Timbo Posted November 23, 2004 Report Share Posted November 23, 2004 I have been doing pretty good. I am working full time now, I work in a pretty stress free job so that helps a lot. I have felt pretty good except for the occasional fatigue, lightheadedness and shortness of breath. I have managed to control my anxiety without medication. I have figured out how to calm myself anytime I get a nasty symptom or two.I had some moderate kidney pain that I had checked out. Has anyone else had this? It went away for the most part, if I lay on my side it comes back sometimes. I am seeing a cardiologist on the 7th in a follow up of my recent ER visit which I mentioned here. I wore a holter monitor for 24 hours last week for the appointment. I also had some X-rays done on my spine and back, two doctors mentioned that they thought I had scoliosis, but my mother, a nurse says they are crazy and so do I. I do not have any noticeable curvature. They also said the size of my heart was normal and my lungs were clear (i'm a former smoker). I went to see the surgical guys again for the lump in my back, first they said it was a lipoma, then they said it wasn't, now the chief surgeon says it is so I am going back in six months and will ask them to do a tissue sample, just to be on the safe side. If it is a lipoma, I will opt to have it removed.Anyway, I am sure you are all bored to hear about my health but I figured I would talk about it in case anyone else had similar problems.
