My needle biopsy from near my thyroid area came back suspicious for (whatever that medical term is for cancer). My doctor was shocked. He did say he was concerned about lymphoma, but it is not that. He is very stunned. He did another CA-125 today. The one I think it was last month was 12.8. Early May pet and ct scans were clean the abdominal area.
I have a stool sample ready to take back to the clinic. Tuesday a mamogram. He's also going to have some lymph node removals from my neck area, as he does not know what we are dealing with. He said it would be extremely rare for it to be ovarian, but as we know no one can predict this stupid disease.
Looks like more chemo is in my future. He did say that if it is thyroid cancer than they will remove it.
I NEVER feel as alone after my husband's death two years ago as when something like this happens.
I am SO scared. I do have a strong faith, but I am also human. So much for a complete remission. It lasted around 9 months.
Any words of advice? I can't stop crying. I won't give up, but I hate these emotions. I hate being so scared!
