Serious health scare, check up tomorrow


So a few weeks ago I went in for a brief operation. There was some tissue that was on its way to becoming cancer.

Afterwards, I learned that the progression was worse than they had expected. It wasn't cancer yet but it was just about becoming that. They cut out the affected areas and I should be ok. BUT: there was one spot where they weren't sure if they got everything.

Tomorrow, I will go in for a check up. To say that I am terrified is an understatement.

Somehow, I got through the weekend. At times, I cried a lot. At other times, I kept myself busy. I watched youtube and cleaned the entire place for up to 6 hours at a time.

I will probably take a sleeping pill later just to get through the night.

I am in Europe. My appointment is tomorrow at 7.30 am ETS.

Is anyone even reading this part of the forum? Wish me luck? I am so scared.

Hope all goes well. Hang in there. I understand what it's like to suffer through a health scare, I found out I have some issues with my retinas last summer. Try to feel better and just keep on keeping on the best you can.

Health stuff is the worst. Hope everything will come out as well as can be expected. The C word is always scary no matter what.

Fingers crossed, well wishes. Hope every thing ends up being okay.

The truth is strictly what the ones in power perceives it to be.

Enjoy any good things, even the little and menial ones, as you will never know what impending distresses could descend upon you in a moment.

Break a leg, unless that's where the trouble is

And I always thought this would be
the land of milk and honey
Oh but I came to find out that it's
all hate and money
And there's a canopy of greed holding me down.

Thanks, everyone. It helps to post here.

I was at the hospital and they had to postpone the exam. Women's issues got in the way so any exam would have been pointless, they said.

I am now scheduled for next week's Thursday. It's going to be a pretty uneasy 9 days :/

Best of luck Lisa, nine days is quite an extended wait and my thoughts go out to you for any anxiety that it is pushing your way. Please keep us updated.

Live and let live

Good luck 🙂






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
