Right, so this was the quickest gynae check-up ever.
Literally just a scan and blood pressure check up (100/60), glands, and so on.
So... last time I had two cysts - both 3.5 cm.
This time one has disappeared but the other is 3.94 cm. Despite me being on the patch to keep things in check.
He's added some more meds to the arsenal and I need to go back again in 3 months. And then "we will have to drain that cyst". He means laparoscopy. I checked.
So we had the talk about stress and... I cried.
Not a good start.
But he was very kind and suggested that I get another job if this one is too stressful but probably not a good idea to just leave as that could increase the stress and grow the cyst/s.
(I look at my shine necklace every day and wonder if I actually heard God properly...)
That's why I went to Spanish dance again yesterday and I'm getting kitted out (shoes and skirt) so I can't chicken out :)
aside... in "my day" I'm sure I paid R80 for my skirt. These days........... R700! Shoes...........R500. I didn't even ask about castanets. Thank goodness I kept mine. But once I get good again, I want to buy some nice, expensive ones. The sound is much better on the decent ones. Again, in "my day" I think we paid about R40 - R50 for castanets. I see they're about R850 now.
I did one brave thing yesterday. I told new boss an abridged version of gynae events and that this is not good for my health. Full story here.
So I've yet to fill the prescription but I've got to get this stress sorted. Pronto.
Much as I sometimes daydream of lying around reading for a week solid, I know this is not the way to get that time out!
When was your last lady check-up?
PS interview wasn't great but D says keep thinking positive. So +ve it is.........
