here I go again

Well ladies, I am a little tense right now, so of course I turn to all of you. I know that you will understand all that is going through my head right now.

Quick recap.... I went to the onc doc at the end of June. He was hoping it was an infection but was mildly concerned about some things. Anyway, the kick-butt antibiotics he prescribed didn't seem to help the problems I am having. I was supposed to go back on the fifteenth of July for biopsies and ultrasounds.

Well, I chickened out and cancelled that appointment. My DH found out and made me reschedule. I am going tomorrow. I have tried to find the million reasons why I can't or don't need to go but DH and my biological sisters are right there to tell me I need to go.

Why am I having such a hard time now? I mean, sometimes I feel like I freak out about every little ache and suffer from cancerhead, but I have some things going on right now that are really not right at all normal and now I do NOT want to go get it checked. I keep telling myself that it is normal, I am over-reacting, it is nothing. But, I have no uterus and one of the things going on is that I am bleeding from an area that I should not be bleeding from anymore. I even tried to convince my DH that maybe I am a medical marvel and spontaneously grew a new uterus. Lame, I know.

Well, I am going tomorrow (technically today I guess since my appintment is in less than 12 hours) I am sure that all will be fine, but I am really sick and tired of being poked and proded.

I think it is quite natural your not wanting to deal with this any more. I too feel many times I just don't want to deal with repetative doctor appointments, having invasive stuff done, etc. I don't know anyone who would want more of the same.

But on the other hand you are doing the correct thing by having your situation chrcked out. So try to think of the peace fo mind you will have after having it "officially checked out". Then you won't be wondering what if? What is it? Hopefully you will get answers and/or a good course of action.

Wishing you peace of mind, and strength and support for you to continue doing what you need to do to remain healthy. Sincerely, Judy

(((Amy))) [color=-blue]Cancerhead[/color] can make a person near-crazy. No one wants to face potentially bad news. You are a strong woman, Amy, and you can face this. You have to. No one wants to go through a bunch of tests and biopsies (trust me--I've done them all summer and would have preferred not to). But it's so important that you find out what's going on. You need to know why you're bleeding. Just by merit of the fact that you are bleeding, you can say that something is not normal. Now, that doesn't mean that there's anything seriously wrong--it could be something that's very easily remedied--but you won't know until all the tests are done. And if you don't have it done, then the bleeding will continue to cause you stress. And that will keep you from leading a healthy, happy life because you'll always be wondering why you're bleeding.

I will keep you in my thoughts and 'ers today. May they find the problem quickly and may it be easily dealt with! Keep us posted!

Hi, Amy. I just want to second everything that Jeanine has said. Don't let fear keep you from doing what needs to be done. It isn't easy but we are here for you.

God bless. Let us know how you're doing.
