So I get a call from the dermatology clinic at the U of M this afternoon saying that my tests came back "not consistant with Sweet's disease." They have a few more stains to look at to double check, but wanted to at least call to see how I'm doing.
I'M CONFUSED to say the least.
Right away I'm thinking, so the huge chunk they took out of my OTHER arm was basically for naught.
I'm also thinking so what the heck is/was it??
They say it was probably something called "granulomatous drug eruption," a rare reaction to the anti-biotic I was taking for the sinus infection I don't know if I really had as a result of the flu shot I will NEVER get again.
I can't find anything in English about this granuloma crap, so I'm not even sure what questions to ask. The doc just said don't ever take that drug again, or any in the same family. Lovely.
Just for ONCE I would like a doctor to say, "Oh my gosh, I know EXACTLY what this is, it's NO BIG DEAL and we have the PERFECT way to treat it that won't cause any pain, and doesn't cost a fortune.
Pardon me while I scoop myself up off the floor of utopia.
