So about 10 days ago I discovered a lump on my back. The exact same looking kind of lump my dad had when he was diagnosed with Lymphoma…needless to say I had a giant meltdown of scare.
My mom after looking at the lump said to call my Dr which I did and made an appt for yesterday morning.
Turns out its an infected cyst(which can happen) and they put me on 2 weeks of antibiotics before they remove it in December. All things are OK just a scare.
It got me thinking though about how careful we should be when we notice something on our bodies that just aren’t right. We know our bodies best and know when something is out of the norm. It is SO important to be safe than sorry because you don’t want to push things back or say its not a big deal to avoid a Dr bill or to avoid possible bad news. Take what my family has gone through this past year as reason enough to go to the Dr when something is not right.
You can really never be too careful.
Thank you everyone for your prayers and good thoughts for me yesterday. While I did not think it was anything deadly or really bad I just really hate going to the Dr and I honestly need to have a few months where there is only good health news.
Also for those of you contributing to the twitter conversation Saturday night about those painful under the skin zits that hurt my Dr gave me a cortisone shot(yes in my face…hurt like a mofo) and its almost gone! He said if I get another to come in and it only takes a second….ummm yes this will be happening from now on. Just a little info from me to you guys!
And because we all need a laugh
Have a great Tuesday!
Do you go to the Dr when you notice something is wrong? Are you a rather be safe than sorry person?
