Being a girl sucks

A month ago I had an ultrasound due to pelvic pain and bleeding for a month plus. While on vacation in Orlando I received the call with results... Not an ideal call. They told me I had a cyst on my right ovary and uterine polyps. Once I got back home I started the process for scheduling the required appointments -- something that truly frustrated me.

With appointments scheduled all I could do is wait. They wanted a follow-up u/s in 6 to 8 weeks and a hysteroscopy as soon as possible.

Last Monday I developed severe abdominal pain where I couldn't function. I stuck it out as long as possible taking care of the kids... See the post from last Tuesday. I was admitted to paoli hospital with a ruptured 4cm cyst.

So now that the cyst is gone it is time to deal with the uterine polyps. After getting no sleep last night, I'm waiting for the dreaded Gyn for a hysteroscopy. It is cold in the waiting room and I'm nervous about how much this will hurt. I can take pain but anything in that region scares me. I don't ever want to hear a doc say "This will only be a little pressure or a pinch" when you nearly pass out from the pain. It would be nice if you bitch-slap them and say "That was just a little bit of pressure".

Time to go back... Wish me luck.
