Ow!

Well, I now know that getting an MRI is oddly soothing at you lay there in the loud noise not moving.
Unfortunately, on a related note, I also now know that I have a cyst in my leg. :(
My leg was hurting Friday night and I thought it was just a sore muscle. But Rick massaging it didn't help, and it didn't get any better on it's own. So today I decided that I had to go to urgent care and after the xray showed nothing they sent me over to Methodist for an MRI.
There's a cyst in my left leg about 6" below the knee and off to the side. Tomorrow I go see a specialist and find out if they'll just drain it somehow or if I get to have surgery. Yay. Either way it's gotta go because it's right by a nerve. Fun.

That's stinky! I'm sorry. I hope it's nothing serious.

Thanks. :)
From what I understand cysts are usually not serious (i.e cancerous) but I know they want to get this one taken care of ASAP because it is affecting my nerve. The ibuprofen I took is helping a lot with the pain, but isn't doing anything for the area that is numb sometimes.

I hope the solution is simple and painless

Thanks!
And if it's not painless, hopefully it will be quick and there will be good painkillers. :) Cysts are usually fairly routine, so I'm not panicked about it yet...

Hopefully, it can be drained. Still sucks to have to deal with it.

Drained or removed, I'm good with either. I'm just hoping it doesn't require missing too much work since I don't get any sick pay.

Ick! Well, if you need someone to drive you during the day, just give me a buzz. I'm free to do it, and then Rick doesn't have to take off work. (Unless he really wants to, of course!)

I'll let you know if I need you. I won't even know until I call first thing tomorrow what time they'll be able to get me in.

yikes. Hope it gets sorted soon. Can't have my Minnesota Posse operating at reduced strength.

Packers? Oh sure, hit a girl when she's down! :)
Pain's not too bad today, but I haven't heard when they'll be able to get me scheduled to have it removed yet.
