At last I got the gynae visit out of the way…. well, not exactly out of the way yet since I don’t know the results till a week later.
I wanted to schedule the dentist appointment on the same day too but opening the legs and mouth on the same day and waiting for hours to do both just seemed a bit too much so the dentist visit was put off. 😛
The gynae said that my cyst that she saw on the ultrasound 2 years ago is still there. She says that if I am lucky it will go away on its own. She did a tumour marker test again (she did one 2 years ago as well) because she said cysts can go bad overnight. That sounds really scary to me!
“Where were you last year? Forgot to come?”
Actually I did not look forward to the visit and had procrastinated for a year! Terrible isn’t it? Taking your own health for granted like that. I hate these visits because of the time it takes and also because of the fear. Fear of discovering bad or negative news that may turn my world upside down. That is why I keep putting off these visits. I really should be more regular with the visits since I have a cyst that can “go bad overnight”.
I also haven’t had any other health screening for since I can’t remember when. Hmm… guess I have to conquer that fear and lazy devil again in order to go for a full medical screening. The gynae wanted to do other blood tests for me but she couldn’t because I had not fasted, having had “char kuay teow” for breakfast that morning. 😛
Have you had any health or medical screening lately? Are you as scaredy cat as me when it comes to doctor visits?
