5th August 2009 10:26I can’t even believe I am writing this as it’s so embarrassing. Was on hols a few weeks ago and on return I noticed what looked like a small bite on the back of my knee cap, now it has turned into a lump the size of a golf ball which is very hard and under the skin. Because it’s on the joint it means it’s very painful to walk and I can hardly bend my leg. I think this is a boil, I have never had one before, but have googled it and that’s what is seems like, but it has no head on it. I can’t get an appointment with my Gp until Tuesday but am worried about how I will manage the pain in the mean time and will this affect my baby in anyway. Has anyone any advice they can give me on this as im desperate, looking after a toddler and being pregnant is hard enough without this.
