Good news: The nurse practitioner was very nice.
Bad news: I *had* a small cyst. It's gone. Problem is, the swelling from it has compressed all the skin/hair pores/follicles around it and they're now full of yuck and soreness and gross.
Good news: Topical meds only needed.
Bad news: I may as well give up wearing pants. Sreiously. The prescription is "warm saline compresses six times a day for three days with XYZ ointmnet after." Ummm.... there's no way to have a warm wet compress there while clothed fully. Seriously. My dignity? It's in a trash can somewhere.
And the final bad news: After 20 minutes with my leg in a very unhappy and exposing position? Oh, it's gonna take more than Tylenol. And I don't get anything but Tylenol.
Still.... Good news, after 2 weeks of increasingly hellish ouchies, another week should see it go bye-bye. If not, then I get the good stuff. WHatever that is.
Put this here bc.... sometimes we need to put it separately.
I was so tired that I fel asleep waiting for the NP to show up. .... *zzzzz* And skipped pain management therapy. Home to put on a compress, to decompress, and to figure out exactly how long it is till I can go to bed for the night!
Soft purrs to your evening/night.
Hi there.I need to vent this out. I’m having a very rough day. The fibro pain is vicious, especially in my ribs and legs. My IBS has been very nasty today too. And over all of that, the depression is crushing me. I know why. Tomorrow is my interview to get the job that I’ve been doing for a year. In all likelihood, I’ve a good chance of getting it. But if I don’t get it,...
