I have a what?


When the doctor finally arrived in the room after me waiting for almost 20 minutes in there. He greeted me , asked me what was going on, briefly stepped out, and came back with a nurse.

I got on the table on my stomach and he checked out the top of my butt crack. "looks to me like you have a pilondial cyst". No explanation what-so-ever about what that is. Just you're having surgery.

There was no... this is what this is. or anything.

Although, being smart and being like 75% of americans, I looked up my condition online BEFORE I even got to the doctor. So I knew exactly what it was.

But for the other 25% who don't do that nor who has internet, they need an explanation on things.

Honestly, I have no idea what the surgery will consist of. I don't know how much it will cost. I don't know anything. I'm scared to know. But I know that I need to have it out.

Surgery is January 10, 2012 at 11 a.m. I am very afraid of what might happen or what might go down.

This is my second time having surgery. But the first time actually KNOWING about it. The first time I had surgery I was a baby. And being a baby, we/they don't remember anything.

So, for all you smart medical kids out there. If you know anything about pilondial cysts or if you have any encouragement for me. It would be greatly appreciated it.

But in my mind. . . here goes nothing.

You will be fine. There is nothing wrong with being nervous. Maybe you can coax a Valium out of the doctor to calm your nerves. Prayer is always good.
