Well I saw my Doctor yesterday and he is setting up an appointment to see a new Urologist. I also did the pee test for him at the lab and will know more by the end of the week. He didn’t want to give me any meds until he knew for sure that I needed them. He did refill all my other meds I need.

Sometimes I feel like a drug addict with all the pills I take. I don’t have that many, but it sure seems like it at times. They all do different things and I take them only when I need them. I only have one that I take daily. The others are when my daily pill doesn’t work. Does that make sense?

I’m actually trying something different with my pills. Normally I would take my greenies every morning and every evening, which I am doing, but I am adding in my tramacet every 4 hours, one pill to see if it relieves any of my bladder pain. So far it does seem to help. If you don’t have any kind of medical plan these pills will cost you an arm or a leg.

Anyways, my Doctor says I will probably need to get a cystoscopy done again since the last time I had it done was in 2004. I’ll find out once I see my new Urologist. He will probably want to do one. Its not fun. Lots of pain for a few days afterwards. We’ll see what happens.

So, this week will be me sitting around working on my blog, reading books, watching TV and not much more. I have to take it easy. My life is at a slow pace at the moment since doing anything strenuous can bring on a world of pain. Which I really don’t want to have.

    My doctor is pretty good. He is always on top of the latest happenings. He listens to me when I say I need something. I just hope this new Urologist is a good one.
