Pain Relief > Analgin (Generic) 500mg > 180 Pills > $195.00

Digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 lost voiceI hope you can read the print on this.

Digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 It’s a hoot!

Digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 Apparently, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 the Vacuum Tympan cures the most “desperate causes” of hoarseness and sore throat, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 massages vocal cords and gives immediate flexibility (to what?). Digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 Oh, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 and after it brings relief, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 “a permanent cure soon follows”.

Digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 Maybe it sucks out the phlegm. Digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 (Ewww…just writing that made me gag.)

Digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 It sort of looks like the old incentive spirometers we’d use for post-op patients.

Digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 Or maybe it’s a type of  nebulizer.

Digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 Frankly, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 it looks like a bong.

Vive le Grand Rounds!

This week Captain Atopic takes on the medical blogosphere carnival Grand Rounds using the Tour de France for a theme! Merci beaucoup, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 capitaine!

Next week, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 Grand Rounds will be right here at Emergiblog – there is a post directly under this one, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 but for the life of me I did not know how to make it “stick” up at the top.  Bottom line, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 I’m waiting for your submissions! : )

(PS – don’t forget to send your nurse-related posts to Man-Nurse over at Man-Nurse Diaries for the next Change of Shift!  Submissions can be sent to “mannursediaries at gmail dot com”.)

********************

I’m at that age where certain tests involving scopes and colons are recommended, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 so I did my duty as the good custodian of my health and scheduled the pre-test appointment.

(Don’t worry, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 this will not be a case of “TMI”.)

I’m sitting there with the GI doc going over my health history, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 when he notices I’m on Protonix. Digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 Based on this fact (and the fact that my upper abdomen is sore on palpation – well, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 duh, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 you’re pushing on it!) he says “Well, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 you are going to be out anyway, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 I might as well take a look down there, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 too!”.

Say what? I’m here for a tube up one end and you want to put a tube down the other end, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 too?

I swear to (insert-your-own-deity-here), digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 my first thought was “dude, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 you’re just trying to add a procedure to crank up the income.”

I’m not proud that was my first thought, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 but I’m being honest here. Digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 “Sure!” he said. Digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 It might be a structural problem, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 we can make sure you don’t have Barrett’s Esophagus (note to self: look that up) and basically just know what we are dealing with.

Well, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 okay. Digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 But I don’t have indigestion/heartburn when I’m on Protonix; I’m rather asymtomatic, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 actually.

“What kind of anesthesia would you prefer? We can use Versed/Fentanyl or if you want, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 we can use proprofol.

Propofol? Dude, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 you can stick a tube anywhere you want.  Go for it!

*****

Easiest thing I’ve ever done. Digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 I have no idea why I waited so long. Digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 When I fell asleep Shania Twain was feeling like a woman and when I woke up, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 the Eagles were takin’ it easy and I wondered when the hell they were going to start!

I was done.

The procedure went well, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 the biopsies were taken (routine) and I would get my results by mail within two weeks.

*****

My colon rocks. Digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 No problems except divertiulosis and I can live without nuts and seeds.

It was the endoscopy that I almost refused that showed the problem.

The biopsies showed acid-induced esophageal and gastric inflammation.

What??? How??? I thought the Protonix was taking care of that!

*****

And then came the “treatment” boxes checked off.

“Keep taking your medicine for the next three months, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 then stop.”

Okay…if I have this inflammation now, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 why would I stop the medication? Won’t it get worse if I do?

“Please avoid Aspirin, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 Naprosen, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 and Motrin. Digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 Tylenol is okay.”

Aw man, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 Motrin is my best friend, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 my right hand! It’s gotten me through many a rough shift; 12 hours in the ER can make you ache. Digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 Tylenol isn’t worth the powder it is printed on.

I took a swig of my Diet Pepsi.

“Avoid fatty foods…”

Okay, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 doing that already with ol’ Richard Simmons’ plan.

“…chocolate, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 peppermint, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 spearmint and smoking”

Bah – I don’t smoke and I can live without chocolate and who wants spearmint anyway?

Took another swig of Diet Pepsi.

“…alcohol…”

No biggie, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 I only have two Bud Lights a month, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 during Nascar races, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 and that’s only to support Kasey Kahne’s sponsor (and I know you all just doubled that to four per month…).

“Avoid caffeinated beverages…”

Uh oh.

Took a tiny swig of Diet Pepsi.

“Decaffeinated coffee…”

That…means…ohh nooooo…

*****

Oh HELL no.

I will NOT give up Starbucks.

Damn it!

I don’t smoke, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 I barely drink, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 I don’t do drugs, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 my diet has more fiber that corrugated cardboard, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 I’ve lost close to 30 pounds and I’m working on the other 25.

My only “vice” is a total addiction to Starbucks and the goal of someday mainlining Diet Pepsi.

It will be a cold day in hell before I give those up.

*****

I’m giving them up.

I know the effects of chronic esophageal and gastric inflammation can lead to bigger problems.

And in the scheme of things, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 given the impact a diagnosis can make on a life, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 this borders on laughable.

But we all talk about how the patient has to take responsibility for their health. Digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 I could keep on downing Starbucks twice a day and Diet Pepsi in my sleep and then whine because my Protonix isn’t working.

Or I can make the changes suggested and see if they will make a difference.

But how ironic that the main problem was found in a test I didn’t even know I needed; and how scary that I was essentially asymptomatic, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 but the inflammation was still there!

Digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 Kudos to the doc for being interested enough to find out why I had needed to be on Protonix to begin with.

Digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 I shudder to think what things would have looked like had I been on no medication.

*****

Who knows?

Maybe I can go off Protonix if these changes work.

And I can still go to Starbucks, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 only my new drink will be a Grande Skinny Vanilla Steamed Milk.

With a little cinammon on top.

Hey, digestive health & nausea > herbolax 10 strip box > 7 > $281.00 a girl’s gotta have something to look forward to…
