Well, the weekend did not go as planned.
Saturday evening I started having some serious chest pain. I didn't know if it was related to the transfusions or if I was having some sort of heart problem. We called the doc and he said to get to the ER right away. So I ended up getting every test including a CT angio scan and after that, they decided to keep me in the hospital since I still was in pain. My cardiac enzymes were okay so they don't know what was going on, The doc in the hosp. said that if I promise not to tough out the pain if it returns and get to the ER right away, then I could go home. So they finally let me go home. The chest pain is gone but I am a bit worried that it will return. I am praying it doesn't.
There is some other bad? news from all of this. The ct scan of my lungs showed that a stable nodual is now growing. This could mean that any of the cancers I have had could have gone to the lung, the most likely would be the thyroid, since I have already had mets with this cancer. Or it could be a new cancer or maybe the nodual will stop growing and we will just watch it. Most likey that won't happen since that was what we doing already. So now I need to get the lung issue resolved.
It feels like a never ending circle of dr visits and tests. I so need a break.
Thank you all for your continued support and positive words. They mean so much to me. I wish I could give back to you all as much as you have given to me. Hopefully when my energy starts to return, I'll be able to post more. Right now it just is so tiring. But I do try and read the posts so that I can keep up with all of you.
Huge hugs to all
