What's New?

Here comes the worry-wart: I think it's all over for me

So...back went out again after light jogging on a treadmill at 5mph and 1% incline. Thought it was worse than usual, till i started pissing blood.

So i scheduled both appointments, one with a sports medicine doctor to get updated MRIs and get this surgery shit started so i could finally get back to normal

and one with a regular doctor for a kidney infection:

So...worry #1: The right kidney--

For the 9th time in 5 years ive had a massive kidney infection in the right kidney. I thought this was due to large amounts of protein/little water/+ red bull a few years ago, and i was probably right back then

but these days i hardly even use powders, if at all...i rarely work out, so i dont need a shit load of protein. my blood work is fine, kidney function seems normal. CT Scan showed no abnormalities. So what could it be?? last time it happened i was on tren enanthate and apparently 1.5g water wasnt enough...or so i thought

so the culture was sent to my doctor, then to a nephrologist. results will be back sometime soon i hope, then i bet i get scoped up my urethra

concern #2:

My new doctor looks at my old MRIs from the military. comes back with a weird look on his face. He said he thinks ive been misdiagnosed with a herniated disc, and believes now that i have stress fractures in my spine. So i have ordered new MRIs + bone scan (thanks, insurance!)

...now, this is what pisses me off. i was given 10% disability for a herniated disc. stress fractures would be 50%. so i've potentially been walking around, working out, and running with stress fractures in my spine...wtf!?

luckily, if i am diagnosed with this, my disability goes up to 70% and i get 2 years back pay. UNluckily, if i am diagnosed with this, i get to live with it for the rest of my life.

looks like swimmin jacked on juice is my future....and maybe minus a kidney...lol...kinda funny, but not really...

gotta make the most of it :)

Sorry to hear that Kosher. I know you know this already, but make sure you stay on the V.A. like white on rice. I sure as hell hope you still have all of your records from the military. Good luck bro, it'll all work out.

Well, according to my MRIs from 2 years ago, he feels they were originally stress fractures. Who knows now, perhaps degenerative. New MRIs will tell more, plus that damn $2000 bone scan

Havent checked PSAs, but physical exam + blood work was fine except for cholesterol (genetic predisposition)...getting on a recommended statin for that

no worries..i have an "ARMY Pack" with all my medical records and jackets, all scans in digital and paper format, as well as everything down to a damn snotty nose that i needed Afrin for lol...

im definately not throwing in the towel, just in a holding patern at the moment...luckily i have good insurance so i can afford the deductables i have for the procedures..
