Glad to hear. Hope more good news moving forward.

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.

That's awesome, hopefully the rest of your results come back OK.

Here's to hoping that you are reassured with the other half of your results!

Let's wait for the rest of the results on Monday but yeah, right when it matters the most my body seems to not let me down. I think. OMG. Head spinning. Going for a run to process.

Great news!

Just spoke to the hospital.

The results of the second test are in. She said something about a particular cell type. I didn't really get the biology, of course. She said that they are now running another sample to be sure. Those results will be in by this week's Friday. She said to call back then.

She said that if all goes well we will wait for 3 months to see what the cells are doing. Her tone of voice sounded strange though. Maybe she was just stressed with patients. Or maybe it wasn't actually good and she wanted to wait for Friday to be sure before she tells me the bad news. I probably shouldn't read too much into her tone.

Hm. I have no clue what is going on. Great results on the first test, not sure on the second. This may be good, this may not be good. I will have to wait until Friday.

In the mean time, I read a fair bit on pre stage cells. Healthy cells develop into cancer via multiple pre stages. That development takes years. During that process it is possible that pre stage cells get stuck at a pre stage and simple remain there for years. From there, they may move on to become cancer. Or they reverse course and return to being normal. The more advanced the pre stage, the higher the likelihood of the cells turning into cancer.

That is why they are watching cells. With some organs they can actually watch this entire process, with others they can't (there you only know when it is too late).

This waiting game is one hell of a ride.

Thanks to everyone still following this. I wouldn't know what to do without this thread

Went for a long walk in the forest. Anxiety is back. It is going to be another hellish week until Friday. I will have to get through every day a few hours at a time just like I have done these past weeks and months.

I spoke to my GP. He said I am too young to have that kind of thing. I agree. It is strange and horrible. Hopefully it will be ok.

Oh man :/

I don't think I've spoken to you before - but I'm sorry you're going through all this. It must be very scary.

I hope you're doing okay anyway.

It's been a bad day and the day isn't even over yet.

I slept really poorly, I woke up every hour or so.
Got through the morning with coffee and by relapsing into smoking cigarettes (again!)
Went to the forest in the afternoon. That was nice. I worked on the laptop and enjoyed the last bit of summer.
The minute I left I could feel the despair.

Maybe things will be ok. The first test was good and maybe running another sample for the second test means that test was also good and she wants to be sure. She did say that if the test comes back good then we will wait 3 months to see.

I have lived well all of my life. I always took care of my health and went to every single check up. My results were always negative until the spring when I was suddenly near cancer.

That was bad enough. But for this thing being spread out and them not catching every cell during the operation? They did their best, I am sure. But how could it come to this? What a terrible thing to happen. Every single doctor I spoke to is surprised at how bad things are. And that I never had one bad check up in 15 years.

This thing has dominated my life since the spring. I have barely worked in months. My savings are dwindling. Most days evolves around getting through the day. I can't do this anymore.

What you are going through sounds absolutely horrible, I am so sorry that you are facing this. You are in my thoughts, and I am wishing you well - I hope everything turns out okay.






Live and let live

@zonebox Thanks

It's just been too many months of serious worry. Hopefully I will get good news on Friday. I need to catch a break. I cannot wait to feel positive again.

I know that feeling. Waiting to find out is one of the worst feelings in the world.

Is it just me or is it getting crazier out there.

Yesterday was a good day. I was busy al day and didn't get a chance to think.

In quiet moments, some dark thoughts crept up on me but I stayed busy and that worked.

Today it is a little harder. But tomorrow I will find out. So it is only another 24h to go.

I keep thinking that this entire episode (spring to now) is turning into a life changing experience. Whether I will be ok or not.... it has changed me. I will probably never not appreciate life. Because things can take a turn very quickly.
