Medical Update 5/16/24

Phew. This week has been busy.

You may remember that I had to have my truck towed to my Cousins Automotive Shop for repairs.

In the meantime, I drove a teenage girl’s car, which was filled with Pink Seats and a pink Steering Wheel. It smelled like a rainforest filled with Unicorns, Rainbows, and Cotton candy Clouds. —I pulled over every thirty miles to throw up.

People pointed and laughed at me as I drove.

I’ve had a doctor’s appointment for four of the past five days.

I’ll talk about two of my doctor appointments because they are the important ones to me.

My Urologist put me on an Antibiotic for a Kidney Infection.

Everything else is okay with my Urinary System.

The next doctor was my Colorectal Doctor. —”My Colostomy Doc.”

I asked him tons of Colostomy Questions, such as “What are the chances I’ll get Colon Cancer.”

I asked because I do not have much of my Colon left. It’s all been either cut out and thrown away or used for my Urinary System. 

The Intersusseption of the Bowel I had at ten years old didn’t help either. I don’t know if the Colon and Bowel are connected, but I do know they cut almost one foot of Bowel out when I had that happen.

The doctor told me not to worry about Colon Cancer at all because my Colon looked great. I didn’t even have a Polyp.

He also said I didn’t have to return for a Colonoscopy for ten more years.

I asked how long I should wait before going to the Hospital if my Colostomy stopped putting anything out. —That’s a sign of a Bowel Blockage.

There are things about Bowel Obstruction that I know about but cannot put into words here. So, I’ll cut to the chase.

He said if I’ve been eating, and I know I should be “putting out,” then give it thirty-six hours to “pass” before going to the E.R.

Of course, I can also call his office and talk to him or one of the other doctors there.

I asked him about my “Steak and Potatoes” diet and he said that I should stay on that diet. 

He agreed that I was in a “Rock and a Hard Place” because too much Red Meat is bad for you, but in my case, I have to do what I have to do.

He said I could come back and see him once a year or see him on an “as-needed” basis. I’ve been seeing him on an “as-needed” basis.

I told him I’d think about which one I wanted to do. I already have so many doctors to see.

I then spent the next hour or so on a Wild Goose Chase for a Chinese Buffett Restaurant.

I found one. I’m too pooped to write about it tonight, though.

That’s all for now.

Love you,


P.S. – I got my truck back today. No more Pink. People still point and laugh for some reason, though.
