I saw my GI doctor yesterday.
He says we can rule out the gallbladder as the liver enzyme tests were okay (who knew the liver liked the gallbladder so much), and since there are no stones, that little organ should be well.
WARNING - there might be TOO MUCH INFORMATION in this paragragh...I told him that I still get pain/discomfort. I told him that I was having a lot of gas (particularly yesterday) and that I'd had bloody mucous on my TP that day.
So I'm all set up for a colonoscopy because now he's worried about that. It's June 23rd. I'm a bit freaked out, but know that it really won't be that bad (yes, yes, the prep is worse than the procedure. I've heard.). But, of course, I'm now getting to catestrophize about the possible outcomes. I'm good at this, and my psyche seems to revel in it even if my nerves don't.
My father has reminded me that my mother has had 2 of these and they've found nothing. So I cling to that voice of reason.
I'm going to do something other than obsess tomorrow. After I see my therapist and a client, I am going to see the Indiana Jones movie and have lunch at CPK. Good diversion.
