Jenny,31, live in Montana..
I've been coming to this site for about a yr when I got dx'd with crohn's. Had 3 surgeries last year for it and am currently "flaring".
About 3 yrs ago, I found a lump in my right breast and they did an ultrasound and said it was a fibroid adnoma, it was smooth, round, solid and it moved around.. so my family doc said it wasnt anything to worry about.. This year I started having pain/tenderness and while at the ER for crohns (was staying w/my friend while I healed from the surgeries in Utah) I told the doc about it~ he freaked and said "OMG, this needs to be checked NOW" scarring the living daylight out of me and scheduled a mammogram, in Jan '04.. but I moved back home before my appt, Well it stopped hurting since and I just watched it to see if it was changing and it wasnt.. so I didnt bring it up again till a few wks ago to my family doc, she told me I had endometrisos because of other symptoms and when I said I wanted the lump checked, removed, whatever!, cuz I can't sleep at nite~ worried.... She said "Lets not worry about that right now, lets get this other stuff under control first" Soo, I left dazed and confused.. and still worried about this lump, It hurts to the point I cant even touch that breast and not to mention both breasts are now tender and I cant even hug a pillow without screaming in pain! I take pain medicine for crohn's disease and it helps that, but doesnt even touch the pain in my breasts.. I have an appt, on the 9th of sept with a GYNO finally maybe he can put my mind at ease, I think not knowing is the worst!
Thank you for listening to my rambling, ALL OF YOU are in my prayers and I hope you all good health and many happy years to follow!
There are two days in the week about which and upon which I never worry. Two carefree days, kept sacredly free from fear and apprehension. One of these days is Yesterday... And the other day I do not worry about is Tommorrow.
