It only took me 4 or 5 months, but I have managed to figure out this stupid cyst thing. Thanks to pain meds I seem to have slept through the worst pain yesterday. Hopefully I'll succeed in managing the rest of today. I was up in the night for a while but that was my cat. She's not felt well for several days and wasn't eating much; she made up for it by eating like a teenage boy yesterday. When she woke me for the 2nd time in the night I kept grumbling about no way did she eat the prior can already. She had. I realized then that the worst pain was gone. Now I'm tired (mainly thanks to the cat) but so much more comfortable than yesterday.
Now I have to get ready and go to work. Thanks to one person not answering and one person who I don't have a phone number and tried to contact several people with access who didn't answer so I can't see them I only have 3 visits. No so good for my productivity but great for my not really wanting to work today. I will see if the one person wants a late appointment but am pretty sure not calling back means no with them.
And as far as productivty goes, whatever. I am tired. I hurt. I didn't take a sick day. We'll survive.
