RAWR. Grumble. sigh.

So. I went to a vascular specialist today who thinks that, again, my leg issue is compartment syndrome.

Let’s look at the recap of this, which would probably be easier to explain via flowchart, but I’m not gonna make one of those.

So we have the running pain, which led to the PT/injury screen visit, which led to no running, which led to the first mention of compartment syndrome, which led to my doctor visit, who said it wasn’t compartment syndrome, just lymphedema.

GOOD OL’ LYMPHEDEMA.

But I – because in my spare time, I’m also a doctor – refused to take my doctor’s word for it again and scheduled an appointment with a vascular specialist ALL ON MY OWN.

My dad actually accompanied me to this appointment, which is weird because I’m 28 and do my own laundry and stuff, but he made sure to cover the questions I didn’t. I think what we were both concerned about was that this was indicative of vasculitis or blood clots, which wouldn’t have been fun either.

Now, I don’t really know what I expected to hear from this person, but I was like, “Hey! At least they won’t have to slice my leg open!”

And then he’s like, “Hey! I think it’s the condition where – if I’m right – we’re gonna have to slice your leg open!”

And my dad’s like, “Well, at least it’s not worse!”

So, now I have an appointment with another doctor on Monday to do some testing. If it’s not compartment syndrome, then they want to do an MRI on my knee. There is another condition in which the muscles get entangled with arteries, which restrict blood flow and cause swelling.

The end result of that problem? Surgery.

MOTHERBITCHES!

If it’s neither one, then it’s back to the drawing board.

Ho hum.

Have a good night, everyone.

    I know you are frustrated and stuff, and I’m totally willing you to good health and all that, but I have to say, I’ve never heard “motherbitches” before and now I feel totally enlightened. So thanks.

  2. amanda

    I’d like to say that I came up with motherbitches on my own, but I probably didn’t. However, if I did, feel free to use it yourself. I’m glad I could enlighten you. Thanks for the good thoughts!

  3. Katie

    I totally love it, and will give you appropriate credit for your intellectual property! I am currently thinking of how I can slip it into my next conversation. It’s too good not to be used.

  4. amanda

    Ha! I find it works best as an expression of frustration or exasperation. Like, “No more cookies?! Motherbitches!…” Etc etc.

  5. Katie

    I got to use it! “MOTHERBITCHES! That snake’s alive, you braindead kittens! I done told ya, and told ya…no live snakes in the house!”
