I haven't posted in a while. I believe I had mentioned a few days ago that I have an infected cyst on my shoulder that has been giving me grief. I've had this cyst for a few years now. Normally doctors would just cut it out and that's the end of it, but because I scar really badly, they don't want to risk it.
Friday I noticed that it was swollen and painful, I could barely stand a bra strap rubbing against it. I went into the clinic that evening and got a prescription for antibiotics. I'm still on the antibiotics, the cyst has swollen up to the size of a golf ball and I am in a lot of pain. Any movement of my shoulder hurts. The combination of the pain the antibiotics, and oncoming shark week have left me pretty cranky and unmotivated. I also don`t want to risk having the cyst burst while I`m at the gym.
Anyhow, I'm hoping this thing will burst soon, then I'll feel much better. I ate pretty well yeserday and did a home workout. Might workout at home again today. I am not doing a weigh-in or stats until the cyst drains.
