Hi all, thought i would just give you a brief outline of my situation: first lump i noticed was in 1988, dr told me i must have bumped my back and a lump of grisle formed around my rib. I was 9st then. 2001 larger lumps appeared on my forearm. I got one scanned i was told it was lipoma and couldnt be removed (wrongly advised) by this time i had gained almost 4st i put it down to having two kids and enjoying life. A month ago the lumps on my arms got painful. I put up with it until i realised i had pain in my leg also i thought it was sciatica, I was also aware i had lumps in my abdomen, inner thigh and outer thighs. My bowels arent normal and i suffer bouts of erm loose (you know what i mean) with stomach pain. I am tired all the time, I put it down to lifestyle, i have a family and work shifts. I have been in and out of depression for years.
three weeks ago i went to my gp which by the way was a locum, she told me to take paracetamol and go home. I told her it wasnt good enough. she told me she would look into my history. she rang me the next day and told me she thought i could have DD.
I see a specialist at the hosp next wed…
I really need to know, at what stage am i with DD? and what does my future hold for me?
thanks for taking the time to read this.
forgot to say: I am now 9st overweight and since 2001 have put on almost 5 st in which in the last 2 yrs i have struggled but lost 1st.
