Hey, how's med school going?

It's going pretty well, Rich. Thanks for asking.
I'll try to say more about that later this week, but right now, I'm off to read about ovarian cystadenomas. They either look fabulous with pumps or taste great with cocktail sauce. I can't remember which.

Ovarian cysts are fucking bitches.

They are indeed ms avarice. In 2000 I had a dermoid cyst which had swallowed my ovary removed. It was the size of an orange and had blonde hair in it but no teeth! Isn't that exciting? I just loved the photo of it - kinda cute and looked a bit like a thanksgiving turkey when it was opened up; it was the 4th laparotomy that gave me hell! Oh BTW - no cancer; hence the adenoma bit, right T?

sounds delicious - now hit the books!!

Terroni said...

Madame, your ovaries are hairy? That is exciting!

Maria said...

Yeah, and when you have one it hurts like a screaming lizard....

Mme Benaut said...

No little one, not on the outside but blonde hair on the inside of the dermoid cyst. Dermoids often contain hair and teeth!!
My OBGYN said to me during the post-op consultation - "you're really a blonde aren't you?" "Ye..ss" I said, thinking, if you don't know that, there's something seriously wrong here. I should mention that I had reddish brown hair at the time (dyed of course). He then took absolute delight in telling me that the blonde hair in the cyst proved it!! I guess you had to be there.

Terroni said...

I knew what you meant Madame (I've seen them!)...I just thought "your ovaries are hairy" sounded funny ;>

Cheryl said...

Your head must be huge to contain all that information.

Terroni said...

I routinely forget people's names to make room.
