About 6 days ago I noticed that I had a bump on my lower back. Not knowing what it was, I brushed it off my shoulder and just decided to forget about it, thinking that it would go away on its own. Little did I know, that bump would continue to grow over the course of the next few days and eventually, become so painful that I had to take myself to the Emergency Room. What started as something the size of a mosquito bite, grew into something the size of a quarter - it was a cyst (also known as an abscess). Apparently these things are common and happen to the best of us, therefore Im not ashamed to share my story or what others might consider gross or disgusting and too much information. Reader beware, it is in fact gross, disgusting AND too much information. Soooo, if you don't want to hear about it, visit another site. aha Ok, so once I was seen by a doctor I was taken in and given a shot to numb my lower back/my ass. What the doctor had to do was make an incision into the cyst and drain all the puss out. So there I was with my ass in the air, puss and blood dripping out for the whole world to see. After the puss was drained out, the doctor had to put some packing in it and close it up. Im pretty sure my ass was on display for a good 20 minutes. Anyway, after I was bandaged and closed up, the doctor told me to come back in 2 days to get my incision repacked, as if he didn't see my ass enough as it was. So tomorrow I have to go back in to repeat the process of being publicly humiliated. The good side of this whole ordeal is that I was prescribed some way cool drugs. Vicodin and antibiotics are my new best friend and have definitely made up for my pain and embarrassment. Ive managed to be drugged up most of the day today so im doing quite well. I have been pretty cautious as to how I have been treating my wound and Im actually standing at my desk as we speak - just so that I don't sit on my ass. So yeah, maybe tomorrow when I go in and get it my wound repacked ill take a sweet picture? aha Im only kidding.
