I hope it comes back benign and thanks for the heads up post. Being a healthcare professional, I agree with you, we know our own bodies the best so if things are off, we need to get checked out ASAP before it turns into something worse.
This past year I was so irritable, unhappy, gaining weight like no other, and so so tired. My mom finally made me get my bloodwork done and my tsh and thyroid antibody levels were off the charts-hypothyroidism.
Please keep us posted on your progress! Be strong, we are all here for you! Your presence has really been missed. Praying for you Dee!! Hugs and kisses love!!!

Yeppers, you got it in ONE!!! Always making sure our animals & everyone else is fine but for some reason, be it fear, too busy, lack of care, whatever, ignoring ourselves and any signs of anything different, especially when they can be put down to simply getting older.
Isn't it such a shock when bloods or something else comes back off the scale - it's so hard to believe there was anything wrong at all, that only ever happens to other people and we spend our time worrying/praying for them!
Obviously I've now done extensive reading on this topic & it seems the ovaries are almost more prone than other organs to have hiccups - we're born with the number of eggs we need to go through our entire lives and they fare far, far better if they have regular, reasonably long breaks, be that from pregnancy, or taking the Pill etc. The weirdest thing is that many cysts contain hair, and even teeth etc., hence me calling them my little tribe of aliens hehehehe.
