So I finally got did the kidney sonogram yesterday. I decided not to start drinking the water until I left the house for the appointment. The appointment was at 2:30 I left my house about 2 o’clock. I have an extremely large water jug I drink every day so I started sucking down my water.￼ The place was nearby so I was there quickly. I did the best I could. It’s a good thing I didn’t start an hour before my appointment as instructed. They were on time to see me, but the table wouldn’t go up and down and I wasn’t able to get on. I had to wait for a different room for a half an hour. Guess what, by then my bladder was full and thankfully I had no accidents. Go Me!!! The little things you get to be proud over when you have MS.
I have no idea what the sonogram of the kidneys showed. I do know that the bladder sonogram was done while full and after I relieved myself. After I did use the bathroom, there was still a significant amount of urine left in the bladder. This is a problem, however not unexpected. Even the tech said this is normal with incontinence because the bladder just doesn’t function right. It’s the reason I go to the bathroom so frequently because my bladder never empties correctly. I don’t know what can be done, if anything. I’m sure I’ll hear from the urologist soon.
After the test was done I decided to go get my flu shot at my local pharmacy. I must say they had this cute little side room to give the shots and the pharmacist was super nice. I kind of rebelled with the flu shot after I stopped working at the nursing home. I had to have the flu shot every year and a tuberculosis test done. So I think when I stop working I just didn’t want to do the shot anymore. However with Covid around again I figured I should definitely have the shot so I did it
I didn’t want to get out of bed today. ￼I don’t know if that was flu shot or weather related. It is another rainy day in NY. I did get up, took care of my furry babies and worked out. Now I’m planning on doing nothing for the remainder of the afternoon. I’m a girl with a plan.
