Doctor visit update

Wanted to update ya’ll on the latest concerning the discovery of a cyst in one of yours truly’s organs.  My dr. visit was yesterday afternoon.

The dr. told me that at the size the cyst is now (3 centimeters) that it’s ok if we just monitor it in the next six months.  She said I could opt to have surgery if I wanted to (invasive or otherwise – but I’d have to consult with a surgeon) if it was giving me pain or we could do another ultrasound in 6 months to determine if it’s getting bigger.  She said if it continues to grow then we’d probably need to do something about it via surgery.   She empasized even at that though that I should only have it removed if it really bothers me that it’s there or if it’s causing pain.  She said it is not disturbing any normal body function.

Another reason I’m going to wait six months before I do anything about this is because the company I work for just changed health insurance plans and I don’t think my doctor or the medical group she’s in is in network (sigh).  I still have to read up more on it.  I hate that this happened right in the middle of the issues I have going on, but at the same time I think that I’m just happy to have healthcare coverage.

Anyway, the good news is we are in the “monitoring” stage.  The only reason I would visit the dr. before the six month period is if I am having pain.  I have not had that pain since the one time where I had to go to the ER, thank goodness.

Thanks again for all the good thoughts and prayers. They definitely helped!
