I just got back from the doctor's office for my annual exam.
I have a new doctor, of course, because I just moved here a year ago. I like her, and my impression is that she's very thorough.
So as she was feeling around on the outside of my stomach and abdomen, she thought that she felt something.
It could be food. It could be stool. It could be a cyst. And it could be worse.
Now I'm filling my bladder with water in preparation for an ultrasound. I should hear back from the doctor with the results tomorrow-ish.
It's probably nothing. I'd just eaten lunch an hour or so previously, and I've had cysts before, and I've had pap smears annually and they've always been normal.
But I'm still scared.
