Doctor called-Bad News

As I was reading your post and all the wonderful responses, Ruth, all I could think of was "Thank God we have this website." How frightened you must be but how good it is to know we're not alone. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I have some tests coming up myself and can sense cancerhead creeping in here and there. I have to remind myself that I'm in God's hands.

God bless you and let us know how you're doing.

Dear Ruth,
You are in my prayers. I am hoping to hear good news from you after your next appt. The normal exam and ct scan are good!! Praying for this to be nothing at all.

Hi, Ruth!

I immediately thought about Rosalie's experience from last year, so I'm glad that she posted. Her number went up then came back down. I think a steady rise and rise and rise is what is worrisome. My doctor says they usually don't do anything until a CA125 number climbs above 100. But he added that he would be troubled if it started climbing.

Please keep us posted on how your tests go. In the meantime, try not to think about it. I know -- easier said than done -- but . . . it's important to enjoy life, so every day that I'm alive makes me happy.

Thanks everyone for your words of support. I'm feeling better about all of this. I just had a bad week at work. I am manager of a 50 bed wing at a long term care facility. We usually have 2 or more hospice patients on my wing. This week we had a 53 year old (my age) breast cancer patient die. She died the same day my gyne/onc called.

thinking of you

Dear Ruth,
Thinking of you and sorry things are so tough. That is alot to deal with and so not fair. So sorry about your patient. That is always very difficult especially when it hits close to home.
Keep us posted.
I had my CA125 drawn yesterday. We place so much hope in this number, don't we? It's a shame there are so many variables in it.
s and ers are with you.

Hi Ruth,

s and s that those number are just jumping around for some non-cancer reason. I understand that it can happen a lot. Take Care.

I'm praying for you too, Ruth. My mom had cancer 10 years ago and she is now waiting for a biopsy on her thyroid. She cried when the doctor told her, even though her prognosis is still quite good (if it is thyroid cancer, it's nearly always a treatable one). She says she is going up and down a lot with her feelings, but she is trying her best to take the waiting one day at a time. Waiting is the worst!

Do trust that your life is in God's hands, as Marl said. I'm praying that you'll hear good news soon, and that God will give you his peace during this difficult time. So sorry about your 53 year old patient! Still so young (I'm 52) How hard that must have been for you!
