lady-bits and another shrew

No cysts or other odd lumps and bumps. Which is very good.

But still leaves as a mystery the source of the excruciating mid-cycle pain I get on one side of my abdomen; literally like someone suddenly sticking a knife in and twisting it -it's incapacitating. I am thinking probably just random endometriosis, which requires laser-surgery to get burn it off - and is very simple, as Liss commented.

I've had it before and it did help - but the general anasthetic knocked me off balance for quite a while afterwards. So not that keen, really.

Sorry chaps. Bit of a lady-bits related post, really.

Back home now. Only one dead shrew so far. I have cheques to write and then I am going for a snooze.

  2. Pleased that the medical profession found no unexpected lumps or bumps.

    Mother-in-law suffered from endometriosis and will still describe at length the pain it caused. Sympathies.

    Lol - I always have to lie down after writing cheques too!

  4. Glad there weren't any weird lumps..

    which reminds me I'm due for a check-up soon. :-(

    Laughing out loud at your shrew stuff, by the way. I sort of envy you, oddly, my cat's too old for that sort of thing now.

  8. Agreed - Not only do I dislike the effects of general anesthesia, but I am also rather phobic about it.

    You seem to have an infinite supply of shrews. Which is good, really, because they eat insects. They are terroristic little b*stards...pure carnivores, and really mean. The only thing that keeps us from being terrified of them is their tiny size. Kind of poignant.

  10. It couldn't just be really hard ovulation pain, could it?

    Before I'd ever heard that some women can feel when they ovulate, I had weird stabby pains on my right side about mid-way through my cycle for several months. Then I heard about ovulation pain and thought, great! I know when I'm ovulating. Of course, I've never felt it since.

  12. Cheryl - I hadn't thought of adhesions. I've got to go back to the GP in ten days to discuss the scan results, and I suppose to see what the next step might be. It's all rather complicated because I should really change GP, it now being an hour and ten minutes drive to the surgery. But I don't really want to change mid-investigations or mid-adoption process. Urgh.

    Onyxblue - I think some of it is related to ovulation; but it happens fairly randomly, not just at one point in the month - so unless I am dispensing eggs like a chicken I don't think it can *just* be that ...

    All suggestions gratefully welcomed - I am very happy to look for alterntives to being chopped open and peered at by a man wielding a laser-thingy.
