My turn to kvetch

donna_lee Member Posts: 1,024 Member

After 3 rounds of surgery in 06,07, & 08, I thought I was "home free.'  The most recent CT says maybe not.  I'm scheduled for an MRI of the brain on Monday and a lung biopsy next Wednesday.  Then the wait for results and conference with Dr.  Only time will tell.  Meanwhile, it doesn't do any good stewing about ?????, and I have plenty to do either outcome.

    No. It does no good. For me, at least, I often feel I don't have control of the burner. On the other hand, I know that it is completely me doing that. It's a struggle.

    I hope it's all nothing AND you can let it go in between when you need to think about it.

    Hope it's just doctors being

    Hope it's just doctors being cautious and turns out to be nothing. The waiting time is the worst for me. Hugs back at you!

    I can understand that you're on edge here.  Just when you feel that cancer is only a bad memory, your cage gets rattled merely by the thought of its possible return.  I get it.  

    Praying for good results.

    Local Culture

    I had to google 'kvetch'. Around here 'whinge' is still the popular term for it.

    But is it not considered a good thing to express one's feelings?

    Surely we can kvetch about cancer scans (or anything else cancer related), at least until our friends stop listening.

    I hope it's nothing.
