I went ahead and made an appointment with my GP today. I haven't been in awhile and everything was nicely updated and modern! Anyway, I love Dr. H but he takes FOREVER. However, he had two third year med students in and they hurried the process up.
This cute little med student called me back...he seriously looked 12. I felt SO old...for the first time ever, my health was in the hands of someone who looked like a BABY! Anyway, he asked to get my weight. I gave him a hard time because 8.5 month pregnant women don't want to get on the scales...he started out like 40 lbs less on the scales...I told him that was a good move on his part. LOL. I told him to start at the 170's...and he looked relieved...lol.
He gathered my history and I told him what my OB office said...PUPPPs. I only had to wait about 15 minutes and Dr. H came in with Doogie and another young female med student...I was show and tell. Dr. H had never seen a case of PUPPPs and everyone wanted to see it. Nice. I raised my shirt and Dr. H pointed to my laparoscopy scars and asked what they were from...I told him endo/cyst twice removed and he laughed and said, well the infertility was cured!
Unfortunately, he didn't want to give me a shot...but he prescribed Ultravate cream and I can only use it for 10 days. PUPPPs (if this is indeed PUPPPs) will last MUCH longer than 10 days! So...I just hope this is a very mild case and the rash doesn't spread (like I read that it could).
So, I have a call into my OB to tell them what my GP said and to see if there is anything else I need to do. I can take Benadryl so at least I will have a few good hours of sleep a night!!! I may go bra-less at work (lol...that is where it itches the most)...lol, or maybe not. My tummy is big enough to support them some...
Anyway, I was their first case of PUPPPs...fun times, fun times.
