On we go with the never ending parade of doctors and tests. During my hospital stay, a CT scan showed an abnormality on my adrenal gland. About six weeks later I had a slightly different, but more focused CT scan done of the area. This scan showed an adenoma, a small growth almost certainly benign. I know this because the interwebs told me so. But the interwebs are not enough and today I went to the endocrinologist.
She told me essentially what the interwebs told me. When CT scans are done, anomalies are often found. Most of them are utterly innocuous. This adenoma has all the signs of being a nothing burger. However, just to be sure, in case I am the unluckiest man on the planet, I need to have blood and saliva tests.
The tests will be done at a blood lab in the local Safeway. Right next to the condiments section, no doubt.
The doctor said the adenoma had nothing to do with my blood clots.
I really need to get off this hamster wheel soon or they’ll be sending me to McDonalds for x-rays.
Tomorrow I go to the pulmonologist. I’m going to see if I can order a shake while I’m there.
Right now I am going for a bike ride. I need one.
