Dear doctor, Knock it off. Anxiously, me

At the doctor's office today, I was marveling aloud at the size of the blob of tissue I'd expelled. My doctor said, with just a little too much eagerness, "Yeah, if we'd left it alone you probably would have had a rupture. It sounds like you were pretty close."

Um. Yeah. Thanks. Listen, next time could you say something, you know, reassuring?

Do you think maybe I've given an incorrect impression of how well I'm handling this?
