Above is a post a made a while ago…… … ok it was only a month ago.
Ok the test results from the needle biopsy were fine… no cancer…. but the lumps are still there so he sent me off to get another blood test (this was December 20ish) I went in last thursday to get the results because he called wanting to see me….. everything was fine except this one result which was high and it was for a range of different cancers (like stomach, bowel, etc), he said normally he wouldn’t be worried but because i still have the lumps he doesn’t want to take any risks. He said to make another appointment to see him in a weeks him and in he mean time he will speak to the two senior doctors there and ask them what they think he should do… he was wanting to refer me to the hospital to see a surgeon/specialist, he said it wont cost me anything because it’ll be on the public waiting list AND i wouldn’t be waiting long beaise my case is weird and has the word cancer so they will jump at the chance … so i made the appointment for this thursday to see him again… BUT yesterday i got a call from the hospital saying to come in thursday morning at 9:45……… OMG!!! i’m so scared now…. i know its probably nothing but omg i hate hospitals 🙁
why do i have to be a freak and have weird things about me 🙁
It’s been since July last year when i noticed the lymph lump thingy and they are still there and still the same… maybe a little bigger.
Just a little worried… I’ve only told mum and my boss because yeah i dont want to go round telling everyone that i’m worried only to find out its nothing… so i know i can talk about it here 🙂

aw I’m so sorry, but I’m sure it is nothing. Honestly, I don’t know hardly anyone who hasn’t had a “scare” or two, or who doesn’t have some random weird thing about them. I have had a few things happen in my life too and I’ve thought the same thing– why can’t I just be NORMAL. But then I really thought about it and realized that my brother, my cousins, my parents, my friends… almost everyone I can think of has had some weird medical unknown thing that has popped up. I also remember seeing a doctor on Oprah once talk about how the reason they don’t do full body scans on people hardly ever is because basically EVERYONE has a few weird things that aren’t actually dangerous but would freak you out and cause unnecessary tests.
Try to stay calm about it and not think the worst.

Hang in there! I was in a similar situation with swollen lymph nodes when I was 16, had the needle biopsy and all that, they came out benign. Some of them have never gone away, others come and go when I catch colds/flu. Fingers crossed yours are the same and just merely an annoyance. I’ll be thinking of you and hoping you get good news!

Ok, I get the same way as you, with freaking out about this kind of stuff. I know this sounds totally crazy, but try this, it might calm you down.
Think about the worst possible outcome, and live in that time for just a moment. Then spend as much time as you need thinking about how awesomely supportive your Fiance and family and friends will be, how they will come together for you in your time of need (if it comes down to it). Once you’re done with that, get up and do something that will completely take your mind off of it (I usually call a friend/family member or the hubs, or give my dog or the hubs (if he’s around) and extra hard squeeze).
I know it sounds counter productive, but really it washs warmth and comfort over you, and shows you that you can live through whatever is going on in your life.

@MrsSl82be Thanks for the advice… i dont think i will do that at work… might wait till i get home LOL as i’m a bit of an emotional wreck at the moment… dont want tears at work.
Once again thanks for the supportive words… i will keep you updated.
I think i’m worried about what is going to happen on thursday aswel… i’m terrified of needles and worried that i might have to get some for tests or something… hopefully it’s just scans and feeling and nothing pointy and sharp lol.

I was diagnosed with cancer a few years ago and for me the worst part was being diagnosed. I didn’t tell anyone until it was 85% confirmed for the same reasons. Not knowing what your dealing with is really scary. I know is sounds weird but once they said oh yeah it’s cancer, this type, this stage, etc etc…. I was ok. I could put my energy towards quality treatment. I hope things go well and that everything comes back clear. Try to put your energy towards what you are going through at that time. The what if’s were a lot harder for me than they needed to be.
I’m glad you posted this, I saw your first post and was wondering how it turned out.
