Well as my Husband told me "You are never boring"! So today in my glamorous life, I had a Urine test. Yea, it was so amazing, jealous?
I started my new prescription of MetforminER on Sunday night (Jan 15th) when I woke up Monday morning (TMI - who am I kidding this whole blog is TMI) urination was painful, Tuesday it was worse and so on. I walked on my lunch hour 6 blocks to Northwestern after speaking to my endocrinologists assistant. This of course is not a typical side effect..... I needed to have a culture done.
I waited for about 10 minutes with a patient in the waiting room snoring loudly. This man taking up 2 chairs in the waiting room his hand on his crotch, mouth open snoring. It was kinda of laughable and kinda sad - maybe's he's really sick.... you just don't know.
The lab tech came and got me and off I went. I was given overly detailed instructions which equated to "pee in this cup". It all went fine, the bathroom was clean.
I just got a call from the lab and the dip stick test was negative - but they are sending the culture off for further tests to see if there are any trace amounts of bacteria. So here we go again waiting for more results.
