Last week I spent the entire day and night awake and in pain in my abdomen.  So last Thursday, I went to my internist and reported it.  He ordered a cat scan of my abdomen and I went on Friday morning.
This afternoon, I had an appointment with my oncologist and he called the hospital for the results.  We stood there and waited for the faxed report.  The outcome was good.  Everything was negative.  Whew!  Passed another test!!. 
The doctor also did a physical exam and did not find anything.  He said it was probably just stomach/bowel upset and nothing more.
I have another appointment with my surgeon/ gyenocologist on June 9th, so I'll let you know the results, but I expect the outcome will be good.
I thank you for your prayers for me and your well wishes.  It means the world to me.
God bless you all.

Thank You so much for all your replies.  They have meant the world to me.  Please know that I mean that sincerely.
The pain has subsided for the most part.  I think it is gastrointestinal.  I have a lot of burping that I didn't have before too.  Glad I had the test anyway, or these new symptoms would have worried me.  And yes, praise the Lord, indeed.  He is always with me.  Again I say, Amen and Praise God.
Love to you all, my friends and a low pain day to all of you too.
