Dear Liz and Donna,
Yesterday, Tuesday I had very little time to post a reply to your concern, Thank you.
I had a few concerns from a transvaginal sono June 27, 2011, and abdominal ultra sound
Oct 11, 2011. Small cyst on left ovary, and mild prominence of pancreatic duct. I had a
MRI Nov 14, 2011 to ease my concern. The results came back negative. On Jan 30, 2012 another transvaginal, the cyst has reduced in size. On Feb 1, 2012 I had a pelvic sono, negative.
I remember when I was free, and not having to go through all this. The only problem I had
Now to my visit with the oncologist this Monday. After looking at all my tests, she
confirmed the MRI took care of any concerns my doctor and myself might have had. Since
the last Pet Scan I had was in Dec 2010, I wanted another Scan. Since my last 3 Pet Scans
were negative for activity, she would rather not. The radiation problem. Also, all the blood tests I have had during the year 2011 came back normal. Therefore, I will
be seeing my oncologist in another 6 months for my 6 month check-up. She will then order
another Pet Scan for Oct 2012.
Wait, one more test coming up. Oh boy. I have an appointment with the Gastro doctor this
Monday, Feb 13. The doctor and I have to discuss me having an endioscopy. Since my
iron levels were a bit low, my doctor wants to check for internal bleeding.
As you can see, there was a reason why I waited another day to post my history.
I have a question for everyone. I know what an endioscopy is. I have had this before when
my iron levels were low. My oncologist mentioned endioscopy ultra Sound. What kind of
test is this?????
I forgot to mention one more test LOL. Very minor and no big deal. Because my small
bowel perforated, I had a test for H Pilori in Dec 2011.. Negative.
Well kids, that's it. Is this confusing or what? I can't stand it anymore. After my
endioscopy, I want to be free of doctors. This is not to be. All of us have a new
normal. The doctors and tests are part of our lives now. As long as they help us, I
guess it's OK.
You are all in my thoughts and prayers. All my love Maggie
