I figured it was better to just get to the point in the title.
The two growths were benign granulomas. There wasn’t even endometrium in there, thank god.
They’re not even suture granulomas, because the sutures have long since dissolved. They were just my body being ornery.
I asked my doc if it was [...]
They removed the polyp/granuloma/whatever, and apparently there WAS endometrium (or something that looked like it, anyway) right next to it, and both growths were removed and sent to the lab. I’ll have results next week (they should be entered into my chart, which I can now access online – technology is ridiculous, y’all).
This coming Wednesday, the 25th, I’ll have my pre-op visit.
Two days later, on the 27th, I’ll have my combination surgery/biopsy to remove the stupid tumor-thing.
If my body could stop generating medical bills, that’d be awesome.
I’ll update everyone when I have news.
It turns out that while I may be experiencing symptoms of PMS and an actual period, the bleeding was not, in fact, from endometrium or anything like that.
The short story is that I may have a suture granuloma (rare-ish for the location, because of COURSE it is). The doctor called it a granuloma, then [...]
This month, I’ve experienced the following symptoms (moreso the past week):
bloating migraine w/vertigo and nystagmus unexplained weight gain in short period of time mood change lower abdominal cramping
I attributed them all to different things (mostly gas, exhaustion, and allergies). Then I silently freaked out about why the hell I’m gaining 10 pounds in [...]
Sorry I’m ending these posts with a question mark, but I honestly just don’t know what the hell is going on, right now.
Okay, so my run-of-the-mill Lyme test came back negative.
Before I celebrate, there are a few things I’m keeping in mind:
these tests are inaccurate as hell (see: test that said I [...]
I went to the Lyme doc, today. It was not a happy visit.
It was warm outside, the A/C in our car still doesn’t work, and it’s about an hour drive, so by the time we arrived, I was feeling a bit foggy, and that might have led to the events of the visit, but [...]
My ability to protect myself with lethal force if necessary is so important to me that, despite needing some significant help right now, I’m loathe to seek it because I don’t want to be declared unfit by the state of TN.
I’m not suicidal, if I’m not homicidal, and it doesn’t matter. If I have [...]
I keep getting my Sitemeter stats, and seeing that I get a consistent 200 hits per week, and I’m like, “damn, those people are either reading old stuff, or they’re hoping for an update…” and either way, I figure I should write SOMEthing.
I mean…updates…I’m still sick, still on the doxy/flagyl combo, my kidney infection [...]
Life has been too exciting, lemme tell ya.
I took a week’s worth of cipro for my kidneys, and that was some STRONG stuff, because I ended up getting thrush, despite also taking an anti-fungal and some pro-biotics. That cleared up, though, thankfully.
I had my re-check yesterday, peed in a cup, it was clear, [...]
