Female Plumbing Update

(Too much information alert: If thinking about internal girly bits makes you queasy, read another post.)

Good news: The cystic ovary I've been worried about is fine; the cyst seems to have resolved.

Neutral news: My mack-daddy fibroid isn't doing anything -- but the doctor wants to watch it, and my uterine lining, more carefully. So I have another appointment with the ultrasound tech in another couple of months.

Needless to say, I was quite relieved this morning...but not totally. I'm still not feeling very friendly toward my reproductive system. And I'll be checking into alternative ways of improving my health -- diet and activity stuff.

But I shall, as Scarlett O'Hara would say, think about that tomorrow. Today, after my appointment -- my head pounding and my muscles actually sore from stress -- naps and chocolate were in order. I was beat.

Thanks to all for your thoughts and prayers. They helped.

I just got caught up. So glad the cyst is gone and the fibroid isn't doing anything.

Dark chocolate shrinks fibroids, you know.

Good to hear this. Naps and chocolate are good for the soul.

Good news indeed... and I'm with Zorra - I am sure that dark chocolate fixes stuff.
