    Hi Tes,
    I have not heard from you and I have been wondering how you are?? I hope all is well. Did you receive your test results back? I had my Hida Scan last week and have not talked to the Doctor about the results. Take care.

    Although I haven't written to you, I have thought of you. I get my results on Wednesday, so we'll see what he has to say. I don't think I'm going to go into his office because we are having a tough time with this SARS thing. Has anyone gotten affected in your area. There has been several hospitals in my area that have closed because of this. It is soooooo scary. I had an appointment scheduled today with a rheumatologist and had to cancel because his building was affected. I have been waiting for this appointment for 4 months and now have to wait until July. Really sucks!!! Anyhow, was the HIDA test o.k. It didn't hurt but it was a boring test. How are your ribs? I actually had a better week but am starting to feel it act up again. Let me know how you are doing. Talk to you soon. Tes

    Hi Tes,
    The HIDA scan was really not that bad. I was there a total of about 2hrs. I was hearing these horror stories on how the test could last 6 hours. I could not imagine laying there flat on my back for more than 2 hours.. I still have not gotten my results back from my ultrasound or my HIDA. If I do not hear from my doctor by this afternoon, I am going to call them. That really stinks you were not able to go to that doctor appointment and now have to wait until July. I guess that SARS is really a scary thing. Are there cases in Canada? My pain has seemed a little better the past few days, but today I seem to be hurting more again. We know how this is such a mystery illness. You never know how you are going to feel from day to day..
    Please let me know what your HIDA scan showed, and I will email you as soon as I find out my results. Take care of yourself.

    How are you? I haven't heard from you in awhile. Have you gotten your HIDA scan results back? I didn't end up going to the doctor for my results because of this SARS epidemic. I want to stay as far away possible from medical centers. It has gotten out of control here. It is so scary. I am going to wait about a week and I will make another appointment. My specialist won't give me the results over the phone. How have you been feeling? I am doing better than I was 3 weeks ago, although I still have rib pain and alot of gas. Post back when you get a free minute. Take care, Tes.

    Hi Tes,
    Good to hear from you!! I did get my HIDA scan results back and everything was fine. That is awful you have not been able to get your results yet. How come they cannot discuss them over the phone with you? That SARS is very scary. I have been hearing so much of it being in Canada. I do not blame you for staying away from Medical Centers. I did not have to go into the Doctors for my results, they just called me with them. Who knows now what was causing that terrific rib pain. It has been better this past week than it has in a long time. I am just wondering if I had some sort of rib inflammation that was causing all this pain. Who knows. I have only had to take Advil a few times in the past week for the pain so I have been happy about that. You know how it goes, one day you are feeling pretty good and the next you have the pain. Please let me know what your Hida scan results were when you get them. Take care of yourself and I will post again soon.
