Ok, so yesterday my GP called with results of my blood work. Everything was great according to her. My liver, my kidneys, my cholesterol etc... except for low ferritin. So I was happy that all sounded good, but still wondering about the low ferritin.
My GI did my endo Apr. 2 and his secretary called to schedule me back on May 27th. They don't call for follow-ups for nothing so I assume there's something. But it wasn't urgent obviously because that was still quite some time away. I kinda thought "aha I'm right, he found celiac". I guess I'll find out in 10 days. In the meantime he had also sent me for CT enterography (abdomen) to rule out crohn's before he even got results of the endo. I like that he's thorough.
WELL, today when I got home I had a message from a urologist that wants to see me next Wednesday. I was scheduled because of a consult request from my GI. I thought "A urologist??? What the heck???" Anyway called his office and his secretary told me it's because of my kidney and that my GI had made the request. I'M FREAKING OUT!!! Obviously something came up in the CT scan. I'm thinking the worst now. OMG! I'm completely freaking out. It's a holiday here on Monday so I probably won't be able to reach my GI to ask questions. I have no symptoms of kidney issues whatsoever. They didn't refer me to a nephrologist. If it's a urologist it makes me even more worried. They only touch kidneys when it involves bad stuff requiring surgery. And of course I looked up his bio and he specializes in laparoscopy nephrectomy to remove cancerous kidneys. He's listed as general/oncological urology.
I can't understand that nobody bothered to call me to explain anything and just left me to wander my mind alone. I'm freaking out.
