Had two lumps removed yesterday under local anesthetic, both on my right ribs. The surgeon was great, he was American and went through everything with me, before and afterwards. I have had a few of these removed previously and was told they are lipomas, I asked the doctor if they could be Dercums disease, he was non committal, but did suggest I could possibly have a general anesthetic and have more removed than just two with a local anesthetic. Have to wait for the pathology results, but he didn't think there was anything sinister with them.
Does anyone else suffer with lipomas or any lumps? I have quite a few all over my body and some of them are very painful. Feeling a little more tired than usual today and a little sore. Will have stitches out in 12 days time so hope I will feel more comfortable then.
