Doctor wants to see me, should I be concerned ??

I had blood work done about 2 wks ago, for my hormones, my doctor called me 3 days later, and said I had some elevations, so they ordered a pelvic abdominal and vaginal ultrasound. Now 4 days later, they called, and she wants to see me tommorrow .
Should I be concerned ??

Re: Doctor wants to see me, should I be concerned ??

Helllo Cvoor,
So what happened when the doctor called you in after ultrasound.
I tooo had my blood work done for my hormones(she checked every-thing)
I had blood work done for Prolactin,Thyroid(T1,T2,T3)My throat(where thyroid is,is very very swelled out)
I had also blood work for for ovaries too(estrogen,Progestron)Then the important thing they checked out was my Cortisol.
I had to get 2 blood tests for that.9am and then back to the lab with my kids at 4pm
Then a week after(it takes about a week for them to get the results back)
Welll they called me and told me that I'm getting a CT scan for my whole abdomen and Pelvic area.
But the thing I hate is I have to wait until like middle of June.
So this Wed I have an appointment to go and talk to her.
I'm upset that she did not telll me what they found with my blood work.
I can't beleive they expected me to wait until middle of June to find things out.
NOOO WAYY.
Only because my family(mother and my husband)are stressing me out.
They expect tooo much from me.
I keep trying to explain to them that I'm burned out.
I'm not healthy(I just know it)
I feeel so difffferent.My body does not feeel normal.
So I need to know if my cortisol is elevated,if so I need to ask her(doctor)what to telll every-one so they can back offf and let me take things in my own pace.
I mean they don't understand how I feeel so useless as a parent.
I feeel depresssed and I feeel so bad for my 2 kids.
I love them so much.But I have no energy.I'm not my-self right now(like since the summer I have not been my-self)
I even had to pulll my little boy out of KARATE.
I feeel so bad doing that to him.But he only has until end of March for karate.
But becuase since Jan we have not beeen there that much.
I know they probably wont pass him and give him a sticker to put on karate belt.
So I just did not want to dissapoint him.
I'm always so tired.Especiallly by like 5pm and later I'm burned.
Where I some-times feel like I'm going to pass out.
I need to telll my doctor alll this to her tooo.
Just so I can get them to understand that I'm honestly trying to survive.
I'm trying so hard to make it every-day.
It's so hard to explain.
But I'm glad that finally I have help and I'm so happy that I'm finally getting a CT scan.
I can not get ultrasounds any-more.
I can no longer breathe in deeep.I do but alll they find is gas in my whole abdomen.
So even the doctor told me that they can not seee what actually is there if it's gas they only see.
It was torture doing those ultrasounds.
What should take 5-10 mins doing ultrascan would I swear take like half an hr.
Then for the rest of the day or 2 I would be in so much pain.
Ok I better get going,
I'm making my little girl some lunch now.
I willl keep you updated.
Pamela
