Dr. Headley confirmed my urinary infection was clear. He listened to my description of the hip pain and ordered an x-ray, the results of which showed severe arthritis in my right (good) hip. But as the days wore on in December the pain got so much worse, I figured I may have a fracture. Anyway, I reminded Dr. Headley about the need to do an additional blood work-up due to the low counts from 2 weeks before.
He had forgotten this until I remembered it but agreed we should do it to be careful. The blood levels for all major categories had dropped again so now Dr. Headley looked very concerned. That's low red, and white cells plus lower than normal platelets. Since I was also having more frequent acid re-flux he referred me for a colonoscopy and EGD exam.
