My doctor ordered the initial bone scan, a DEXA bone scan to rule out osteoporosis and osteopenia, and also a ton of blood tests to check my blood calcium and thyroid function.
Osteopenia. Ahhhsteopeenia. Something penia. Sounds dirty to me.. I actually laughed when my doctor said it. Yes, I have the maturity of a seven year old.
Speaking of being inappropriate at the doctors, I have a history of saying inappropriate things to my doctor because I get nervous and try to be funny.
Doctor: "Are you sexually active?"
Me: "No, I just lie there."
When discussing why my previous doctor didn't do breast exams, I pretty much shouted
"Doesn't anyone want to feel my boobs!"
So when I was at the bone scan on Friday, the guy said (referring to the area of uptake on the scan)
"Well, it's pretty big, but I've seen bigger!"
My eyes got wide, and I opened and closed my mouth a few times, and then (here's where I'm really proud of myself) DIDN'T say "THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID!!!" It was the most self-control I've ever exhibited.
