Bummed out but still ith a passion

A friend just emailed me a note asking how I was doing. My reply (see below) was the first time I wrote everything down:

“10 ER visits and 5 hospital stays between June 28 and August 28. I was doing ok after the surgery but last night in the ER they found 3 cysts on my left ovary. 1 large and 2 smaller ones. The effects, per the doctor, are similar to when a guy gets hit/kicked in the testicles. (Finally, a comparison a man would understand!) So back to bed rest and pain killers for me. I have another appointment on Sept. 10 and we will check the cysts then to see what they are doing. If they have not gotten smaller – probably more surgery.

I also am having a breast ultra sound this Friday. There is a place on the right side that is probably just some lumpy tissue but we are going to check it out.

Finally, when this gets all straighten, I have to have a laser biopsy of a spot on my tongue. “

To my Hyster Sisters – THANK YOU for being there and telling your stories otherwise I would feel so alone in all this.

By the way Hyster Sisters, 2 quick questions to ask yourself:
1. Does your dental provider perform an oral cancer screening each time you have your teeth cleaned?
2. Do you know that you pay for an oral cancer screening each time you have your teeth cleaned?

The Facts regarding Oral Cancer

• One American dies every hour from oral
• In the past three decades there has been an increase of 60% in Tongue/oral cancer in people under 40
• Oral Cancer is detected late: 70% of the time, the cancer is in Stages 3 or 4 when diagnosed

Finally, the Death rate for oral cancer is higher than the death rate of Hodgkin’s disease, cervical, ovarian and brain cancers.

We are all wishing you the very best. You are really hanging in there. Way to go! My dentist does to that screening. He pulls my tongue way out with a gauze pad and looks it over. Take care and be sure to keep us posted.
