The White Spots On My Pelvic Ultrasound Make Sense

I pressed each foot against a metal foot strap, I tried to wiggle my bare bottom to the end of the OB table.

I find it unbelievable that it is already May 17th.

During my last March OB appointment, I was not surprised when I loudly moaned as my doctor began to press around my pelvic region.

The tenderness of my pelvic area caused my doctor to insist that I have a pelvic ultrasound.

What Is A Pelvic Ultrasound?

A pelvic ultrasound is a medical test that uses sound waves to create images of the organs inside your pelvis.

In women, a pelvic ultrasound enables a doctor to view images of their:

  • Bladder
  • Cervix
  • Fallopian Tubes
  • Ovaries
  • Vagina

My tears, disheveled demeanor as I blurted about my husband’s upcoming brain surgery to my OB was the reason she agreed a pelvic ultrasound could wait. My doctor and I decided that I would wait no more than sixty days.

My sixty days full of emotions pass. Thankfully, my husband successfully survived brain surgery, cheers!

The following web link is to my husband’s story of water in the ear to brain surgery within 90 days. Ugh, you can’t make these stories up!

Also, another bravo to the talented neurosurgeon who saved my husband’s life, Dr. Geoffrey Coble!

Back to my OB story. The ultrasound technician who walked me into the small ten by ten tinted window room was probably overwhelmed by my need to overshare our families new medical hurdles.

I blurt out my medical history to the polite ultrasound lady.

I sense she was most likely taken back by my medical candidness.

The ultrasound technician made me feel comfortable as she shared each part of my anatomy that appeared on her screen.

I asked if she could see any eggs in my ovaries.

She softly replied, both my ovaries were empty.

Oh, I said.

The lady politely inquired if I had children.

As I offered information about my two daughters, I noted how happy this woman was for me.

Then I stared at the ultrasound screen, and I noticed several areas that showed white specs.

I asked the technician about the white areas on the screen.

She said that the white spots were from calcification.

Calcification? I questioned.

Before she can answer me, I responded to my own question.

I said time marches on hence my calcification.

She smiled as she answered yes.

After my ultrasound appointment I know I am not pregnant, I am not going to be pregnant, and my uterus is getting old.

I am nervous when I saw my doctor’s phone number flash on my phone several days later.

I asked the doctor if this phone call was good news because I am not able to take much more.

Yes, the news is good, Lisa, my doctor replied. She went on to tell me that my pelvic ultrasound looks terrific.

I am thankfully for the good news.

Medical news from my OB in the past has not always been on a good note.
