I just wanted to mention in the list of blood tests to have/vitamin + mineral levels to have checked, I noticed vit D wasn't on the list, and I'm pretty sure that's an important one for all of us to watch.
That's so discouraging. The only way I keep making it through this is to try and stay positive and hope for the best. Just the thought of still being sick after five years is more than I can stand to think about right now.
I had the same thing happen, exactly, and it was nothing... but anyone would be terrified, of course. Sometimes, with dense tissue as I also have, they just want to be sure by taking an ultrasound. Then they have something to compare it to the next year. I thought it was a sign that they were doing a good job and being thorough.
