..."pain in your butt" and "thorn in your side?" Well, I've got a "pain in my side." Those who know me, know that I am not one for taking painkillers, but I have to these days so I can get some sleep.
The plan is to get an x-ray of my side to see if they can tell what is causing the pain. The best possible scenario is that the stent they placed in my colon has moved. (Background: Before starting chemotherapy, my colon was almost blocked with the cancer tumor. So, they placed a spring-loaded-like, metal stent in there to make sure my colon wouldn't completely close during my treatments. That would be bad.)
Anyhoo...as I was saying...the best scenario is that the tumor has decreased in size causing the stent to move. I like that option, so we are going with that for now.
Because this "pain in my side" is so constant, I want to opt for the "thorn in my butt." I could pull that out in two seconds!
