Quick Update

Yesterday I decided to call my primary care doctor and take her up on her offer for an u/s. My pelvic pain was back - not the worst it has ever been - but still bothering me. I figured that I might as well try - my insurance should pay for it 100%, especially since it is the primary care doctor ordering it for pelvic pain and not the RE ordering it for IF.

My doctor wasn't in the office yesterday, so her nurse called me back this morning and said that they wanted to schedule me for an u/s. Of course, the pain is super minor and practically non-existent today. But, since they were able to get me in at 10:45 this morning, I decided to go have the u/s. done. I guess everything went okay...there were two techs and I asked them if they saw anything, and all they would say is that they don't interpret the results; the radiologist will and then I will get a call from my doctor today or Monday. I know it has to be the radiologist that gives the final interpretation, but wouldn't they know if there was something abnormal or if everything looks okay? One of the techs did ask me where I was in my cycle...not sure if that was because she saw any cysts or if she just wondered if I was having O pain or menstrual cramping or something.

So, we'll see what happens. Regardless, I will be able to take the results with me to the RE next week. Hopefully whatever the u/s shows will lead us in the right direction.


  1. Yes, they probably know but do not have the authority to tell you, seeing as they aren't the doctor. Just my personal experience. It's just a technicality.

    Good luck! Glad the u/s will be covered (or at least, more likely to be covered...)

  2. Well, even if the pain decreased better to have a look and no for sure if there's anything you need to deal with. Hopefully not though, keep us posted on the results!!!

  3. The tech's know, but if they say anything and get caught they get in BIG trouble. It is frustrating.

    Praying for good results for you.


  4. I find it so hard to wait for results. I always come up with all sorts of crazy diagnoses. I'm wishing you the best!

  5. I'm sure they know but they can't tell you anything. It's so frustrating, but I get why they do it. When I got an ultrasound at the ER, the tech was all happy and calling DH the daddy at first then when she started the ultrasound her whole face changed. She didn't say anything but I noticed and knew.

    Anyways, I hope you get some answers from the u/s and have a great appointment w/ the RE next week.
