Thanks Lori :)
I have been through this before, but everytime it happens it still makes me nervous... understandibly of course! LOL... I just pray for good things and keep hoping my luck continues on... It really helps to have this website to post on so you don't feel totally alone.. I mean, my husband is supportive and so is my best friend, but they can't possibly really feel what I feel inside ya know? Only other people who have walked in your shoes can really understand the fear you feel.
I found this website when I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, thank goodness I caught that early and have been able to manage my disease with medicines to the point that I feel pretty good most of the time. Although, I have been flaring up just a bit lately and have increased my meds some, but stress is such a trigger and I'm in a lot of that right now so it's not a big suprise that I am flaring up a little.
You know, it's a bit funny, I recently posted here stating how you all deserve applause for the bravery in fighting the fight against b/c..., my son's stepmother and a friend of mine have recently been diagnosed with bc and I have been doing a bit of reading here to see what you guys go through with treatments, etc. I wanted to understand what they were going through a little better and now I'm posting here for myself... this lump is driving me crazy.. lol.. It's sore now cause I keep messing with it, hoping it will just go away... geezz...
Well, I won't freak out too much if they want to do more testing right away, I want to get to the bottom of this ASAP and get on with whatever needs to be done, (if anything)..
Well, my dr. appointment is tomorrow at 9:45.... I'll keep you posted
Thanks again for the reply Lori :) It's much appreciated
