These Things Only Happen To Me

February 18, 2010

I really thought I was just down with the flu. I had a fever and I was throwing up. Oh, and I have a bump. A large one. Down there. I finally decided to see the doctor.

“Hmm…” the Doctor says while she is down south, “I don’t know what I am looking at.” Not exactly what you want to hear from your doctor. Ever.

“I am going to refer you to see a specialist”. She sends me down the street to a gynecologist. I called my then boyfriend, now husband and sobbed hysterically into the phone “they don’t know what is wrong with me! I am going to die of cancer!” (What? That’s what always happens in the lifetime movies.)

Some antibiotics are prescribed “if you are dying by tomorrow, check yourself into the hospital, I will have the nurse hold you a room at Arlington Memorial. Well, I wore up the next day and couldn’t walk. So in I went. They ran tests on me initially because the lump was so big they thought it might be a hernia. No. I just had a giant cyst in my va-jay-jay area that was the size of a grapefruit. No big deal. Surgery. A week recovery. Good as new.

That was three years ago.

Flash forward 3 days before my wedding and I have a golf ball size lump in the same area.



These things only happen to me I swear.



Update: Apparently, I have another cyst that got abcessed my choices are: get an emergency out patient surgery on Friday. Or get an emergency out-patient surgery on Monday. Right now I am holding out for surgery on Monday. So… no tight jeans and comfy padded seats. Thanks for the concern folks! Love you ladies!

    It could be an in-grown hair. Look ‘in-grown hair’ up in ‘that area’ and see if it describes what you have. Just keep it covered and it will go away! Unfortunately, it will go away slowly. But, don’t distress!
