Mel, not sure I have ever seen anyone jumping so far ahead in their mind and emotions about
PC without as much as a diagnosis. Sounds like you are flat worrying yourself to death.
At least wait for your biopsy, and for your sake, I hope the entire conversation of PC becomes a mute point to you. Sounds like you are "what iffing" yourself into an early grave.
If you ever get a real PC dx., you will still have plenty of time to sort out possible solutions, if any are needed. Just hate to see anyone so uptight about
what has even happened yet.
Perhaps you would be best to put the whole subject of PC to bed until you get your biopsy done.
