So what else could be wrong with me?
My doctor’s office called (the normal doctor, not one of my cardiologists,) this morning. I went in for my physical in late June or so, complete with internal exam and pap and such. Oh the fun of it all.
Now it seems that something strange or mildly to be of concern has appeared, although I don’t really know what, and I’m not going to worry about it right now… The doctor wants me to come back in for another pap in six months, instead of a year like normal. So in February back I go.
Am I worried? Should I be? The doctor tries not to put you through these exams more than once a year because they are intrusive and nobody really wants to get them done… the only reason she would want me back is if she saw something a bit odd and wants to follow up on it, see if anything has changed. It obviously isn’t enough to be really worried about, since she doesn’t want me to come back in right away… but there is some cause for concern.
So my procedure date is December 6th. I have to figure out between now and then how to save up some money to help my mom fly out here for that. I also have to work to not get freaked out about it, since it’s a relatively simple procedure.
So, what else? Might as well pile it all on this week. Figure out how much more I can handle before I break, or something. I’ve still got some strength left. Bring it on.
