I broke down an went to see a new doc today so I could get it out of the way in case I get this new job. I was kinda worried because I am use to male docs but just took a deep breath and remembered all the nurses I seen before and tried to think of her as one of them. She also does a lot of acupuncture and physical therapy and don't like to give medications unless she has to. She was very nice but I'm not to sure about her new ideas.
She is the first one to really put all the different things together and tell me basically how they might be related instead of separate problems. It sounded good anyway. I showed her my xrays and cat scans and all the other papers in the folder and so she sent me over to get several gallons of blood taken. (i know but it seemed that way because there was so many of the big tubes taken) then she explained how just because the nerves to the bladder are not working that instead of looking just there that she wanted to see more toward my T and S sections of my back. I told her no offense but I been thru all that before and thats how I got all the other scans. She said yes but she still thinks it might be something else and wants me to get a cat scan on my head! She scheduled it for tomorrow. I told her I didn't have insurance anymore and that the last one was almost 5 thousand bucks! The rest that happened after that was pretty sweet and I don't have to worry about the money now but it's a long story. So I am going for a scan tomorrow. I asked her why a scan on my head if nerve problems for the UT system is either spine or organ related and she pretty much ask if I trust her or not. I said yes but was thinking she's off her rocker.
Now here's the part I don't really understand and maybe one of you guys can help me out here. She said that from all the symtoms I told her about that it could be (i can't remember exactly what words she used) but it was like water IN the brain??? She said i really needed to get it checked out to be sure. Any of you guys/gals heard of this before? Also that the pressure there could be causing micro spasms which is what makes my back hurt and side and also cause nerve problems to the UT system. She did say that the physical damage that I have from the deforemd bladder could also be causing the constant BPH and infections but if the problem really was what she thinks it might be then the rest could probably be treated and I could "lead a fairly normal life if not be almost cured with minamal care" (her words)
I really love the idea of being continent but there was so much that I don't understand with what she's saying now and it's pretty scary. I am suposed to see her again tomorrow evening after the blood work and scan gets back. I don't know if I should be scared or overjoyed. -VERY CONFUSED- is more like it now.
