shakehead  Well friends I got a call yesteday from the clinic saying they had a cancellation and could I be there at 2:30 for my biopsy results. I told them I could and when I got off the phone the fear I felt almost took my breath away. I figured if they were calling me in early it had to be cancer. Its alot different thinking about it than having to hear it said.
Anyhow me and hubby went up their and it turned out that the biobsy that they did wasnt a good one. So now I have to go in next Tuesday for a needle biopsy and I wont find out the results until either Friday or the following Monday.
I would have posted yesterday but just had to have time to deal with this. Thank you all so much for your prayers and please keep on praying. Love you all

I am very glad that it wasn't bad news, and that the new biopsy gives you an all clear. Sorry that you have to keep going thru this, though. My prayers are with you!! :) Good luck!

Shirley, I'm so sorry you're going through so much fear and stress while trying to find out what is going on. That's so hard.

When you said the biopsy they did before wasn't a good one, do you mean it was inconclusive and that's why they're doing another one?

Stay strong. You're going to get through this one step at a time. You can do this. You are strong enough. *hugs*

Thanks Kermit and Princess, and yes the results were inconclusive.
The needle biopsy they are doing now is a needle biopsy. Dr. said that one out of three of these biobsies the lung collapses. So much to look forward too. This biopsy will also only tell if it is cancer wont tell if its benign so once again the results would be inconclusive if it is benign and then they would have to get a biopsy surgically. Like I said before so much to look forward too.
Once again thanks for the replies, and keep me in your prayers please.
Gentle Hugs

Shirley, thanks for explaining. You can count on having every single spare prayer and good wish I can muster up. I'm probably one of the biggest cowards you're going to find - but sometimes when I'm anticipating something it helps me to think of how strong I'll feel after after I get it over with. Remind yourself that you can handle this. You can do it. You're a lot stronger than you think you are.

I would be a little scared, too. Hope that your lung does not collapse and that the results are good.

confused  Wow, how scary that must be. I hope everything turns out well for you. My son had to have the needle biopsy two years ago(several swollen lymoh nodes in his kneck), he was 8. The whole process made me age 20 years. He, of course, was no worse for ware and thought looking at all the machines was neat. It was a pretty smooth process, thankfully. My thoughts and prayers will be with you..hugs. Heather smurf

Thanks all of you so much. It is not so bad now that I have a few days before the next biopsy. I am trying not to think of it too awfully much. But there are some things I cant help but do the what if on. I was with my mom the night she died, it started out in her uterus but ended up dieing because it spread to her lungs. I dont want to go out of this world gasping for air that is not there. If it comes down to it and there is no more hope I want to be unconcious at the end. Is that a terrible thing to wish for. Im sorry friends just having some rough thoughts right now.

No, I don't think it's a terrible thing to wish for. But you're a long way from there right now!

Shirley, last year I was seeing a hemotoligist/oncologist and had a couple of bone
marrow biopsies. The next month I had a breast biopsy. Both times waiting for test
results I hoped and prayed for the best. I was lucky, but in both cases the thought of
dying crept in. I think those thoughts are natural. Only God knows our fate and I put
my trust in Him. I do wish to die in my sleep and wake up in Heaven.

Wishing you best of luck Shirley and I continue to pray for you. Sending a gentle hug :)

Shirley, I'm sorry about your mom. Those memories must be so hard. You've got a lot of people praying and sending good vibes your way - and I really believe that's powerful stuff.

If it helps, maybe keep talking it out here. We all understand.

*hugs*

Here's an idea...and I'm only saying this because I believe we've all experienced what you're going through right now, in fact, I'm doing it too" she says with a hint of sarcasm.

How about we pitch a new game show. We could call it, what else,
"The Waiting Game"

I'm thinking about you.
