Had a telephone appointment with my GP this morning to discuss the results of last week’s ultrasounds. Each of them turned up an abnormality, but neither of them is really dangerous at least. I seem to have a kind of benign liver lesion , along with polycystic ovaries (…and technically I meet the diagnostic criteria for PCOS itself, but with no evidence of insulin resistance or high androgen levels, idk…). Specialist appointments are in the works to confirm the diagnoses and establish what kind of management might be required. It feels good to have an explanation, even though it would’ve been better still not to have this body weirdness in the first place.
