cancer thoughts and questions
Thursday, February 21, 2013
I called the doctor yesterday because I continue to have pangs of something in my right ovary so thought I'd better get it checked out instead of waiting for my insurance to kick in. By the questions the nurses and doctor is asking me, I can tell they are concerned about ovarian cancer as much as I am. So not a good time to not have insurance. But I finally called a friend last night who convinced me that making doctor Bill payments for the rest of my life is not a bad thing and to just get it taken care of. That's so hard to accept when I just spent the last two years paying off all my bills. I am down to just one last credit card I am paying off and it's down to about a thousand dollars. After that, all I owe is my student loans. It.s rather nice being able to say my monthly bills only come up to less than $600 a month. How often can someone say that? And that includes my cell phone and car insurance! So to go from finally able to relax to knowingly walking into financial chaos is solo hard to do. But then of course, ovarian cancer might be a good reason to go broke over. And it's only 3 months. Just till June. Does anyone know, can ovarian cancer be detected prior to symptoms with testing? I know they can do a call125 but I've heard those are not completely accurate. I mean, since usually, women with ovarian cancer don't realize they have a problem until they start to bleed or lose weight. Is there a way to catch it before these symptoms start or do they just end up finding it when they go in and take ovary out for other reasons? I suppose I could call my doctor to find that out, but that's friends are for!
