05:18 pm: The Primary Doctor
Back on the first, when I brought Spirit home from the dental vet the first time and careened around the house in the desk chair cleaning up the blood, I got a pain in my right groin when I stood or sat or bended. It seemed to me to be something to do with a patch of stria and just the loose skin, not a hernia, and I thought it would go away. But after two weeks, I made an appointment for today because it hurts like crazy when it does hurt. The doctor agreed that it has something to do with the skin -- just a soft brush of the finger makes me yell while pushing at it doesn't hurt -- but doesn't know what would do that. So she's having me try calamine first, on general principles, and if that doesn't work, I'll pick up the hydrocortisone cream (I have an OTC hydrocortisone cream and will probably try that before getting the prescription) and try that.

Also, after more than a decade of menopause, I've had some minor bleeding the last week, so she had me move up my gyn appointment to next Thursday.

I looked at Chili's nutrition data yesterday to check protein and today I had their new jalapeno/onion string stack (0 protein) which was very good and the side Caeser salad which only had 4gr so I can have a little slice of the pork tonight.

That pain in the groin area doesn't sound good. Let's hope it responds to calamine or hydrocortisone. And let's hope your ob/gyn will be able to figure out what's going on. No fun at all!
Take good care,

Well, if they don't work, she'll probably give me a referral to dermatology.

Oh, man; a decade and you've been hit with bleeding (minor notwithstanding)? That's just crappy on the part of the universe.

My first thought when you said the skin hurt upon being brushed was "shingles?" But I imagine something like that would be more apt to show along the shoulders, backs and elbows. I hope the hydrocortisone cream works like a charm.

And shingles has a line where this is just a really big stria (strech mark -- about 1x2"). I'm not having pain with the bleeding, which is much better than before.

I'm glad to hear the bleeding's painless. I'll keep my fingers crossed for your current pain being short and not generated by anything serious.
