Well I finally got my dx. He told me that he took 5 samples, 4 of which came back negative and 1 with a very early stage of ca. I was probably the happpiest person ever to be told I have stage 1 ca. Tomorrow I go for my c/t scan and then on to see the surgeon next week. Thank you all for the support and prayers. These past few days have been very stressful and now that I know where I stand, I can do something about it. I will keep everyone posted. Bless you all!

    Wow Denise,
    So good to hear that news (sounds strange to say it good to hear you have Stage 1 cancer) but it's true!
    You just get done what needs to be done and keep your energy for moving forward and you'll be fine.

    Let us know what happens from here

    Yay, Denise! You are home free! They will just snip it out, no chemo, no radiation. I think I'm going to cry. I am so happy for you! You knew you'd have at least a little cancer in there, and you got the best possible DX.

    OK, y'all, now I need your prayers. I did my CT scan yesterday after a year long stage III battle. I find out if I am done...or in big trouble. My followup is Monday. It's going to be a hard weekend. I have no reason to believe I'm in trouble, but I'm pretty scared nonetheless.

    Here's a little thing I do with the radiologist after a CT scan.......

    Since they technically cannot tell you anything prior to a physician reading the scan, right before I leave, I will ask one of them, "So, will I be seeing you in another year, or sooner to scope things out?" They usually give a wink and say, "more than likely we'll see you in a year." Just enough piece of mind to tide me over until I get the official "ok" from the doc!

    Have a great weekend everyone!
