Well, I mostly forgot about it, until just now when I went to pee. It's like a UTI times a hundred. My bladder is still full because I can't push past the pain, so to speak. No idea what he managed to do with a freaking cotton swab, but is there anything I can do to lessen the pain while urinating? Because I can't hold it forever, but I also don't want to pass out on the toilet. That's a life experience I can do without, honestly.
(And on top of everything else, the swab was normal, no recurrent BV like I suspected. So. Didn't even need to do all that. Awesome!)
Also, he said my cyst was mostly uniform in appearance and mostly fluid-filled, and hasn't changed much in three months - that means it's probably benign, right? I'm used to getting cysts and usually don't worry about them, but a friend of mine was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and it kind of messed my head up.
