After enduring two days of questions like "Who knocked you up?", I finally went in yesterday to have an abdominal ultrasound. Had some serious heartburn back in November (now gone) and my doctor wanted to see if I had gall stones. First thing off the bat was that I was shocked the hospital gown fit. Always hear horror stories about people's rear end sticking out. Mine stayed covered. As for the procedure, it was kind of an odd sensation...they squirt some warm gel all over your abdomen and move this wand back and forth, first on the right side, then on the front and finally on my left side. Had to suck in air a bunch of times, presumably so they could get a better read of the organs. I have to admit it kinda freaked me out that this tech was able to look at my insides, but wasn't qualified to tell me what she saw, if anything. (She claims she saw nothing, but I don't trust her. ) The radiologist reviews the pictures and gets back to my doctor. They captured 59 images during the procedure. Don't know if that's normal, good or bad. Anyhow, I guess I'll start bugging my doctor for the test results tomorrow.
