It was scary to see a black round spot on my tongue……it appeared just to the right side of the centre, towards to back of my mouth. I knew this had something to do with inside my body but I didn’t know what. I felt great, I was happy and in love so I ignored it and hoped for the best.
What happened a few days after noticing it? I got a stomach pain, sharp and unrelenting. It started as a small annoying pain under my right rib cage. As the day progressed the pain got worse and grew down the right side of my stomach. Luckily I had a doctor with intuition and by 8pm I was in a Bali ambulance (with no suspension) being dropped off at the Australian owned BIMC. Long story short, after scanning my stomach it appeared to be something very horrible inside as the xrays were all cloudy in the area of the pain. The doctors stabilized me with strong antibiotics and pain killers. It was a pain that I will never forget. When asked on a scale from 1 to 10, 10 being unbearable……I wanted them to put me under a general anesthetic just so I wouldn’t have to feel the pain. Had it gone on longer than it did, I believe I would of passed out or died from the pain.
To make the story a bit shorter, I went to Singapore, the specialist took one look with the lastest equipment in ultra sound, and pronounced I should have been operated on yesterday. They took out a 330 gm cyst that was on my fallopian tube and had been leaking lots of puss. For 4 days I had to wait to find out if it was cancerous….thankfully it wasn’t. I was one of the lucky ones.
But I will never take black spots on my tongue lightly again. I recommend if you have any suspicious black spots, it might be a good idea to find a tongue reader or go and get ultra sounds or scans and be safe. I almost died because I didn’t take notice of all the little signs going on in my body. I have a second chance to live and I always remind myself of this fact if ever i take life too seriously….except my health of course. As we all know, without health, we have nothing.
