First, I am having trouble with Bloglines again, it seems to be unsubscribing some of your blogs, and deleting you guys, and others just never show up with feeds of some of your posts at ALL. So if I've missed something important in your lives, I apologize....I have to go through each one of my bookmarks and check on you to see if you are still there.
I had the second half of my test today. My 23 hour uptake (supposed to be 24 hour, someone messed up the time keeping?) was 33.9% which is abnormal and indicative of hyperthyroid as long as my TSH is low. My last one was low but normal. And the scan was interesting, because before it looked like a deformed butterfly, totally weird. It has changed shape, and I have some mottled spots, not the even thing I was looking for. Picture #6 here in the images section is sort of like mine looked.
Anyway, now I have to email my GP and ask her where we go from here. She gave me this RAIU as a deal, like when it's normal, I promised to shut up and stop bothering her. But it's not normal...gahhhhh. I love how Drs. keep telling me it's nothing, like that episode of House last night where everyone had conversion syndrome and kept having weird symptoms show up after they saw the first guy on the plane become sick. Except that, just like the spinal tap results on that show, blood tests and MRIs & radioactive scans like this can't be faked. Even by someone with conversion syndrome, yet they just keep patting me on the head and telling me to relax.
Hey, do you think maybe I'm NOT the one who's in denial? Maybe it's been them all along?
Nahhh, couldn't be, I'm just a desperate housewife.
I have to go send a resume somewhere now. Cross your fingers, I'd love to get a paid job, maybe then I'd have credibility with the medical establishment.
