Well not only do i have to now worry about the pain that comes with my crohn's (occasionally now, thank god!)..but now i have more to worry about! i went to the ER last night for excruciating pain in my right side..turns out it was another ovarian cyst..and they cant do anything about them! i was on birth control for over 4 years and had to stop in august because i got a blood clot in my lung while being hospitalized for my crohn' obgyn said no way would i be allowed to go back on it for years and years..the ER doctor told me this is most likely going to happen every time i get my period/ going to see my obgyn next week to get this all straightened out and to see if they can do something for my strange situation! right now i'm just doing the pain killer thing, and i honestly dont know what else they can do for me other than that! ugghhh more pain issues to deal with..i'm really starting to get pissed off about how unfair this all is! i'm a good person and shouldn't be tortured with all this pain all the time :( there are many other people out there who deserve to be tortured, me not being one of them lol!!
