waiting, waiting...

Scanxiety in effect!  Had a core needle biopsy yesterday for a breast mass they've been ingoring for 2 years (and that had lit up on my PET last Oct), but my recent MRI showed growth, so Dr Evil stuck a staple gun in it yesterday (just kidding, was a special needle), and now it's off to path....and I wait most impationently.

 

Today was my 6 month (actually almost 8!) follow up CT for RCC, and I got the impression from tech my dr would have results by tomorrow.  That does not bode well.  When my MRI was back within hours, I braced myself for bad news which it was indeed. 

 

Crossing my fingers they dont torture me with having to wait over the weekend on the report.  Not that it matters much since I don't see the Uro until June 13th, nor the gen surgeon until June 18th.  I'm none to excited about possibly winning the Trifecta of cancers.

    Memorial Day weekend wait

    My first CT was in the days leading up to Memorial Day 2002. I had peeed the wrong color. My GP  just thought I had broken a blood vessel "what me worry".

    I never thought of having Cancer and who ever heard of Kidney Cancer. And I never gave a thought to something called scanziety. Maybe its better to go to the beach and enjoy for the holiday weekend than lose sleep over something you can not control.

    Anyway, the reason I'm anxious is if my bio comes up +, it would be my 3rd cancer diagnosis in less than 2 years.  And each one is more serious than the next.  Not sure I even want to know the results....

    Thanks hun.  GL to you guys

    Thanks hun.  GL to you guys too xox.

     

    PS.  you can request a copy of the results from the hospital.  I always ask and sign the release form at checkin for tests.  Half the time I receive the discs and report in the mail before my doctor calls.

    Rains and Mr Phred-thinking of you both!

    Rains I hope you get some news soon and that it's good news for a change, you are certainly due a break. The wait time always seems endless and you can't focus on much of anything else.

    Phredswife, I can't believe you have been made to wait two weeks, talk about adding to the stress. I wish both you and Mr Phred all the best tomorrow, none of this is easy!

     

    Keeping you both in my thoughts!

     New Zealand how lovely, I know it's a beautiful place to live, but like Austalia treatment is a bit limited when you have cancer. I have family in Wellington and Turangi.

    Visit!

    That would be nice, I should probably make that one of my goals, along with seeing my grandchildren. Which could be some time off; as my daughter doesn't even have a full time boyfriend as yet, lol!

    Take care:)
