On pins and needles

I was dignosed with stage 3 EC in March 2012, went through treatments and had THE surgery in June. I was in to my surgeon for a scheduled throat stretch today I had asked him to check a couple lumps I had found up by the collar bone. He has done a fine needle aspiration to check for a cause. There was a look of concern on his face.

I did have a fistula leak in that area so it could just be scar tissue or possibly a localized infection. Please cross your fingers for me.

It certainly is anxiety provoking when our doctor does not say, "Oh, that is nothing it is just....."

I assume he took a needle biopsy and there is now a wait for the results. I will certainly have my fingers crossed and hoping the results will come quickly and be nothing of concern.

Positive thoughts coming your way.

The hurry up and wait game is terrible when it comes to our health. Hopefully you will get good news from the biopsies very soon. we are praying for you!!

There is one thing I have learned over the last 2 years is, do not get anxious over getting results. You will waste valuable time.

Having had EC, we all are concerned about everything that is different. Fingers are crossed, toes are crossed and praying for you.
