I plan to write more about my doctor’s appointments from yesterday, but I am still too tired. The whole thing was over four hours long and there were many unexpected emotional triggers. I need to write them and process everything to help bring calm to my mind. I am recovering from all of the sensory issues I had as well. I knew that it was going to be a lot on my body, but I had not expected it to be so intense and painful at times.
So the good news.
The mass in my breast is nothing to be concerned about. It is just one of those womanly blumpy bumps we get. There is more to my mammogram experience - it did not go as smoothly as I am writing now, but the bottom line is all is well. They did do an ultrasound and it revealed that I have nothing wrong. The only thing they found was the laceration and at this point, the doctor does not feel that it is anything to be concerned with. He did find it very odd to not find anything in there. No polyps, cysts, nothing on my cervix, everything looked all right.
He did give me medication to try to help with my abnormal bleeding.
The biggest concern at the moment is that I will become anemic, but I show the symptoms of already being anemic. I will supplement and add certain things to my diet to help me with that since I cannot take iron pills. I have such a hard time even low doses in vitamins. I will play around and see what I can do to help. He did suggest several procedures to help me, but being that I do not have insurance it is not feasible at this time.
I am a little frustrated because I have gone through this before.
I do not seem to have anything wrong with me, but my body acts otherwise. It has happened to me throughout my life, only later to discover something. I hope that is not the case here. I will bask in the fact that my body looks ok and overall I am healthy. I am working on getting insurance for myself, after I maintain some sort of benefits, I do plan to get a physical and probably have some blood work done. For now, I will sit and be thankful. Thank you all for your support, prayers, and positivity!
I know that it made a difference and it helped me to stay positive too!
P.S. I will reply to comments soon!
