I'm cheating on my doctor, my rheumatologist. She doesn't do it for me anymore. I need some one who excites me and gives me hope. So, I'm seeing her while waiting on an appointment from another doctor. Don't tell her...
In all seriousness, I saw my primary care doctor for my annual exam on Tuesday. I had blood drawn for her the day after I had blood drawn for my rheumy. I posted that my liver enzymes were bad from the results my rhuemy had drawn. But, one day later, from the labs my primary doc ran, two numbers were normal and the other had dropped considerably. So what can cause a spike like that? Doc thinks I was passing gallbladders stones. I do have some symptoms of gallbladder problems. Yesterday I had an ultrasound and should hear from my doc tomorrow.
It has been nearly two weeks since my last dose of methotrexate and a week since my first dose of humira. I haven't even filled my humira prescription. I am going to wait until I hear from my doc whether I will need gallbladder surgery. Yesterday the pain and inflammation began to sneak back into my joints. This morning I am stiff and sore but it isn't too bad.
I'll spare you any pictures of gallbladders. This is one of my rare, picture-less blogs.
