trying to stay calm and cool.....

Hey guy's, ok trying to stay cool.... I was closing down our pool yesterday, had to go in and vacuum the bottom, Lisa called me in for lunch, and the expression on her face was one of dread. In the area between my shoulder and neck is a golfball size lump. I have my regular maintance visit on the 27th with my oncologist, I'm going to wait till then to show her. Kind of scary, because that's how my first cancer appeared.... Vinny

    Ohhh...
    Ohhh Vinny...I don't like the sounds of that. I don't think I could wait until the 27th..."not knowing" would make me a nervous wreck. Twice a week I have Steve check for lumps in the area's I can't reach or see on my body. Heck of a deal we have to contend with...my most positive good thoughts are with you dear friend. Needless to say...keep us informed. Hang in there buddy...Love, Sue

    Dang!
    Gosh, Vinny. I know this is scary. I'm keeping everything crossed
    that it's not cancer. I'd suggest you get it checked out asap if you can.
    I wouldn't wait both for peace of mind and quick action if necessary.

    Please keep us updated.

    Hugs, prayers and positive thoughts/energy buddy,

    hey Guy's, thanks for the response's, I think I'm just going to wait, a couple of weeks won't make a difference. I feel like I'm a hypochondriac all the time, feeling so worn down all the time, I think the worse, but my doctor feels I'm doing great! LOL

    Hey Vinny
    I don't know Vinny if I was you I would have been knocking on the centers door about 20 minutes after I found out there was a lump. Not trying to be funny.It's just the way I am. John

    Stay Strong and Positive
    Hi Vinny,
    My thoughts and prayers to you. Keep the faith.
    Do what you think is best but I would rather address the lump sooner rather than later.

    I agree with everyone else. Go now!!! If it's nothing which I pray it is than you have wasted time on worrying and if it is something it will be gone faster. Praying for you Vinny.

    Hi Vinny

    Gosh, it's always something, giving us anxiety and worry. I know that whatever this turns out to be, you will get through it..

    I have learned the hard way that being positive and having patience is what it takes.

    I am holding your hand in support and caring till you see the onc on the 27th. I understand everyone suggesting you go to the onc now, but really it is only another week. Not alot will change in that week. So try your best to remain calm and continue closing up the summer fun, since your fall weather will arrive soon.

    I am here for you always, just as you are for me.

    I fully understand the scary. I seem to have alot of that lately.

    Huge hugs to you and to Lisa

    Hi Vinny,

    Oh Boy. Another thing to think about. I'm so sorry. I know what you mean about feeling like you're a hypochondriac because I start to feel that way too, but you know we have just learned to be more diligent than others and we pay attention to our bodies. I hate it too but it is important that we notice things.

    I am praying that this new lump of yours is a big nothing and maybe you're getting a sinus infection and it made a gland swollen. Darn it.

    I am so tired of this sometimes I could scream!

    Take care and know that we are with you.

    Hugs,
    Donna
