Pus this!

Since the topic of having a needle put into my boobie has come to surface, I feel the need to learn about needle biopsies in breastacles.

Last night, I read Army of Mom’s experience about having a needle biopsy done and all I could think was “Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.”

My friend, S, told me that her mom had a cyst in her boob lanced and that pus kept coming out of the hole. Pus! Pus is so much fun!

I’ve mentioned before that I want to be a pus doctor. You’d come into my office, show me the pus, and I’d take care of it. I would paint the walls yellow. Yellow carpet and furniture.

Except for the roof. The roof would be white.

The Hubs had an infected fingernail. It got very painful and red and I knew, just knew, it was full of pus. And what does he do? He goes and lances it by himself.

He took the pus glory away!

So, even though I’m dreading having a needle put into my boobie (I don’t care if I had a needle in my back for childbirth— I WAS IN PAIN) the thought of the pus makes me laugh with glee.

And if there is no pus? I’ll go rub dirt and garbage on the hole so it will get infected and full of pus. On a side note, I just wrote “pussy” but I was thinking “pus-sy.” So in theroy, I wanted my boobie to be a pussy.

    I’ve noticed a trend–more people owning up to being both grossed out and fascinated by pus. A big nasty pimple = disgusting. Popping it = kinda cool in a sick way. Hope the biopsy goes well, and I’m glad to have stumbled on your site today.

    Hmmm, a pussy boobie. Think of all the people who will find your site from googling pussy boobie.

    SJ, you would’ve been thrilled by this weird sore I got on the side of my face last summer. It took me three days to drain out all the pus and it left a gaping hole on my face for three weeks. And I was fascinated. :-D

    word of the day: “purulent” (in case you get tired of saying pussy)

    My husband does the same thing. He’s a big baby, and like three or four times a year he gets these weird pimply things on his leg (I guess from heat and friction of his pants) and he never lets me see. It’s so disgusting it’s cool. And I’m even trying to find a microscope to buy that’s not $1000 so I can examine the pus even closer. I love microscopes!

    I like gross stuff and I just can’t help myself.

    Add me to the weirdo list, I love popping zits. It’s just too sick to not be entertaining!

    OUCH! Been there with the boobie puss/pain. I did not have a needle biopsy. The first time, I had a surgical biopsy. (I was not nursing at the time - I had weaned my eldest 2 years before). They thought it was a tumor and we were ALL surprised when it turned out to be Mastitis ( thank god)

    Not another problem until about six months ago. Saturday morning it felt a little sore, didn’t think much of it. Whoa baby, by Monday morning I was seriously considering an at-home mastectomy if the doctor couldn’t see me.

    whew, getting the shivers just thinking of the pain. I feel sooooooo sorry for you right now.

    BY THE WAY….if anyone tells you about the cabbage in the bra….it does help somewhat. BUT MAN! THE STENCH of coleslaw coming out of my bra nearly made me vomit. Oh my god I cannot believe I am going to post this…….

    Didn’t mean to scare you with my biopsy story. :)
    No pus in mine. Only the really cool fish-poop looking stuff that was in my fibroadenoma. I thought I was the only sicko who secretly likes pus. Ant bites make the greatest ones … pop those buggers and they ooze. Oooh, ahhhh.
