On March 9th I received a call from my Gyno's office that I had appointment with her at 11:15 that morning. I had a vaginal ultrasound and biopsies done on(3/2) following my routine check up the week before. Knew a phone call telling me I had an appointment could not be good.
Today was to be my first visit with the oncologist and 4 hours prior I received a call that my appointment was cancelled due to the Dr's plane being delayed and it would be the following Tuesday before it could be rescheduled. I thought I was handling the diagnosis well so I am not sure why I fell apart after I got off the phone with the scheduler. I could not even remember what time she told me.
I have been doing a lot of research on the internet and had all my questions written down. The big thing is trying to understand what the lab report means. The Final Diagnosis reads:
Anyone knows what this means or what things in the lab report I can look for to help me determine what stage I might be in.
I am post-menopause and age 53. I am considering requesting the lymph nodes be removed even though my gyno said she did not think it would be necessary. The oncologist is only one of two who currently doing the robotic surgery in my area. Looking for any information on how long of hospital stay to expect and how soon I can return to work.
