I spent about an hour to 2 hours last night getting checked over. For the last 3 or so weeks I have had none stop Dieareya Black stool and none stop Heartburn. As of the last 4 days to a week my whole stomach. I finely gave in to every one telling me to go to the hospital Even though I keep saying no over and over. it took my mom threatening to take the tralior from us to get me to agree and go.
I spent maybe a total of 30 minutes sitting in the waiting room talking with Tay. lol he wanted to make a bet. if is was a bleeding ulcer I would have to make him dinner. Laughed about it and nodded in agreement. during these kins of things that's all you can really do is just laugh and nod in agreement.
I guess the hardest part is this and it will always be that way is the waiting once you get called in the back. More so when your alone by your self because your mate ops out to stay in the waiting room then come in the back with you when the nurse called. I am angry and sick with my self. the last time I got weighed I was 300 pounds. Now mind you this was year and years ago. got weighed last night 372.9 I almost fell over sick from that alone. did every thing else was not shocked to learn that my blood pressure is way to freaking high. Get done with all of there silly little questions and get taken to the room.
Here comes that worse part just sitting in there waiting and waiting and waiting for what feels like forever, and then walks in the doctor. Your then asked to repeat every thing you already said at least 2 times now. Once to the lady who checks you in and puts that annoying little band thing around your wrist. the second time to the nurse whom weighs you and asks if you still smoke or do you drink blah blah blah. So I sit there and I ramble it off as he tells me ot lay back and get my legs up on the table.
He asked me where it hurt the most so I pointed to the center of my chest ran my fingers down slowly along it and down over my belly and then out. He would nod and move over and start to press FUCKING HARD at those spots making me gag inhale deeply and almost scream in pain. Now here come the lovely part he asked me what I been taking for the other stuff I listed above. Told him Peptobimal and a off brand of TUMS. He told me half my problems where comeing form the PEPTO and that I need to stop using it. the Tums they are fine. he then goes to explain that because I smoke and was using the Pep and because I am over weight for my height.
That I have and I quat Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease Also know as GERD. This is a condition Where the acid from the Stomach backs up into the Esophagus ( also known as the food pipe ) Most people experience this as Occasional Heartburn, Sometimes the backup occurs so frequently that the symptoms are Server, and eventually damage may be done to the esophagus. it even goes on to list that being over weight can and dose cause for it to worsen.
Now here is the Kicker it says I need to lose weight but one of the things the doctor told me to do was start eating more Crackers and Certain types of Cereal. What the fuck. another is they want me to take something called Prilosec which is to help reduce the acid build up and I guess help coat my throat.
With that he tells me to have a good day and walks out telling me the nurse will be by in a member with the superscription and the rest of the Details. So I ended up giving in going spending anywhere form 1 hour to 2 hours there and got told pretty much NOTHING of MASSIVE importance, and am going to get charged any where form 100 to 500 for what little they did do.
LOL so all in all I am fine. Oh one more thing Next time I tell you guess no maybe you should LISTEN TO ME.
