbladders removed. It makes sense that surgery would cause (additional) problems with my cycle. Definitely shouldn't have googled that, now just one more thing to worry about. Of course, that's what drugs are for, right? Google needs to have some kind of lock out feature that prevents medical searches for those that just can't help themselves.

Get this, I'm down more than 5 lbs since my surgery... most of that is, ahem, "water" weight. That's hilarious to me.


It's been 2 days since my last BBT. It still tempts me. I woke up on my own at 3:30 this morning and couldn't go back to sleep for an hour. This is a tough addiction.

Five pounds is a total win. Mom's weight went down and stayed down after her gallbladder surgery.

I'm glad I'm not the only one with the google issues. I'm fighting the urge to check out more things now though. I hope they are able to get your results back to you before the weekend. And very cool about the weight loss.
Thanks for you comment. Whatever the pain was, it went away and I was able to fall asleep pretty good. I felt pretty bad though and was debating scheduling an appt. Today I feel fine though, so I'll wait to see if it happens again. When you had the GB attacks, did you get sick each time or was it ever just weird pain?

For me it was just pain. Nothing would happen. I hurt to the point the first night that I was just hoping something would happen so I'd feel a little better. Thanks for the info. If it comes back again, I guess it's time for an appt.

You know what? I agree. One of my best friends IRL is an ME and her and I have talked about this many times..that it's somewhat Darwin's way of weeding out the really smart go getter females like us.

I always try so hard not to google medical things. My hubby does this more than I do,lol. Loosing a few pounds sounds nice. I hope you are healing well. Hugs to you :)
