The fluid filled “pocket” that I have is a hernia. This will require me to have surgery. From now on, I’m not allowed to lift anything heavier than a gallon of milk until I have the surgery. I will also be out of commission for about a week after the surgery. My surgery is scheduled for Nov 4th. (I would have done it next week but I would have missed taking my kids trick or treating.)
I was also referred to an endocrinologist to treat the Hashimotos. I’ll be heading out for a thyroid ultrasound tomorrow.
My doctor has also restarted me on the iron.
We are slowly but surely getting down to figure this all out. She also thinks I have the beginnings of arthritis.
