Hi everyone:) I'd like to thank all of you for your comments, well wishes and prayers. I had the scope on Thursday and was told that the tumor is benign...THANK GOD! They let me come home on a bland diet and I have many follow up appointments next week. In addition to my friend Chiari, i have acute diverticulitis, ulcerative colitis and the benign mass in my colon. I did not get my MRI's for the Chiari done while I was there. I'm getting them done Wednesday, seeing a surgeon about the mass on Thursday and my primary on Friday. Endocrinologist on Monday and just home sweet home on Tuesday LOL.
While I am so very thankful not to have cancer, I am feeling so very overwhelmed lately. I'm calm and strong while things are going on and then when I'm by myself, I've been feeling very depressed and scared.
It seems like I bumped my head that day on the bus and my life has been in upheaval ever since. I'm having a really hard time accepting and processing all that has happened with my body this past six weeks. First it was the concussion/post concussion syndrome and Chiari diagnosis. Then my trip to the ER-2nd time in two months, for diverticulitis, which I knew I had. I expected to be told it was a flair up and go home on a bland diet. But no, the mass and the fear and waiting for four days was just terrible. It feels like just too much..
My husband isn't really coping well either....I don't know if it's because I look fine and he just wants things to go back to normal or if he's overwhelmed as well.
I just need to keep trying to do what's best for me, to get the care I need so I'll be ok.
I'll be in touch. Thanks so much again to all of you, for listening and letting me get it out, it helps alot.
