SHIT

After 2 weeks of waiting, 3 phone calls to the hospital to get the damn ultrasound results to my Gyno. The nurse just called and said that since the cysts are still on the ovary, they need to do a CA125 test for ovarian cancer. Isn't life great?

I'm really trying not to freak out because my head is telling me it is just normal protocal to rule it out. I wish my heart would understand it. I'm stressed to the max with school, work, and not getting enough rest and now this. Lovely.

I have my Remicade treatment on Tuesday so the nurse will fax the order to my RA doc and they'll take the blood then while taking it for my usual tests. BUT I do know that the RA nurse will call me the next day with my results (she does of all tests) so at least I'll know quickly.

Damn... damn... damn... I am hoping and praying that they are just ruling it out. You are under so much pressure, Karen. It scares me. I hope you aren't a pressure cooker ready to blow. If you need to talk... I am here for you !!

LOVE YOU !!

I can really sympathise with this, having been in the same position, and I know it's very scarey. But, mine wasn't cancerous, and hopefully yours won't be. "Big hugs*

Very scary stuff, but I think you're right. They have to rule stuff out. It's probably just routine. Hang in there.

Hi Karen.
I'm sorry they told you you need another test on Friday and now you have to wait until Tuesday. Lean on us, we are her for you. ((hugs))
