Today was my last day at the clinic. It’s been a long week for me and actually glad to get back. I am leaving with a small amount of information. I feel as this trip here could have all been done at home with my doctors.
Here is a little break down
I had blood work and and ultrasound
Ovarian cysts-have been aware of this
May have endometriosis-that’s new
End of it is a waiting game…..going on with that now for 2 years
I had a questionare done, ct scan, nutrition class
I had kidney stones- knew that
I don’t have one how- i would hope not
Class- told me what to eat and what not to but could not help me with what is ok to eat to prevent kidney stones and anemia.
I have migraines- knew this
I have tension headaches- I knew this
Did not learn anything here other than what I knew
Chronic pelvic pain CBT group
Best part of mayo trip for me. I loved the lady who taught it. I learned a bunch and will be working on things that I learned there.
They never discussed my anemia nor my thyroid issue. These were within my top three issues. Why do I have anemia? Even the doc here said it was due to heavy flow. Nope….I will not got into detail but I have had several procedures done and know my cycle is not heavy. So What? Why? His response well continue on oral iron with vitamin C. I have for a month already I have really bad symptoms. I had a bleeding ulcer from taking iron pills. He says I should increase the dose. I said I will not. Something else isn’t right. Next question. Do you eat meat. I said I make sure of it . Oh………..well we will keep doing infusions. Let your primary deal with that.
I continued to question why I am so tired, nauseated, etc. All the time. He says I need to do more therapy. I am a firm believer in therapy but to get back to somewhat normal I have worked on my own with that and no improvement.
Thyroid. Yes I have a huge problem with that. We need to increase the meds. Let your primary work on that.
Let’s so some more blood work. Let’s set you up for a three day class. It’s for fibromyalgia. Finally something.
Now I got news that my iga is HIGH.
This was all discovered at or after my last appointment.
So…….did I gain anything from mayo? Yes their education classes were amazing! That’s why I only said i would come back. Other than that I do believe my mayo days are done. I don’t see why I should travel so far just to get the same results as I have over the last year.
I believe mayo is amazing and cab help so many people but in my case I am walking away with
You may have endometriosis, celiac, fibromyalgia, increase synthroid, and great educational information.
