Breast cysts aspirated

Successful aspirations today. 20cc of fluid out of cyst in right breast, 16cc out of one in left. Yeah, I grow them big! Ugh. The doctor was asking if I realized that doing this didn't mean they wouldn't come back. Yeah, get that. Been dealing with them for years. I don't do this just for the fun of it, doc. I only go in and ask for the aspiration when they are so big that they really bug me and are painful. These have stuck around for months and would get really sore right before my period. The funny thing was, my hubby who was supposed to be there for moral support was at the military hospital across town. (Shaking head.)

Tomorrow I have an appointment with a cardiologist. Sigh. Not looking forward to it. I didn't have a very good experience with the one I saw in Colorado. I just hope I can get my records sent from CO and not have to redo all the testing that was done there.

My weight was up a little this week, but since I'm eating better as the doctor ordered, I guess I'm not going to worry about it. And since I had a second period in 3 weeks, that affected my weight, I'm sure. I was glad I got my 30min on the bike done before I went to my appointment today. I was pretty sore by the time I got home and ended up taking a nap.

Glad the appointment went well for you, but I'm sorry you have to go through that. I hope tomorrow's appointment goes alright.

Do you drink caffeine, June? I've read that that will cause the cysts to fill.

Good luck at the cardiologist today. My one and only experience there wasn't fun. :( (Good results, though.)

No, Cammy, no caffeine. Gave it up in 1995 when I experienced my first cyst. Cardiologist was the typical arrogant a$$ just like the other cardiologist I saw in CO. :-P
