    Spoiler: I'm alive!

    Still felt sick this am. Went off to see my PCP, a young NP who is always very thorough. After vitals and a quick round of 20 questions, she'd ruled out all the scarier possibilities and was pretty sure it was the post-op meds. Prescribed an anti-nausea pill, and ordered chest& abdomen xrays just in case, as well as blood electrolytes. As I said, thorough. She told me to d/c other meds (I already did) and go to er if anything gets wo

    Probably have lab results tomorrow, but I'm feeling better

    Labs just came in, everything is good. Still feeling a little blah, but much better than yesterday.

    Do normal people enjoy reading their own lab reports and x-rays? I sure do.

    I love reading about everything!! X-ray reports, lab reports... as much detail as possible... & when I found Bonesmart 6 years ago it fuelled my need for info.
    My twin sis hates knowing anything about her op, results...
    each to their own... knowledge is power!!!!
    Hope that nausea soon wears off x

    My wife thinks I’m nuts for reading everything! I want more! I was actually let down when even the infectious control specialist do not have the species of Penicillium fungus that popped up in one of my tissue samples.

    I mean, are we talking Bleu Cheese or moldy orange? A guy wants to know. :rotfl:

    Reading good reports and lab results that bring reassurance - the best.
    Getting to the point where this is no longer an issue, priceless!:tada:

    Hope today is a better day!:thumb:

    Well, I had to cancel the skydiving lesson.

    Took me a while to realize that the nausea was caused by heroic constipation. Not surprising after a month of narcotics and iron supplements. Took appropriate action yesterday. Still felt blah this morning, but I ate some solid food about an hour ago and it's behaving.

    Lesson learned: track your BMs while on meds.

    In other news, pain is basically gone. If I lie on the op side too long it gets sore, but that's about it. I took a walk yesterday to look at the blueberry bushes, then back past the chicken houses -- maybe 300 feet on uneven ground. Very comfortable and easy.

    I might even do something useful today. Who knows!
