The easiest way to avoid regrets is to ask yourself this question, "If not now, when?" It's a powerful way to put life and our decisions about how we spend our time into perspective"
Such a great doctor!

Just came from the doc and thought I would share everything with you ladies |
1) side pain - nothing going on - no issues with spleen, no tumours, no cancer, no scar tissue. No nothing. Next step for me will be to talk to lapband doc but doc said even with that I may always have some side pain. Glad it's nothing serious!
2) tingling arms - he sees no pinched nerve in neck, no carpal tunnel. I'm feeling about 65% better with chiro at moment. There's no "free chiro" out there - someone told me there was at hospital. Nope. Got referrals for massage and athletic therapy as my coverage requires for health plan. Guess I'll press on with some more chiro as tingling arms ARE improving slowly. Again, just glad it's not something "more"
3) blood tests indicate high chlorestrol (sp) - total number is 6.88. He said that's borderline for meds but would rather wait and check again in 6 months as it has jumped since I started keto. He's on board with keto - said if it works for me keep on trucking. Said multivitamin is all I need - no other supplements - he said if someone tries to sell you more, they are after your money. I was definitely good with that! Suggested I reduce animal fat - awwwwww bacon!
4) regarding ongoing / far-reaching general pain. I asked for Celebrex and he wrote it out for me. Said to try for a couple of weeks but to keep eye on BP - mine is normally around 145 so just to keep a watch as sometimes there can be an impact
Only other thing he said was I have
premenopausal hormones so not to be surprised if my period returns since coming off Depo. Hell, if that's the worst of my issues I'll take it.
Feeling optimistic about the Celebrex and glad nothing "bad" is going on with me really. Thanks for listening gang!
I posted a comment yesterday... where did it go??

He actually said the "mystery pain" may never go away but I'm going to check into acupuncture soon after I have some time to get the arms working as close to 100%. I appreciate your support.|
