Thank you for letting me use your shoulders to lean on. Thank you to Stidham for explaining to me that these hematomas do not go away quickly. I've been checking everyday for the last week and it's still there which throws me into a panic because i thought it would leave when the bruise left. I guess I should just stop checking it and trust that it is not a cancerous breast tumor the size of my index finger, and just as long. The ER doctor was very confident of his diagnosis but since I've had fibro for 10 years I tend not to be too trusting of doctors. Well I've rambled long enough just wanted to say thanks. OH! Stidham I read your bio I have a 17 year old daughter who has been insulin dependent since she was eight. She's a great kid, and a big inspiration to me.
