Default Spent yesterday in the ER.

Spent the entire day in the ER - at two different hospitals - for severe abdomen pain. Had a CAT scan and ultrasound done, where they found a cyst the size of a grapefruit - around 10 centimeters big. It is a dermoid cyst and if you haven't heard/seen of them before, I warn you: CREEEEEEPY!!!

They could have done the surgery to remove it last night, but the DR said it would be better to have it scheduled and have everything ready to go. With that being said, I'll have it removed next Monday! I got tomorrow afternoon for pre-op, blood work, etc.

It kind of makes sense now why I didn't have an appetite at all last week. I had to make myself eat every day and would get full after a few bites, but I'm glad I may have found the reason why that was happening!

Ooo those thing*are* creepy. Glad they figured out what was going on and that they can fix it, though surgery is always kind of scary. Lots of good thoughts for you!!

Thanks! I don't think I've ever been in so much pain, but I'm so much better today. I woke up from a 2.5 hour nap not long ago and it was such an awesome nap.

LOL! Maybe I should have done more of a warning. I wish I could have seen my pastor's face when he googled it He didn't believe my mom when she told him what it was, but he texted her a few minutes later saying his daughter had showed him some pictures and it was disgusting. From what I've been told he almost got sick and his face was funny (per his daughter).

He calls it "my critter" now, lol!

There could be a naming thread!!


I'll also add:

I'm glad you know what's going on. Sending 'surgery go good' vibes. Do you know what the estimated recovery time is?

You guys! That's gross! Keeping it in a jar! OMG!

Hey Nikki, I'm so glad that it's nothing serious and it can be removed. Sorry about all the pain though, that it has caused. That will be over soon! Yeah! Best of luck in surgery. I hope everything goes smoothly for you. Hang in there.
