I’ve really had no major medical complaints over the last few years. Sure, my thyroids been off, I’ve been very anemic, heavy periods but not too many cramps. Let me repeat that…not too many cramps. Yes, my last surgery and my lifestyle changes have helped me keep the surgeon away!
The last 4 months, I’ve started to gradually get more and more cramping. Mostly in my legs, down the sides and to the bottoms of my feet. Not fun at all! Last month I felt like a hot iron was being stuck in and twisted in my lower back. That was new, well, it’s an old feeling but new. Damn! It really was painful and started days before I got my period, which came almost a week late. No I wasn’t worried about pregnancy lol. I was happy or didn’t come. In fact I’m praying for an early menopause. I’ve even been seriously considering the hysterectomy next year. Evict that bitch!
So I began spotting and bleeding really for about 5 days. That sucked. It’s very inconvenient to bleed when it’s not time, so I thought about it and I had heard about women that bleed or spot during ovulation. Oh wait, was that me? Hmmm. Probably. Oh crap! It’s back! Damn! So I made an appointment. I needed a follow up pap anyway, because of course, my last one was abnormal again. The colposcopy was fine though. So off I went!
And I knew exactly what I was going to hear.
Ultrasound scheduled. That was today.
I watched the entire sono, they have a screen on the wall in this office. So I was basically telling the Sonographer what was there. We had some good laughs as she was measuring things. Too many things! Then she had a strange look on her face. I’m sure she was perplexed a bit. I finally helped her out and asked if she could find my left ovary. Was it behind my uterus? Nope. Was it behind my bladder? Oh wait, no. Hey, yes please, push really hard on my belly to find it! There it is. Unremarkable lol.
Then off to the office to see the Doctor. Guess what he said!
I have a possible endometrioma and a fibroid. No shit Sherlock. I saw that already!
So what does he say. Let’s repeat this in 3 months. Have you considered the birth control pill (sure if I wanna die because I have clotting issues) or Lupron (no fucking way-sorry for cursing).
Fun day! That was a waste of 2 hours of my life lol.
