Back in January of this year, I wrote a little post called Why Pelvic Self Exams Matter: A Personal Story. Since then, I decided to have surgery to remove the cyst and had surgery on May 23rd. Originally I planned on writing a follow-up post much sooner, but something about it just didn’t feel right. I couldn’t figure out how to make sense of it, much less turn it into an informative post. Reflecting on it now, I realize that this experience taught me not only about pelvic floor function, but also gave me a new perspective on being a patient which has helped me to grow as a therapist.
Alrighty, let's get right down to it. This is a personal story, y'know like one of those you tell about "a friend" but everyone knows you are just telling it about yourself. So yep, this one is MY story. If at this point you don't want to read anything related to me, my pelvic self exam, and what happened thereafter then here's your cue to head back over to your Twitter or FB feed.
As for you curious folk who are hanging around, let's get this story started.
