My appointment with Dr. Guertin was at 4:00 today. I wasn't feeling the best when I went to see her today so whey she offered a Tordol shot, I accepted. Bad idea. I said it before, and I'll tell myself again - DO NOT GET A TORDOL SHOT. It never really helps, especially if it is only meant to work for a day or two, and I felt WORSE after getting it. I still think I am allergic to it. Dr. Guertin told me I should call and schedule 3 MRIs to see what is going on. She also scheduled 2 different appointments to have a shot in both sides of my hips. Said I had swollen bursa sacks in my hip joints, and that shots would help them.
My appointment was at 9:15. Arrived at 9:05, and was taken back to a room at 9:20. Everything is going well except my lower back and hips. I didn't have to get a shot, so this visit was primarily to get my scripts updated. I had forgotten to have my blood tested before seeing her, so when I got back into town, went to the hospital to get it done. The hospital parking lot was all tore up - they look to be expanding, and adding on, so I had to walk through a maze to get in the front door and to where I needed to be. I was in and out pretty fast. Went to see Dr. McMath too.
