pulling a stop

Thursday, March 29, 2018

I am pulling a stop! Everything feels like too much and is starting to be have to instead of want to. 3 days - I want three days off. then I come back and start again. I will start where I left off and be mindful not to go over board in the meantime. But right now I feel like I need to stop!

Secondly, at the doctors office I got the best news ever so now that I am done with that I can share....

A little over 6 month ago I got called back on my mammogram results. They found something and wanted to take another look. The second look showed the same... something there that was not suppose to be. The dr. did a tiny biopsy and let me tell you he was really good. I was done before I new it and unlike what they told me - it did NOT hurt at all. Again, the dr. was really good. He called me back one day later, they don't like people to wait on results like this he said... it was NOT cancer, but... it had to come out. They didn't like the shape of it. Apparently if it had been regular round they would have left it alone, but as it had jagged edges with kind of spikes it needed to go. They called it a papilloma, (the spelling is off), that's what it sounds like when you say the word. ... and the nurse told me if you have to have something like this, this is the best kind. Again, because it is not cancer!

I had the surgery, basically a bigger biopsy within two weeks, that's how long it took the insurance mainly to give the go. It was a surgery this time and was not without it's own complications as I don't do well with sedation. Apparently I don't like waking up.
They took everything and left me with a 2 1/2 inch scar over my right breast. Yesterday I had my 6 month follow-up and got the all clear. .. with the lets hope we don't see each other again. lol

I am happy it turned out this way, but deep down I really was never worried. Right from the start they said it was not cancer and everything else can be dealt with. Now that that is done I can clear up my regular dr. mess. Let me tell you, having to change doctors is a pain in the rear and when the doctor you select retires within a week of transfer it's a bigger mess. So that is what's on my plate this coming month. Plus I found out yesterday I now have to also find a new women's health professional since I no longer can be seen at the clinic on base. (doctor shortage) Bummer, I really liked them.

    I'm so thankful your health scare was not super serious. Any surgery is dangerous though so I'm glad you came through ok. Life sent you a blow and you handled it well. Seems we're always stronger than we initially think we are. Make yourself a priority.

    What a relief that they found it early, determined it wasn't cancer, and were able to quickly do the surgery! Having the 6-month followup turn out well means it is something you can file under "something interesting happened to me once" and not have to worry about it!

    Personally, i think it is 'healthy' if not advisable to take a break .... Employees do it every week; it's called the weekend and then there are Vacation days ... and holidays. ... We are not robots meant to be wound up and expected to perform 24/7 ........ so you enjoy your time ..... Glad your news was good!! ....
    (I also had a favorite Doctor who had to retire early due to a major heart attack, so i understand your feelings. Best wishes though for a favorable outcome.

    I am so glad that everything worked out for you. I am sorry about the changing doctors. I am in that problem and it is not fun. Good luck to us both in finding a doctor who is available, kind, and great.

    I can so relate to an over whelming life.
    Take 'Me Time'. I failed to do that and am now seeing I needed that 'emotional recharge'. Take time when you need to!

    I'm glad it all turned out well for you! I'm changing doctors too. I'm not happy about it, but my doctor is retiring also. I'm not sure where to go.
