Things You Don't Want to Hear at a Doctor's Appointment

Things You Don't Want to Hear at a Doctor's Appointment: 

#1:  "Let me get a couple other doctors in here to look at this."

I'm sure everyone has seen the Friends episode with the 3rd nipple? 

That's how my doctor's appointment was this morning.

It turns out that I didn't pull a stitch.  I've (nunquam securus!) managed to develop a really really gross abscess that has absolutely nothing to do with my c-section incision, except that they are in the same universe.

Don't worry, I won't subject you to a photo... but the bad news is, I'm on antibiotics six times a day, and if it doesn't go away by next Wednesday, I have to have it surgically removed.  SURGICALLY REMOVED.


My doctor (who I love), called it a "goomba", and had two other doctors and two med students in to take a look and discuss what it was.

If I have to have a freaking abscess drained, I definitely am cursed!

  1. oh no! Is your fever gone yet? I know when my brother in law had a mystery infection his fever broke almost immediately upon taking antibiotics, but it was interveinous so I don't know if you got that or the pills! Get better mama!
