  • Bad news from the Dr.

    Well, I had to go to the Dr. on Friday to follow up on some medical tests that had been run a few weeks ago. The news that I got was NOT what was I expected hear. I have to undergo some further tests - which will be taking place over the next two weeks or so - to confirm the diagnosis, but the doctor seems to think that I may ovarian cancer. I have a ovary sized (basically the size of a golf ball) cyst on my ovary. I have had pre-cancerous cells in the past in the female region, a prior cyst on my other ovary, over the age of 35, and smoke so this all makes me a prime candidate.

    I know that doctors usually avoid mentioning that "C" word so they don't scare the patient, but she mentioned it right off the bat. It took me a few days to process all of this. The doctor has already talked about options with me (seems to me a bit like putting cart before the horse if you ask me seems how they aren't sure) on how to treat this after the results come back. I made the decision over 4 years ago to shut down the baby factory so if I have to lose my ovaries it's not going to be the end of my world. Mostly I am just sitting here trying to keep from stressing out over what may be nothing. That is a heck of a lot easier said than done. The only thing that I DO know for sure is that if this does turn out to be cancer like the doctors think that I will do whatever it takes to get better. I am to darn young and ornery to go out like THAT!

    I knew at that precise moment that he and I would never get into a fistfight over a woman.

                    I'd be camping out at some specialists office making sure that they start some sort of procedure just the second that they're able to. I'd want whatever they're going to do done yesterday. I HATE having stuff like that hanging over my head...

                      Wait for the diagnosis, just because you're a 'candidate' does not mean you have it. If worrying made you healthy I'd say to worry your *** off but we both know that will make the situation worse.

                      If it is OC take one step at a time, don't live your whole life in one day in stress. Take one day at a time, if that's too hard take it one moment at a time. Fight it with a vengance but keep your mind and life active on other things to the greatest extent possible. That suggestion in not intended to put you in denial rather it's to not let your health condition define who you are. Do not let it define you.

                      Talk to a professional or a trusted friend, don't beat yourself by letting "mental toxins" make the situation worse.

                      God bless and good luck.

                        You will be fine.
                        My fiance just went through that 2 years ago. Had to carry her to the bathroom among other things. The hardest part will be the recorvery and where they cut you. My understanding is that while the cut is healing, it tends to itch something fierce. So you look like an alley cat going to town with your hand in your pants.

                        You will be fine and irritable, but you will be fine.

                          This profession is not for people looking for positive reinforcement from the public. Very often it can be a thankless job and you can't desire accolades, because those are not usually forthcoming. Just do your job to the best of your ability and live with the decisions you've made.

                              First let me just say that I thank everyone for the prayers/good thoughts/good vibes that are being sent my way. Not to sound greedy, but I will take all of them that I can get!!!

                              CityCopDC - LMAO @ the alley cat comment!!!! I don't know how this pain will compare to a c-section but if it is anywhere close to that pain then I am somewhat familiar with the pain from the cut that would be required should they take out parts. I had to have a c-section with both of my kids... yeah it's gonna suck out loud, but it beats having this thing in me all to pieces.

                              BrickCop - I have been told that the attitude of the patient can make a big difference in their success of winning the battle. I gotta say that this little 5'4" 125 lb. ball of fire is pretty ticked off at that golf ball size tumor. I have two beautiful kids that and I'll be darned I am gonna let them grow up without me watching ALIVE and in person.

                              Deputy - ummm thanks for the offer, but at this point if they take out parts and I no longer have to go through that monthly torture I don't know that I would shed copious tears of sorrow. In fact I might even consider auctioning off my leftover "supplies" on e-bay I'd be that distraught! Even better PM me your address and I'll be sure to ship them directly to you no payment needed...
