Doctor visit...

Went to visit a new doctor for some recurring problems I've been having. She was very nice and thorough. She was alarmed when I told her I had cancer and the doctor didn't do a hysterectomy. She thought I was mistaken about the diagnosis and I told her I knew for sure, but she was more than welcome to look it up on the records. She did. I had cancer. Because of several problems since, she is astonished that the doctor never did a hysterectomy. (which is the treatment for that type of cancer) So, she is doing more tests (ultrasound, biopsy of uterus, blood work, and testing for ovarian cancer), but said that I will need to have a hysterectomy. The biopsy is to see if cancer has gone to the uterus. She said my chances of survival get lower and lower if I don't. She also said I had a 1 in 3 chance of the cancer becoming invasive (all over) Not good. She was visibly upset and said I was just too young for such trials. So, that being said, it looks like I'm going to have surgery in January (husband is off for 3 mos to help me recover) To be honest, it's a relief. I've been so concerned for years (had issues a while) that I will be glad to do it. Glad God brought her to town. :) The previous doctor just removed the cancer in the cervix and that was that. She said she read the report and the doctor didn't even leave the correct margins. Anyway, I should be just fine with the surgery and won't have anymore problems in that department as long as it hasn't spread... Praise God. Hallelujah. Amen. :)

  1. If we were neighbors I'd stop by with some gluten free treats and we could sit on the porch and visit about this. I just want to be sure that you are being taken good care of by this doctor. Let's pray.
