I’m not a writer and today I’m feeling 🙃. This is my first post so I’m still trying to figure this out 😂. Today in my house is what we call “Transfusion Watch”. I’m anemic but also have cysts on my Ovaries which causes extensive blood loss. In June 2019 I had a pet scan and it showed high focal uptake in my endometrium and right ovary￼. I had a PET Scan. A PET Scan, High Uptake usually means cancer￼/disease. So the next step was a endometrial biopsy which thankfully came back benign￼. So then July 5￼th I was told I had ovarian cancer which was localized to my ovaries￼. This is 99% accurate and the only way to 100% confirm this would be to remove my ovaries￼. The doctor felt this wouldn’t be a good idea because as many of you know my current condition isn’t well￼. So this has been monitored via transvaginal ultrasound￼. I was told by removing my ovaries it’s a huge possibility that would cause it to spread that would involve a full hysterectomy which my body is in no shape to handle that surgery. So about four times a month I have 2 to 3 days of heavy bleeding which we measure. Because I’m anemic and if I lose too much I have to get a blood transfusion. So this is what’s happening today and this causes my BP to become extremely low which explains why am pretty out of it￼. I compare this to the film BrainDead a.k.a. Dead Alive Famous lawnmower scene￼. 😁￼Photo Courtesy of Google: ‘Dead Alive’ Film.
Because of my humor I usually relate my medical conditions to scenes from Horror Movies. I wear a blood pressure wrist cuff all day during these 2-3 days. I do have a heart condition called POTS (Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome), which adds to the lightheadedness. My Blood Pressure usually bounces but on days like this it runs low, average 70/40￼. Which explains why I feel loopy￼ 🙃. I usually Stay in bed when this happens to avoid falling so it allows me to catch up on lots of Horror Movies 😁. So in honor of today my first watch will be Dead Alive 😁.
