Hi all,
This is a bit off topic, but I had to have laser surgery yesterday for cervical cancer.  Everything went well and the oncologist told my husband that he's pretty sure he got it all.  He said he'd be monitoring me very closely to be sure that I remain cancer-free, but that there is always a chance of recurrence, especially since this is my second recurrence in two years already. 
Also, I have an appointment with a Rheumatologist/Immunologist at Vanderbilt on Monday.  Hopefully we'll get some answers these puzzling symptoms which have been going on for a year.  If not, at least we'll rule out a few other things.  I'll let you know how that goes.
Hugs to all.

I'm so sorry to hear about the cancer Lisa! Goodness a second reoccurance? Hopefully this is the last one! Hang in there.

I'm so sorry you've had to go through this again! I also hope this is the end of it for you, and you have many more years of good health.  Take care..
