biopsy and thanks

Posted by debbie on 1/20/99 at 00:00 (003671)

To all my friends here, thank you so much for the wonderful words of encouragement. I am actually in tears, it is overwhelming how much people care, and you don't even know me. My biopsy has been rescheduled for tomorrow, Thurs, at 11:00. Scott, I dont' even know if I have cancer yet. I am sorry about your dad. I am not a smoker, never was, no one in my family is. I must say I am a nervous wreck about the biopsy and if it will be painful and now I am even more nervous. And hopefully this is something related to my pneumonia I just got over. I have always been so healthy, except for the pf. someone asked my age. I will be 43 in Feb and am married with two teenagers. Thanks for all of you who are praying for my outcome to be good news. I appreciate it so much. I will let you know what they say. Debbie

I am sorry if I've made you more nervous. I'm just wanting you to communicate with your doctors. Just saying something like 'I've heard this can be very painful - will I need some kind of pain medication?' can cause a doctor to be more concerned about that aspect and thereby more likely to supply pain medication.

This web site has a way of putting things into perspective. Hang in there.
