tkelley Posted June 15, 2009 Share Posted June 15, 2009 Hi Guys, Well the 11th was a year for dad. As I am sure others understand, I can't believe it has been that long and in other ways it feel like an eternity....My mom, myself and the kids trekked up to NY to the cemetery and a mass in my dad's name. It was nice, most of his family was able to be there. I was finally able to have some alone time at the cemetery which was hard but I was able to grieve without my kids watching me and that was cathartic. Right before I left, I went in for a routine gyn exam and they thought my uterus was enlarged and had me come back for an ultrasound. The tech wasn't looking more than a minute when she left and got the nurse practicioner who then left and got the doctor.....I knew from experience that it wasn't a good thing They found a very large cyst (12 cm x 12 cm) that was obstructing their view of my ovaries and is apparently pushing up my uterus. They did say it is mainly fluid filled from what they can see (maybe a small solid piece of about 3 cm) and that it is smooth which is supposedly a good thing. They ran a CA-125 to check cancer counts and called while I was in NY to say it was elevated.....so, now they want a CAT scan this week. I have an appointment with my gyn office this afternoon for a surgery consult and an appointment for a second opinion on Weds. As of right now, not sure when the scan will be. Apparently the CA-125 is not a reliable indicator so I am hanging on to that hope but know not to get too excited until I have more info.... if there is any hint that this is cancer I am going to consult a gyn/onc...... Sorry this was so long but needed a place to get this off my chest without making my mom too crazy....and I thought those "scanxiety" days were behind me Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
