    Default "Just fat"

    I just had to write in today. I just left my doctor's office and was told the lumps that I have on my neck, right at my clavicles are nothing more than fat pads. Oddly enough. I have lost 13 pounds over the last few weeks, yet these are "fat pads". It doesn't explain why I have an unending chronic pain across the top of my chest, up around my clavicles and into my neck, and between my shoulder blades. PCP told me that I am paying too much attention to my body and to relax. It is just fat. He still thinks I have unexplained inflammation that should settle down. As far the swelling and extreme redness that continues to flare everytime I go outside and am in a warm room is just a photosensitivity that I have developed. He is sending me to a dermatologist for a "biopsy". This I truly don't understand. Anyway, I appreciate having a place to vent.

    I get those "just fat" nodules often. However, being a cancer survivor, I never take any of them lightly! So, off I go running to my doctor to make sure that they are nothing serious. So far...so good!
    So, there is nothing wrong with you wanting some solid answers about these "fat" nodules and there certainly nothing wrong with you paying close attention to your body. A good doctor would appreciate a patient who knows their body well.
    You never need to apologize for venting here with us. We truly understand. Stand your ground and do not allow this doctor to dismiss any issue that you bring to his attention. Also, let him know that you have no intention of ignoring your body because you are dedicated to doing all that you can to maintain some reasonable health. If he does not want to work with you on this goal, then refer you to someone who does!!
    We are here for you whenever you need us. So, vent away!!

    Peace and Blessings
    Namaste

    Red face

    Betty Boop:, Make sure you're vigilant with the Drs to rule out all the things it can be. Even when they dont think its anything. I would be like show me its not anything! I went in after my suposed treatment (increase in pred) for 11days didnt do anything for my suposed costochondritis. I went back and the dr said "we have done xrays last year and ct last year for the same complaint! i dont know what to tell you! its all superficial pain", and pressed on my ribs so hard that it would of hurt any1, and said"well does that hurt!" Well, of course it did! So that was the end of that visit. I called my Rhuem and he was like I want to see you and try to figure out whats up! (I love him!) Just another update of many! HUgs KATHY

    I know what you mean, Kathy.

    I have a doctor's appointment today and I'm already in such a tension this morning!
    It's like being in a suspense when you watch a Thriller movie!

    I try to relax, but let me tell you, I'm in a suspense not knowing what I can expect!
    The appointment is in the afternoon.

    Now let me go watch a movie, at least that can take my mind of it for awhile.

    Hugs,

    Margie
