I had an appointment today with my dermatologist. The enbrel seems to be working like it's supposed to. I also had a large lump on my side that I've been waiting to get checked. In the past two weeks it about doubled or tripled in size and has been hurting like hell. It turned out to be a big cyst. I figured the doctor would probably drain it and maybe send a piece of it away to be checked. That is exactly what he did. Now I have to wait until next week until I hear something. I hate waiting. He seemed pretty confident that there wasn't anything unusual about it, but he wanted to be sure.
There isn't much else happening. I don't have my next transplant appointment or labs for another month. I am starting to get anxious about that.
I have had a lot of bloody noses happening lately. The good thing is that they don't last. And I am having a lot of bathroom issues which tend to give me stomach aches. That is the downfall of taking so many diuretics. Plus I am still having trouble with losing my breath and my voice. It doesn't take much for me to get winded.
Some days I feel like I'm spiraling and I feel like I am getting worse. I just need to remind myself that I need to be patient and continue to wait. I just wish I didn't have this big hole in my side while I do it.
