Once again my petscan did not happen, when I got there they went to take my stats and it showed my blood pressure down to 80/45 and we knew that was not right so she took it again it was 83/45 lol so she said it must be the cup so they gave me the medication I sat there without saying a word for one hour then back to the room. They got me under with no problems, the breathing tube went in fine and every thing was going very well. I woke up about 1 1/2 hours late to fine out that I did not get the petscan, I asked why and he said they could not stablelize my blood pressure it would be at 59/25 when I came to it was like 45/25 and again he knew by looking at me it was not right. He said it was the blood pressure mechaine and my size, I fit into the mechaine fine but my arms would touch the wall so when he tried to inflate the the arm cup it would press against the mechaine and would not inflate. I was so mortified I went from a 6x to a 3x I was over 400 ponds and now I am 360 pounds which is 9 pounds lighter than three weeks ago. It just crushed me and even though I did not want to but the tears came anyway. The nurse, technition, and doctor all tried to tell me it was ok it was not a problem but you know it just hurt I felt like a hug fat pig and when I got up this morning I did not feel that way at all I put on a shirt that I have not worn in 5 years because I was so big so I left the house feeling so good about the weight I lost. They are going to try again but putting a lead into my artery to monitor my blood preassure that way but they have to bring in a different mechaine and they would need about three more nurses. so I have to wait to see if my doctor will let me try again I sent an email telling them I so want to do this so we leave no stone unturned. I am going to call John from my insurance and plead with him for another one which should be fine thay have been good with about it so far. Thanks for letting me vent.
Love, Hugs, and today tears
