June 2013


I don’t know why, but my IC is flaring again. Urgency, pain, incontinence … it’s all there. 

There haven’t been any big changes to my diet, other than changing the type of milk I drink, so I just don’t know what to think! 

I’m using AZO and my heating pad to help combat all the pain, and the other issues. 

I should use some baking soda water as well. 

I’m thankful that most of the time my IC is just an inconvience at most, but I hate the times when it really makes its presence known!

So, it has been longer than I’d like to think about since I last blogged. There’s been a lot. Another disability denial, getting my medical care underway, working (VERY) parttime, doing crafty things and finishing projects.

 

There have also been skin biopsies. 

I have A LOT of moles. So many that there is actually a name for a person whose skin is in the condition mine is in.

And so far, the three we have results for have all been precancerous. One was bigger than the resident who did that specific biopsy thought, so it had to be redone. 
The latest one to be done (on my hip/thigh area, near my buttock) is looking like the scariest one yet. This is biopsy set 2, and mole #4 to be biopsied. My doctor was very concerned when he saw it. I don’t know if it will turn out to be cancerous or just a higher level of precancer, but either way, it’s worrying. 

So that’s the latest in my journey through life.

 

Oh, and it’s melanoma that all of this is pointing to, so the most serious of the skin cancers.
