Thanks for everyone's advice on the biopsy issue. I have (finally) heard back from the ENT and they said that the ultrasound shows increased lymphadenopathy and a new submandibular node. They didn't mention anything about any nodes decreasing, which my PCP had said so not sure what's what there...
Anway, they want to see me so that we can proceed with biopsy. My appointment for consultation is a week from today and then we'll go from there. This is all still so surreal. I thought once I got the biopsy rolling I would feel at peace a little more, but I am even more scared than ever.
With some other weird symptoms popping up (slight side/abdominal pain and light sweating at night) my fears are increasing. It was easier to believe in other possibilities when I was without symptoms. My husband continues to chalk it all up to stress but I have my doubts.
Any advice for dealing with the anxiety?
