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!
