Had the first of my two post-Uterine Fibroid Embolization appointments on Tuesday. I met with my Gynecologist and yes, he used the speculum…again. I was cool because I knew it would be the last time I had to experience “the Gator” for several months. YAY! Resisted the temptation to ask if he ever felt like a mechanic.
Became so excited from the thought of a Gator-free life that I forgot to ask him about fibroid weight. It seems that a lot of people are interested in an answer. I’ll work on it. I did manage to remember to invite my doctor here. I think it would be pretty funny if he visits only to see that I called him Mighty Mouse. I’m sure he’s accustomed to my sense of humor by now (Gulp, I hope).
I’m normally not one to compare doctors to superheroes but allow me to explain. Mighty Mouse was one of my favorite cartoons as a child. The best part was the theme. Hearing MM sing “Here I come to save the day!” made me grin each time. Fast forward to this year when I really needed help. The “dashing young fibroid doctor” stepped in and several times I actually thought I heard that theme from long ago. He literally saved the day.
So, I guess this is my insane way of thanking my doctor. I now sense my Interventional Radiologist cringing as he wonders how I will “thank” him. 😉
