Well, as most of you know I am sitting in a hotel in the middle of getting Cyberknife. Yesterday morning I woke up and was having pain in my rib area under my left breast.. I thought maybe I had slept on it wrong or maybe I had slept on the remote control...it was bruised feeling like that. I just blew it off and went about my business. As the day progressed into the evening I noticed it was getting worse. By this morning, it hurt when I moved certain ways and if I breathe too deep and when I press on that area. What??????? I thought back on if I have had any trauma to that area and I did about a week ago. Some guy..a VERY large man....who I have not seen in over a year....I ran into...and he was so happy to see me that he literally picked me up..hugging me..and swinging me around....he hugged me so tight I about passed out...I couldn't even talk to tell him to stop. When he stopped...it took me a minute to regroup before I could even yell at him. Dang big arse dude didn't know his own strength. He didn't mean to hurt me but IT HURT!!! Anyway, the hurt only lasted about 30 minutes and then went away so I didn't think no more about it.
I told my rad onc at Cyberknife today. He examined me. He is doing a ct scan tomorrow morning. He said it is one of 3 things. He said that man could have broke a rib and it has been swollen which has padded the break and now that the swelling has gone down I am feeling the break..OR...I have concrete in 2 of my upper vertebrae in my back from where I broke my back last year.....that man may have squeezed me so tight that it broke loose some of that concrete and now it is pinching a nerve...OR...I have bone mets. What the hell???? Are you for real???? LOL. Oh my god...I just can't friggin believe this!!!!
So, here I am hoping and praying I have a broken rib..... How retarded does that sound? LOL. My husband is so mad at that guy but its not like he did it on purpose. He has apologized over and over. Hell, it may not even be from him. I will know for sure tomorrow and will let you guys know. I just can't believe these stupid things happen to me!
Room service is knocking... LOL.... Later
UPDATE>>>>> Ribs are just badly bruised...thanks to all you well wishers!!!! Love ya!
