So, as if the word "Biopsy" isn't scary enough... when I went to Wednesday's doctor to schedule a colonoscopy, she said, "Wow! Your blood pressure is WAY UP, are you experiencing chest pains!?"
Sheesh... I've never been this scared!
Fortunately, when I went Thursday to the gyno for the endometrean biopsy, my blood pressure had dropped 20 pts but it is still too high.
-- Colonoscopy is to determine the source of the pain I'm experiencing.
-- Thursday's Biopsy was to determine whatever it is they saw in my uterine wall.
Two unrelated things (that we know of) that caused a domino-affect of tests... I felt unusual pain which led to ultrasound tests that showed something totally unrelated to the pain. So I was sent to "examine" my intestines also.
After Thursday's biopsy, my doctor told me "there WILL be more procedures so prepare your schedule..." but she wouldn't elaborate until she sees the results from the biopsy (the Doctor will call with the results by next Wed or Thurs.)
Now, I've google-searched "holistic ways to lower blood pressure" because I really don't like taking medication and much of the foods they recommend aren't good for my PCOS body-type (beans, white potatoes, bananas, etc.)
Can my body become any more complicated!? Sheesh! I've always been so dang healthy!
TODAY is a new day! I will DO what I can:
-- EXERCISE as much as my time will allow
-- make the healthiest choices I can
-- Keep and eye on SODIUM
-- DRINK my water
-- TAKE MY VITAMINS!
Have a GREAT week, Everybody...
