I am sitting here - tired and trying to control my stress levels. This week I found that (after my period has finished) I have a very painful boob - just the one mind - and I am sure it is about 2 cup sizes bigger. I was very brave - rang to make an appt with my GP, but he's on holiday. So I had to see one of the partners. So he examined me and it was V painful. Good news (I hope) is that he couldn't feel a lump. Does anyone else get this kind of thing? I asked him if it was something to do with fibro - and he launched into the ' some people say it doesn't exist and we Drs use it when we don't know what is wrong etc etc'...... I had no qualms about telling him IT IS REAL! But as a result of this - I feel less convinced about his assessment and made an appointment to see my own GP next week anyway. He concluded I had mastalgia - breast pain - he didn't think they were uneven in size - although I said - I know my own body and they are not as they should be!
To top that - my was sick last night - several times so I took him to the vet and he's ended up having an operation for small bowel obstruction. He only had surgery for the same thing in July .... and I am not sure the insurance will cover it if it is caused by the same thing. So I am anxious about my painful swollen breast still because I doubt the quality of my GP consultation and anxious about my poor doggy and hoping he is going to make it ... the house is very empty without him
