Sigh of relief...

Thank you to those of you who have had me in your thoughts and prayers!

I met with the breast specialist/surgeon yesterday and was given good news:)  She reviewed my charts and asked tons of questions and then informed me that the ultrasound and mammogram results showed a cyst... thus meaning I have a condition known as fibrocystic breast changes (formally known as fibrocystic breast disease).  Apparently this is extremely common in women in their 30s and 40s, and will cause 'lumpy' breast and lots of pain and tenderness just before a menstrual cycle.  She did perform another ultrasound in the office because when she was doing a hands on exam she was concerned about the mass that she was feeling, but the ultrasound showed that I evidently have really dense breast tissue.  So that i can LIVE with!  The surgeon scheduled me for a 3 month follow up just to keep an eye on me, and if the cyst should grow in size, then I may have to have it drained or removed.  Now I feel as though a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders, and I no longer have that persistent feeling that someone is about to tell me that I have Cancer.  For the time being... I get to keep my boobs!  As lumpy as they may be, they are still mine:)

In other news... my desire to have another baby continues to grow and grow.  D is still not ready, and physically, neither am I .  I really need to focus on getting into shape.  I told myself after losing Sebastion that I would not allow myself to fall into a depressive weight gaining rut, but in that I have failed.  I can't really say I have gained that much weight...  more so that I never really lost the baby weight  from when I was pregnant with my daughter.  Considering she is now 3 years old, I REALLY need to focus on getting back to my pre-mommy size, or at least within 10 pounds...not 35.  So that being said... I am on a journey to lose 25 pounds in 3 months.  Any helpful hints or tips to help this Momma get her figure back?  I'm hoping in doing so that I may regain some much needed self confidence, and then I may be READY for TTC:)  All I can do is try, right? Got nothing to lose but the pounds!

  1. That is good news. I have that also and had a cyst removed years ago. Something I learned from a dear friend that is some of the best information I ever received: Stay away from caffeine and chocolate. It will change the condition totally.
