Topic: Guess It's My Turn....Not The turn I Wanted!
This may not and hopefully will not apply to this Board in the end but right now I am the scared one. I went to my Gastro Man last week complaining of extreme bloat and some discomfort. I had an Ultra Sound Monday of the stomach and am supposed to have a colonoscopy and endoscopy the 28th. Got a call yesterday afternoon about 4PM that there is a mass in my Mid Abdomen. They are ordering a CT Scan, maybe for this Friday. In the meantime I look like at least twins are coming and yesterday the pain was about an 8 on the pain scale ALL day. If it returns today I will call the gastro guy. I know it could be anything from a hernia to cancer. I was immediately grateful that they did not mention liver or pancreas. Me, knows too much, you know. Just needed to vent and I thank you for listening. I must say it is much easier being the adviser than being the patient!!! I have not let down yet as I am more concerned about Teddy's reaction. So, if you could just send a few prayers my way for the scan to be not so bad that would be great. I just feel like you are all my family!
