Test Results

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

I just got a call back from the dr from my colonoscopy. Of course, like usual, the person calling won't give me my full results and the only thing she confirmed was that the polyp was early cancer. I already assumed that since I had some removed 3 years ago. She said she has more to discuss which worries me some since there was other abnormalities that were biopsied as well. I think dr's get a kick out of making people worry though. They are making me wait till next Tuesday to come in so maybe I should take that as a sign that it's nothing too bad if they aren't trying to have me in right away. Maybe. These are those moments when I have to realize that there is nothing I can do but put my faith in God that everything is going to be ok. I'm a survivor and I'm too stubborn to be defeated. I just have no patience for waiting for results all the time. emoticon

    What I really hate is that some of them make it sound so bad and then make me wait. I had an ob call me over labs a few years ago. They told me I needed to come in to discuss them. I was freaking out, in tears, waiting for these results. On my way to my appointment, I was so upset that I spilled hot coffee all over the inside of my thighs and had to pull over and yank my pants off on the side of the road. I got into the office and talked to the dr for her to tell me that everything was fine. My mouth dropped open and I asked if they really called me in, made me wait just to tell me that everything was ok? I was so heated! What is wrong with them? Do they feed off from negativity?

    OMG! I can't believe they are going to wait that long to tell you what is going on in your body. That will cause undue stress.

    I received a call from my nephrologist because I had lab work done yesterday. They explained everything to me and made arrangement to go to the hospital for blood. I don't like getting blood--I prefer blood platelets which is not really blood.

    emoticon I've been living with cancer for almost 10 years now, and I know how hard it is to wait for results. I've had a lot of different tests over the years, and aside from my routine blood tests, I still experience a lot of anxiety waiting for results.

    Thanks DJ4Health. I've always told people that if I was ever diagnosed I wouldn't do chemo or radiation because I sat by my friend watching him go through that and I wouldn't do that to my kids. When my uncle was diagnosed with colon cancer, I had done a lot of research on and found things for him. Although, the only bad part was that he was so far advanced that it had spread all the way into his lungs that there wasn't much hope. The foods helped him feel better and he lived longer than they thought but the dr's told him for years it was just hemorrhoids. It was probably 3 or more years before they finally realized it was cancer. (personally, I think my aunt needs to sue for malpractice but that's just my opinion)

    I hate meds and would much rather go an alternate way: foods, herbs, etc. My boyfriend is already trying to come up with a list of foods he's gonna somehow sneak into my cooking, like asparagus. emoticon lol

    Just read them with an open mind and don't let the doctors scare you into doing things that you don't want. Plus you should know that less than 3% of chemo patients survive chemo and cancer with conventional meds. I know my husband died of it and the last so-called treatment caused him to get more tumors and in all of his body.

    Colonoscopy's really do suck but they can definitely save a life! I've been having one every 1-2 years since I was 25 and I'm 29 now. I have my Mom's rare family cancer gene so I have to be tested all the time for lots of things. I'm in the clear so far! I have so much cancer in my family it's ridiculous. I'm sure the doctors probably just want to take a precaution with you and if they're waiting a week to talk to you, you're right, it shouldn't be that bad. Best of luck to you and I will be thinking of you, emoticon

    Thanks! I could use all the prayers I can get. I despise the colonoscopies. I didn't think I would have to go through these for another 20 years. Every 3 years sucks! lol

    Good for you for having colonoscopies...I will start having them after next year...(my dad died of colon cancer--no screening). I think it's wonderful that you have taken care of your health. If a doctor is making you wait for results, I'm sure things will be fine. Keep us posted on your results...I'll put in a good word for you with the man upstairs.
