Just waiting for the bad news/good news

I'm new to this site, but so far it has been a blessing to me. I had a CA125 on Friday, and a CBC and I'm waiting and pacing. I'm 44, with a huge fibroid in utero, and cystic ovaries with a solid spot that alerted the gyn to the possibility of cancer. My surgery is due to be scheduled for the first week of June, unless my doc decides to do it sooner. An oncologist will be standing by, which I guess is standard procedure, but I've been doing the tuna all weekend..my faith has been keeping me from going nuts..and now this site has blessed me beyond belief...I'm not as scared anymore, and I now know that I can face whatever is ahead of me, CAT scans included!!!

I'll keep you posted--in the meantime, thanks for being there!!!!

Waiting for the word from tests is SO hard. It sounds like you've got a good doctor who is watching out for you.

I feel better than I have in years, so you never know where the road will lead you.

Keep us posted and we'll have our fingers crossed.

Hi there - Yes, waiting is hard. My husband and I had planned on having a huge barn dance a few days after I received the cancer diagnosis. We went ahead with it and had a great time. Stay busy, shop, visit with loved ones, take walks...stay busy!

Waiting is THE Worst Part

This is a great site with great women. The best thing in your post was that you will have a gyn/onc standing by--if they do run into cancer, that's the doctor of choice.

Is "doing the tuna" like flip flopping? We don't "tuna" in Wisconsin. I suppose we could say "tipping the cow" but I don't think tipped cows flip flop around.

Flip flopping all over is normal. The waiting is the worst--brings out all the imagination to run wild. Once you get the results, you will at least know--and once you know, you have the power to correctly do things and make sensible decisions for you.

Yes, the waiting is always the worst and ususally seems to be endless.
I too am glad that an oncologist/ gynecologist will be there with you. I would prefer he do the surgery but knowing that he will be there is comforting.

I do wish you lots of good luck and am also curious about what "doing the tuna" means.

That is another good feature of this site. We get to learn different phrases from each other.
