Another doctor's visit

I spent a good portion of today at the Urologist's office, having more tests done. The good news is I don't have kidney stones, cysts on my bladder, or cancer. Whew! The bad news is there are protein cells in my urine and he doesn't know why. So I have to go to yet another doctor. This time it is a nephrologist, to make sure my kidneys are functioning properly. Apparently it is not normal to have any protein in your urine at all and we need to find out the reason for it. I'm getting tired of going to the doctor. It is hard to schedule appointments so I don't have to miss work, and overall it is draining emotionally. I am not sure if my primary doc will sign off on my medical form before I see the specialist, so there's a chance this could hold us up for quite a bit longer. I want this to be done so badly. It doesn't look like we're going to make our May deadline. It makes me sad and frustrated. Oh well, what am I gona do?

Damn, that is bad news! I hate going to doctors to begin with, but when they can't figure out what's wrong it is a million times worse. Sorry!!! I hope they figure it out soon and your papers get signed off.

I totally understand your frustration. I hope everything gets figured out quickly and that your paperchase proceeds without further ado.

I remember when I was about 12 I had protein in my urine. I had to have several tests but they turned up nothing. 28 years later (I'm 40, ugh) and it's never been mentioned again. I sure hope they sign off on it soon. I can't even imagine your frustration. Take care.
