Topic: My tumor has teeth!
I have something to share with my horror family. For about the last year I have been suffering from unrelenting abdominal pain. I had a CT two weeks ago which revealed about a fist size cyst that has taken over my left ovary. Now for the weird part...
It's called a mature teratoma. I was born with it and basically had it my entire life. If you have never heard of a teratoma they contain all different kinds of tissue, including teeth. So basically I have a cyst that has teeth and hair and who knows what else in my left ovary. Next Tuesday I have to have my entire left ovary removed. My doctor says Mike and I should have no trouble when we are ready to have kids. I am naturally a little scared. To be honest though when I found out my cyst had teeth I wanted it out like right now. The girls at work refer to it as munchkin. My friend Stacey said that's what I got for watching all the horror movies.
So keep your fingers crossed for me or pray for me or whatever you choose.
The best part is I get two weeks off work!
