So let’s just consider this an extension of the last post. You read that post right? 🙂 If you didn’t read it here.
So after just feeling off, I went to the doctor (OB/GYN) and she told me that she felt something in my midsection and ordered me for an ultrasound.
I went in last Tuesday and found out that there IS, in fact, something wrong. I have a cyst (most likely endometrium) that is HUGE and putting pressure on all the inner workings of my body.
The ultrasound proved that the cyst is basically the size of a 5 month pregnancy and about 4 times the size of my bladder.
After consulting with the physician it was agreed that it MUST come out and soon. So next Tuesday I’ll be heading in for surgery to remove the piece of crap that has killed my fall marathon schedule.
Am I relived? Yes. I’m relieved to know that what I was feeling wasn’t just in my head and that there’s a fix for it.
Am I in pain? Yes. But I guess as a mom with a busy life, I just dealt with it and I’m excited at the idea of living without constant pressure and pain.
Am I kicking my self in the ass for not seeing a doctor sooner? YEP. So let this be a lesson to you too. Life moves fast but not fast enough to be an excuse not to take care of ourselves.
So please, say a little prayer that this will all be a thing of the past next week and if you’re feeling like you need to make your doctors appointments…
imagine I’m over here pointing my finger at you and yelling
Because you’re worth the time…
