A Monday morning visit to the urologist……

Soooooooo.

I had been referred to the urologist by my midwife because she noticed a “cyst” on my urethra during a routine pap smear.

So, I had been putting off this visit(I mean really, it didn’t hurt and the $50 co-pay was not enticing me to go.)

But I’m one of those females who has a “coochie” mirror and I look frequently(ie daily) at my lady bits.  So, a few weeks ago, I noticed this bulge where there didn’t used to be one.  So I made the appointment with the urologist without further ado.

So my appointment was today.  It was at 1030.  I didn’t get seen until 1230.  Yes, 1230.  2 whole hours after my appointment time.  Great.  Great.

So anyway.  He takes a look and declares it could be one of two things. 

It could be a Bartholin cyst.  I’ve had these before.  But not near my urethra.  If that is it, cut, drain, finished.  But the Bartholin cysts that I have had in the past were PAINFUL!  What I have now, is not.

Or, it could be a Bladder Diverticulum.  Hmmmmm. yes……

But, the problem is, we can’t diagnose either of these without a x-ray and a MRI.  And I can’t get either of these because I’m pregnant. 

Plus, a diverticulum has to operated on.  In the OR.  Under anesthesia.

Yes, this gets better.  So basically, we can’t do anything until after I deliver. 

So, I have an appointment for one week before my maternity leave ends. 

What if I end up needing surgery? 

Good Lord! Who’s going to take care of the baby?

  1. Try to relax Mama & not jump to the worst conclusions – I know easier said than done. Prayerfully it’s the cyst and you’ll be done with it. That’s my prayer.

    And I love the drama of “Good Lord! Who’s going to take care of the baby?” 😉

  2. C-dub. Duuuuh! Just kidding! Hopefully, it won’t come to that. Good luck!
