Waiting for the results of the PET scan

I had it done Friday. We are going on vacation Saturday and I am trying to be positive, but fear of the unknown is the worst. I am so sick of people saying the same thing about Thyroid cancer being the "good one", but this not knowing is very stressful. Reading some of the other posts about where it spread is very scary.

It is very difficult to wait. Hang in there and try to keep you mind on other things. Easier said than done, but realize that worrying won't affect the outcome, right? I am currently in your situation. I am having two core biopsies of my right breast on Wednesday. I am a Thyroid Cancer survivor with double metastasis to the lymph nodes. The breast masses may or may not be associated.

Keep a positive attitude and think the best possible outcome. Thinking about you and praying for you. You are not alone and there is plenty of support here.

Blessings,
Julie-SunnyAZ

Sunny, thanks so much for your post. I am hoping that you have a good report from your doctor and that we all can have a happy and healthy new year! Let me know how you make out.

Take care of yourself,
Nancy
