So I think I have skin tags, but none of my doctors want to look! They are all waiting for me to see a gynecologist because I have uterine polyps and abnormal bleeding, and I will get lots of attention down there during my first appointment. In the meantime I am sore due to some psoriasis around my anus, and feel frustrated because I am having to use 5-ASA suppositories daily to stop rectal bleeding (or at least most of it). I may have narrowing of my urethra too, because they have ruled out a UTI but it is a little painful to pee. All in all my rear end etc. is giving me grief!
I also have had a low grade fever for a while and my iron stores are low. I have to get them up because my GI is concerned that if I have surgery for the polyps I will have problems because of the low iron. I am about to start pregnancy vitamins, and considering putting them on the counter with no comment to scare my husband!!
Anyway, I think things are as they should be, but I am tired and cranky!!
