    A well-earned coffee, mig.

    They sound to be doing a good, comprehensive job and I hope no op is required.

    I had an ovarian cyst, I had no idea it was there despite it being 3.8 kilos. When I found out it was there well, it wasn't pleasant and I was left firing on one cylinder (so to speak).

    I suspect this is one of the 'benefits' of the constant monitoring, at least you now know it's there, that other steps are being taken and I hope things settle sooner rather than later.

    Isn't life stupidly complicated at times? :roll: DD

    Hi Mig,

    Just popped by to send some hugs ((((((( ))))))). Hope all the other appointments go smoothly, glad to hear that you're getting such good care. Try not to be too anxious about the gynae appointment.....I had similar problems a few years ago, a simple overian cyst was discovered, but they advised that as long as it wasn't producing symptoms to leave well alone, apparently they are quite common.
