Who would think that two little stones in the kidney could cause so much trouble? One Cat Scan revealed the little buggers a few weeks ago. Prior to that I was nursing a knee that had been Cat Scanned also. My knees proved to be better than the average 77 year old, but I was given a shot of cortisone to relieve the pain. which it didn’t. In the meantime, I took a tumble on the stage I was managing and fell on my knees. You’d think I spent a lot of time on those joints. Come to think of it, I do.
The show went much better, but I was covered with bruises on both of my legs, along with two little stones which were now rolling around and causing severe pain. A visit to the urologist determined they had to be blasted. So surgery was scheduled.
In the pre-op exam, my amazing doctor was reminded of another Cat Scan two years ago, which indicated some nodules on my lungs that we were going to rechecked after a year, but forgot to do. So another Cat Scan on my lungs happened last week, Friday. By end of the day, the report had been submitted and I got the good news that everything was normal. There was no growth or change in the nodules, so I am good to go for my procedure next week.
I am one of those people who cannot tolerate contrast dye, thus the Cat Scans. Can you imagine how many cats it takes to scan a body so many times? I can attest to the fact that there are a lot of them. Maybe even more than hang out in our neighborhood. Come to think of it, I could probably conduct my own Cat Scans
