enyaw061032 Posted December 13, 2006 Share Posted December 13, 2006 I had my doctor's appointment this afternoon, and was told that the mediastinoscopy tissue/cells that were biopsied were negative in the samples tested; however, the surgeon said he was unable to get into one area wedged between my upper right lob and something else I couldn't understand. I have to go back to the hospital 5:30 AM Thursday morning for another bronoscopy, which the surgeon is going to do, and he said he could not promise he could get to it but he was going to give it his all. I was so nervous I didn't understand everything that was said. My upper GI and pelvic cat scan was negative for liver mets or low back mets. I don't know what to do or where to go if this other broncoscope doesn't find the are of concern. In the meanwhile, I have pending arrangements for an appointment with MD ANDERSON (sent them all test results, etc. )but hope and pray that I won't need to go there......hopefully not wishful thinking. I don't know how much more I can take of all this. My blood pressure is normally 135-145, but it soared to 212 during all this worry, and the nurse had to give me something to bring it down; she said the doctor said it was stroke territory, so guess it's a good thing my heart is strong enough. As you all know, I really get keyed up pretty bad over all this. Barb Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
