Marilyn Says :
This all started last July when I started losing weight. I thought it was because I was taking Pierre and Bella for walks. I went from 160 to 130 pounds, which was good because the doctor wanted me to lost weight. The problem now is, I am still losing weight.
Then, in January, I got an infection is one of breasts. It really swelled up and became very painful. So I went to the Doctor's Assistant who gave me some medicine and sent me for an unltra-sound. She felt a mamogram would be too painful for me. The unltra-sound came back with nothing wrong. So when I back again, she gave me the same medicine again.
Between my second and third doctor's assistant visit I got an infection in my ear and down my jaw. So when I went back the third time, she changed the medicine, ordered blood tests, order ultra-sound to my jaw and wants me to see a surgeon. Well, I got the blood test. My insurance will not cover two unltra-sounds so close together even though they are for different things. I got afraid to go to the surgeon. I don't want to know if I have cancer. So I cancelled the surgeon appointment.
So there is where Anna came in. A friend suggested that I ask her. Anna is going with me to the Doctor's Assistant tomorrow. We will reschedule the general surgeon's appointment - again to which she will go with me. I asked Anna to come in the room with me at the doctor's assistance and the general surgeon and she agreed - even if the doctor says no.
I am still losing the weight and get weaker. My breast has not healed as it should have. I have no energy. Even this is wearing me out. Anna says there is something wrong somewhere. She has suggested a couple of teas and things, but doesn't want to go counter act what the doctor is doing until she finds out what is going on.
So that is all I can tell you. I thank you all for your prayers, encouragements, and thoughts. I really need them right now. I felt you should know my problems.
Blessings to you all,
