I'll be seeing more doctors. Kidney cancer?
Tuesday, February 12, 2013
I'll post my ultrasound records later. 2.8cm (about 1") hard mass. Doc said they didn't say 'suspicious' which he didn't like. He wasn't reassuring, and after I looked online, I'm not reassured either. Phew. Need to find my happy place. It has been so long. I picked up a Bernie Segal book at a used bookstore about laughter and cancer; guess I'll grab it off the shelf.
Supposed to get CT scan next (which I'm not keen to do as I react to the dye) and/or biopsy. Hairdresser said why don't they just biopsy it, what's the use of the scan? I think it's just medical protocol. TTYL. That hard mass hurts like a booger sometimes, like someone is poking a bruise, nagging me. Other times I don't feel it at all.
Life keeps throwing me curveballs and I can't catch my breath before there's another one lobbed my way. I need some happy and sunny in my life. I need a hug.
