whats going on with me... nothing good

Monday, May 16, 2011

Ok, as some of you may have noticed by my status updates, things are not good at the moment. I figured I should take a few minutes to fill you all in.

I am right now not working out at all... its driving me mental, serioulsy going crazy here, but I can't. I have found a lumpy bumpy thing in my collarbone area and its very painful. I have found that it is just to painful to do anything with, hence the workout going down the drain for now. I have been to the doctor, the good news is we ruled out and infection of some sort (like a gland or lymph node), but the bad news is we don't know what we are dealing with.
In the last few weeks since I noticed the lump, it has gotten progressivily more painful (I know have pain meds), and there is a second lump. Today I was back for a follow up and I have been refered to a sugeon for a biopsy, which I see thursday, and for a CT scan.

I was hoping to be able to get back on track soon, but its not looking that promising right now. I am still trying to eat well, but not everyday goes as planned, such as today!

Well thats me in a nutshell right now, just hanging in waiting to see whats going on.

Thanks to everyone for the continued support :)

    Whoa that has got to be scary, not knowing what the bump is. I hope the test and CT Scan come back negative for anything serious and I hope the bump/pian can be resolved. I can sympathize about the pain interfering. Pain can be debilatating and depressing. I got pain med from my doc yesteray for a cyst on my toe joint inside, it has kept me from walking most all last week. Waiting for an MRI to confirm that it is a cyst and if I need surgery.
    Maybe you could still do some lower body workouts?

    Hang in there and you are doing great on the challenge! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Wishing you all the best. Once you know what you're dealing with then you'll know where you go from here. It's sometimes the unknown that is the worst. Take care of you.

    The most important thing right now is to find out what you are dealing with; once you know that, you can put your action plan in place and get back on track with diet and exercise. It sounds like you've done the right things so far - doctor, referrals, specialists. Don't stop asking questions until you have your answers.
    I'll be thinking of you this week, and sending all my positive vibes across the Prairies and over the Rockies right to you.
