    Stupid Cysts!

    So about 10 days ago a couple of nasty sebaceous cysts popped up on my back. One was about the size of a tennis ball. I went to the doctor and had them lanced and drained. The larger one was packed with gauze. I was going back daily for a dressing change and re-pack. I'm up to every other day now.

    The doctor put me on Keflex (and another anti-biotic.) I told her that Keflex always gives me mild diarrhea and a slight fever. Need it anyway, shut up Fred.

    Today I'm due for a dental appointment and a re-pack. I'm up a degree in temp. Sure hope they see me for the re-pack! This thing itches.

    I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Look at the up side, at least you have a doctor that will actually see you in person. Right now it seems that so many doctors only want to do virtual visits or direct you to the ER or an ER Clinic.

    That's no fun at all. Hope it goes away.

    Hope you don't visit anywhere where they take your temperature on entering. That could pose an interesting interchange.

    One of my goals in life is to shoot more people on purpose than I do by accident. So far, so good.

    I've had a few. Definitely not fun. I wish you well on healing up from these.

    I have a friend that had FOUR big ones removed at one time, all of them infected. He
    was pretty miserable for a while.

    Apparently my thermometer sucks. Dentist took my temp at 8am, 97.4 (normal for me.). About the same at the doctor later. Dressing change and repack wasn't too bad. Back to daily visits for a while. Oh yeah, this morning was full of joy.

    So, I changed from the male dentist to his female partner because, well, she's hot. She's been wearing a hazmat suit ever since. Maybe she's throwing a hint.
