    I have a Biopsy scheduled for 1:30 today at Obgyn's.

    So far they have done Pap, blood work, internal sonogram, and now Biopsy today.
    Please hold out a good thought or prayer that all tests come back normal.

    Oh I am SO sorry - they HOOVER. I have had both internal and external biopsies done down there. Had pre-cancer on my cervix when I was really young and had stage 0 cancer on my vulva twice. Not fun. Prayers for a clean biopsy for you!!!

    I'm sending caring supportive hugs your way, my friend. Of course you are "a little nervous" each of us would be (or have been) facing scarey circumstances. You will be surrounded by good thoughts, prayers and the aura of your CD family. DDD

    Thank you ladies...You are all so very kind.

    I am still shaken up from the experience...was every bit as awful as I thought it would be. Apparently my "cervix was fighting the Doctor"...I was so wishing one or the other would "surrender"!!!

    Well, as it turns out, my Pap is normal, my blood work is normal, but my internal sonogram is not. They have found a mass on the lining of my Uterus that is a concern. I should know more after the Biopsy results which will likely come back by Monday. They also have found fibroids but do not sound overly concerned about those.

    So...I wait. The good news is I shouldn't have to go through another internal Biopsy again...Next time if they "remove" anything it will likely be while I am asleep and in a hospital.

    My mom picked me up and I had her go in to the exam room and listen to what the Dr had already told me...2 sets of ears are definitely better than one in a Doctor's office I have always been told.

    I tried to imagine you all in a supportive circle holding my hands...it did help initially.
    I will let you all know what the Biopsy report says (hopefully by Monday).

    Love to each and all,

    Thank you all for the love, hugs, and prayers.

    I wouldn't be "so" concerned if I had taken better care of my body. Sigh...the last time I had a Pap was 8 yrs ago!
    We didn't have insurance and when I had my pyschotic breakdown Feb 07 it cost us around 10 thousand dollars!!!

    Over the last yr or so I have had HEAVY bleeding for weeks at a time and then nothing for close to 3 months. It's been very sporatic which is extremely unusual for me as I have always been a 28 day girl.

    We finally got insurance this past April and I decided to see a Dr around April 15th for an abcessed tooth. It was at that Dr visit that I found out I was dangerously Anemic. So much so that the Dr said if I were to need surgery they would have to give me a blood transfusion first. He also said if I were to be in an accident that I would simply bleed out on the scene. So I became alarmed.
    Then my mother and I were visiting with a friend and she mentioned that her mother had been very Anemic and was dxd with Cancer as "Cancer eats blood" she said.

    So finally I decided to see the OBGYN. I wish I had not waited so long.
    Just a heads up for all you gals...Please see your Dr regularly. You don't want to wait until the body is failing...better to be proactive.

    Thanks again for all the support.
    ps...Some symptoms of severe Anemia (that I had) are craving ice, insomnia, tired ALL the time, and pale skin.

    Have they told you how long before you can expect your results, Tammy? The waiting is so stressful. Hugs DDD

    You are such a kind hearted dear friend.
    Don't you worry though...as soon as I am called (hopefully Monday) I will let you all know the results.

    If there is a problem, I have spoken with husband, and we both agree that a family discussion should take place.
    I actually am prepared for this discussion...I am not afraid to die. I am more bothered by the idea that I will be in some pain or discomfort near the end of my life Whenever that may be.

    But...I will have you know that I do not feel "unwell". I actually feel better than I have in years since I started taking the Iron for the severe Anemia 3x a day.

    DDD, I know you have actually faced the real "threat" and are a survivor. I expect no less for myself.
    But as I said, I feel "okay" today and do not think the results will be negative.

    You know I love you DDD.
    Thank you and ALL for the care...
    This truly is my "home away from home" so to speak...my second family. And like so many, even when I can't find the words...I read and my heart goes out to you all.

    Just was thinking of you and remembered a "scare" I had in my 50's. There is a moral here...eventually, lol. Twenty years ago or so I discovered blood in the toilet. I didn't mention it to anyone but it worried me so I went to the library and checked out a book entitled something like "the ten signs of colon cancer" and took it home. I had EIGHT of the ten signs! I made an appointment to see the specialist and, believe it or not, I even took my husband with me (something I never do since I'm so independent by nature)! At the end of the appointment a colon exam was scheduled at the hospital for a few days later BUT the MD said "I have been in this specialty for thirty years. Many times I have patients come in with every symptom of colon cancer and they are 100% cancer free. Othertimes I have people come in with no symptoms at all and they have cancer. Don't worry all week!"

    Tammy, he was 100& right. I was aok although in my imagination I had myself making "arrangements". LOL! Last year I had NO symptoms and, of course, the results were not positive. I hope it is nothing to worry about for you but should it end up being a problem you will be able to handle what it is. Raising difficult children gives us a spine of steel and a complete appreciation for the Serenity Prayer. Hugs DDD
