what a LEMON.....

Today started out just like every other day….Kaz woke me up, I wanted to sleep longer so I said “10 more minutes”! When he woke me up, I immediately had to use the bathroom just like every other morning! I hate getting up in the middle of the night, so I usually hold the bathroom as long as I can until I get up. Nothing was different this morning…Since I do that, my stomach always hurts but then the hurt goes away. This morning, it didn’t. It actually hurt so bad in the lower part of my stomach I couldn’t even stand up. I was bent over in pain.

I layed in bed holding my stomach and told Kaz that I needed to go to the doctor. Kaz asked if it was gas pains, I said no but in my mind I kept thinking “Am I making a big deal out of this? What if it is gas pains then I will feel like an idiot”…but the pain was so intense surly it wasn’t gas.

At the doctors office, several test were run and then an ultrasound. My doctor couldn’t believe what she saw on the ultrasound. There was so much fluid around and in my cervix…She said a cyst had burst. BUT get this…She said they rarely see this much fluid because cyst this big usually causes so much pain that women go to the emergency room and have to have them surgically removed. She said it was the size of a lemon! A LEMON!

Are you serious? I’ve heard of women having cyst the size of grapefruits but never thought it would happen to me let alone actually burst! Wow! So I started laughing after the shock, and looked at Kaz and said, “See I told you it wasn’t gas!” Lol!

I’ve always had problems with cyst…I have actually come to hate them but there’s nothing I can do about them! They are just a part of me:)

So needless to say, a lemon has a totally different meaning to me….I’m doing good. I’m not in any more pain just a real uncomfortable feeling but that’s normal!

What’s your Tuesday been like?

The Longs in Italy.... said...

Girl, I am so very sorry! I know how bad those can be. I had 2 at one time when I was 16, one that burst and it was the worst pain ever! I then had another that was 10 cm when I got here to Italy. Lets just say the Italian hospital is not fun, especially for a week, and not knowing what they were saying half the time!

Boo to cyst!

I hope your week gets better! Take care of youself!
It is finally warming up here but still not as nice as it is in SC!

Oh my gosh! Well I guess it's better you found out about it this way rather than having worse pain and surgery for it. That must have been quite a shock!
