Really, I am the one holding the jackets and getting food for my family in line. Getting back on the bus. 'c' has raised it's ugly head. The local neurologist only had the written report when she said scar tissue. I had the hard copy of the MRI for my doctor at Stanford. He looked and looked and finally said he did not think that it was scar tissue, he saw a mass.
Ordered PET asap and refered me to a specialist, also took my case to the tumor board today.
I have an appointment tomorrow afternoon with the specialist (he already has the MRI).

    positive thoughts your way
    KTeacher,

    There is always something (coming up) to disturb our recovery. I am still hoping this will be nothing.

    Best,

    Another one holding good thoughts...
    It ain't so till someone SAYS it is positively so. I'm hoping for the scar tissue and surgery for you.

    I've always hated roller coasters myself.

    believe
    believe it will not be bad and it will not be bad

    i am a very firm believer that biopsy's are the only way to call it. many years ago they told me same and went in and was all scar tissue.

    the only certainty is biopsy

    prayer for wisdom being sent

    Hope for the best, but prepare for the worse
    I have often thought, what if the cancer comes back..will you be as strong as the first time? Praying for you and hoping you will be relieved by the end of this beautiful Friday

    Still praying
    For scar tissue. I have heard this happen so many times! So until we hear otherwise, it is scar tissue!

    Roller Coasters are scary
    and so is Cancer, but as you read others have had some what if moments to find indeed it was scar tissue. So even though you have a right to be scared, I would be, we will be praying that like many times in this journey the fear was unwarranted and it will be scar tissue and not cancer. Your are in Diane and my prayers.

    Bleep
    Hoping for a fluke. If it isn't scar tissue, OK - it can still be something else that isn't malignant.
