my LIPOMAless leg

For the last 7 years I have had a lump in my leg...a LIPOMA! What is a lipoma you ask? Oh it's just fatty tissue all rolled up (like chicken fat). Doesn't that sound delightful? Well, it is. So, I have had this fat lump that overtime has become more annoying and a little more painful. I finally got it taken care of. It has been removed!!! I mean really; what's one more scar? I'm not sure what hurts more, the recovery or the lipoma itself. Now if you examine the picture...you will see a circle! This is where the lump was and yet the actual incision is above the circle. Fairly odd I know. Before the surgery, I stood up and the surgeon and I located the lump and circled it (so he knew where to cut) but, when I laid down the lump would move. I stood up again, and the lump did indeed appear again... in the circle. What??? Weird I know. We've all known for quite sometime now that my body is a weird one. I'm on the mend and am starting to get around way better and have conquered the stairs!
Here's to a lipomaless leg!

SO glad you got it taken care of and that you are on the mend. my goodness.

Have you been able to get that darn marker off your leg yet? I swear everytime Katie has a surgery that dang marker takes so long to scrub off!!!

Well congrats of getting rid of the chicken fat ;) That is super funny that it was playing hide and go seek with the doctor, even your chicken fat has a since of humor that is great!
Well glad you are on the mend and doing better, good job on the stairs. Can't wait to hang sometime and I can't wait to see your scar, I have lots of um too!!

Leave it to you to make a lipoma scar look sexy. Soon all the husbands will be wanting their wives to have one. CURSE you for your trendsetting ways.

Hey ika, hope the surgery won't have you down for too long. We booked our tickets, we fly in on March 20 and I will be there until April 3. Mike will probably Leave March 27 or 28 I'm not sure. Let's get together.

Anne Marie said...

Shannon said...

Any kind of surgery is no fun. I'm glad you are feeling better & able to make it around your house. Just use baby steps!
p.s. is girls camp around the 4th of July this year? I'm coming back to Cali for a week starting the 4th.

Krissy said...

My mom has one in her neck and refuses to get it taken care of. I'm showing my mom this and telling her to get it done! lol :)

Chris and Jenn said...
