Finally, I had my pelvic ultrasound done. I was not scared at all unlike that exam I had 6 days ago. I was so anxious to get the exam done so that I can pee. An hour before the procedure I had to drink this much water so that my bladder will be full. They needed it for the exam. God knew how uncomfortable I was. When we were driving to the clinic I felt like my bladder was going to explode. All I can think of was bathroom. We got to the building and we had to go all the way up to the 11th floor. I know the elevator was fast but my urge to pee made it the slowest elevator ever. We finally got to the clinic and damn my back started hurting. The receptionist said that I can pee but just a little bit not to empty my bladder. Tears ran down my cheeks when I peed and when I tried to stop my pee. I was a little bit better for maybe a minute and after that I had to pee again so bad. And my back started hurting. I sat on the floor didn’t care those people who were looking at me. And at that time I really did not care. The receptionist called me to answer her question and told me that I can pee just a little bit. I cried again. When I was heading toward the waiting area I heard my name called. And that woman who did the exam said, “Please tell me you did not pee.” And I was so honest saying, “Yes, I did. But just a little bit.” We went to the exam room of course with my husband. I heard her saying family members are not allowed but she let my husband in anyway. And so the exciting part started. She did this and that and the first procedure was done. She told me to go to the bathroom to empty my bladder. Here was the problem. I peed and still want to pee but nothing came out. I sat on the toilet for a long time hoping that pee will come out. And I gave up and went to exam room continue the exam. She did her job. Check this and that and told me, “You’re bladder is still full.” I told her, “Yes, this is what will happen to me if I will not pee right away.” When the exam was done she called the doctor and the doctor told me and my husband that she did not see anything that is wrong. My first reaction was, “REALLY! BUT WHY IS IT I AM IN PAIN, RIGHT HERE? She just said, “Well, I don’t know what to tell you.” Ahhh… great! Although there is still question unanswered, I am so grateful of the result. I am still 60% scared though.
