A couple of weeks ago, I went to my primary care physician about an abscess in my right arm pit. I think it was from an ingrown hair but it was leaking puss and growing.
She prescribed me Doxycyline and ordered me to get a mammogram too…just in case but then again, my mom does have a history of cysts in her breasts.
Then she told me I gained weight. I’m not going to lie, but I did. I’ve been living the sedentary lifestyle since working all these jobs and starting school. She ordered me to get fasting labs drawn. Since then, I’ve put myself on a low sugar (because even vegetables and fruits can have sugar), low sodium, and low calorie diet. Mostly, I’ve been eating a plant-based diet. It’s not very tasty but then again, I’m not getting any younger either. And since homeboy aka my husband, is a very conscientious eater, I’ve been more mindful about my intake of food. I’ve also been taking the fur baby out for more walks, since she’s feeling better.
So today, I got my mammogram completed and labs drawn. We’ll see what the results are. I still have the abscess but it’s not oozing out any puss at least and the size has maintained.
