If you know me very well, you know that I’m one of those people who are afraid to see a doctor when something is physically wrong. I used to be one of those people who refuses to see a doctor for whatever complain I have in my body simply because I’m afraid to know what the real score. I used to be that person. But somehow, things should really change. I hate it when people around me are getting stressed because of my condition. Thus, I make it a point to see a doctor when something about my body that really bothers me.
That’s exactly what I did last Wednesday.
I forced myself to come to work because of an important meeting, which turned out to be a complete waste of time. Good thing, upon arrival, I immediately told my boss that after the meeting, I shall leave the office to see a doctor. I had upper-right abdominal pains since Tuesday. It hurts and it is really uncomfortable but the pain is still tolerable, thus I was able to convince myself to go to work on Wednesday. Besides, that my corporate life at stake.
And so I saw my ob-gyne and she requested several lab exams plus an ultrasound of my liver and gallbladder. She said she suspects it to be gallstones. I panicked! I had normal delivery for Ayex and is sure that I can do that again this time. But if I have stones, I will never be able to escape the knife.
Yesterday, I had my ultrasound and the person who did it said I am clear. Praise God! Today, I got the official findings of all the tests I took and everything is normal. Praise God again!. I know it is scary but it is better to know asap than to know later when you can’t cure what needs to be cured.
Hubby of course is very relived with the news. I just hope we’ll have the same relief after MIL sees her doctor tomorrow. They been deferring the appointment since Monday even if we said it is important that she sees her dermatologist asap. The reason, nobody is there to take care of Ayex. And so, even if hubby can work at home, we to to his office as usual since they opted to just see the doctor tomorrow, when both hubby and I are home.
I hope none of you sissies are like the person I am before – afraid of the doctor’s findings. And I hope, that all of you out there are doing all your best to be healthy because we all know – Health is wealth.
It was a relief talaga, Chyng!
Haha, paranoid ka nga. Ako pag sinabing normal lahat, super tatanggapin ko na yun. Mahirap ata magkasakit!
Sila MIL naman, ok rin ang findings ng doctor. Everything is well. 🙂
Praise God! such a relief talaga pag walang findings at mismong doctor na ang nagsabi.
Hay Nicquee, very opposite tayo. Hobby ko lang magpacheck up once may naramdaman ako. At pag walang findings, hahanap pa ko ng 2nd opinion. Hihi (paranoia!)
