PELVIC CAT SCAN SHOWS A MASS.....

Well after a very hopeful weekend with all my test results that far coming out fine, I felt a lot of tension lift from me. Unfortunatly on monday morning my daughter called to tell me that my doctor needed to talk with me. So I borrowed the cordless phone out of the office and called him. He really wanted to tell me this in person but I would not hang up until he told me what the cat scan found. He said there is a pronounced mass in the area of my colon, bladder and part of my intestiness. I was in such shock my conversation went into confused shock. He asked me where I was and I said work. He told me to take an Ativan for my nerves to calm down. No use I didn't bring the right purse. He insisted that I see him as soon as possible which is today at 1:30. The whole way home from work all I could think of is that my obgyn had me cut wide open how could he miss this? Was this a result of my surgery? What is it?
To top it all off my step mother's sister is a nurse at another near by hospital and she told me that sometimes the doctors and nurses don't count the gauze/ packing correctly and leave it behind. I am so sick with worry again I can't eat or sleep. I'm acting very recluse and am now feeling doomed!
Won't somebody please give me some insight into whats going on?
I'm telling my doctor I want to know now not a week or even a month from now.
He has spoken with my obgyn but thus far I havn't heard from him.
I'm Praying REAL HARD!

{{Sherrie}} Gotta love that name I had a mass show up on a CT Scan 11 weels postop from Hyst. I had a Lap surgery 6 days later. Mine was Scar Tissue that had wrapped around my right ovary. There is another Sister Berta who had the same thing show up 6 months postop and hers was Scar Tissue also. Mine wasnt there pre hyst and it was a result of the Hyst. During that surgery they removed my right ovary through a 1 inch incision. You will be in our thoughts and prayers. Please let us know what the Doc says.

I know how you must feel Sherrie. Please hang in there - we are sending all our positive thoughts and prayers your way. Hopefully the waiting for you will be over soon. Things don't always turn out how we expect do they? I went in for suspected endo and was so relieved to find that my ovary was stuck to my cuff and I had adhesions that they zapped off - that was 3 days ago and I do feel a lot better already. Stress in these situations is enormous but that's what we are here for to help you through.
