I try not to complain and I am a very private person, but I went for my follow-up appt for my results of my mammogram that I had done a couple of weeks ago and it showed a new spot on my breast and I have to go for a double biopsy on 2/3, the doctors says she thinks it is just a large cyst, but wants to do this just to make sure. I must say even though she says it is prob. nothing, and I am sure it is nothing too. I am going to very honest here, I am very worried about this as we have a very strong history of breast cancer in our family and my doctor knows this. I may be reading way to much into this, but she had a very differnt tone to her voice this time and much more concerned than I have ever seen her in the last 2 years that i have been going, and I go to her every 6 mos. I am telling you 2009 seems to be starting off to a not so great start, I have not been feeling well for quite a long time, but I just keep pushing myself to do what I have to do. I went to the doctor and my blood work came back, my ANA was positive, and I didnt know what in the world they were talking about, they said I may have Lupus, I went to the specialist and he seems to think I have fybromialga and not Lupus, which is a great thing if you have to have one or the other, he ordered more blood work and it came back postive again, I dont go back to him until March to talk about this, so I am praying he doesn't change his mind and says it is Lupus. The meds that he gave me seem to be helping, so hopefully I can just continue to take these and that is that! I know I have so much to be thankful for, this is just a small hurdle I have to get through and we will, my husband is so supportative and sweet, I just dont want to worry him, he has enough stress to deal with.
To my daughter, life is short so enjoy every minute.
Sorry I just had to get that all off my chest
