The doctor looked at it this morning. Nothing. Still likely a hematoma.
To recap I have a 4x7x2 cm (yes, I measured) lump on my hip that keeps getting bigger (yesterday was roughly 4x5x2 cm) that no one wants to do anything about.
I’m getting to the point where I’m not going to be able to wear pants since it’s right on my belt line. Not only that but I can’t even begin to try to sleep on my right side. I am really empathizing with pregnant women at this point since I can comfortable sleep in only one way.
Of anything on me now, the order of annoyance goes something like this:
- The damn lump on my hip
- My right knee
- My right hip
The irony of the situation is this all started with my right hip and now that’s the thing that giving me the least trouble.
I’m this close (holding fingers close together) to doing something about it myself. I figure an X-Acto blade strapped between a pair of wooden blocks for depth setting would get the job done. Go down maybe 1/2″ and treat it like the giant zit that it is.
I’m not going to do that but it’s getting way too tempting.
Happy birthday me. Yaaay.
