What is harder knowing something but not knowing what it means or waiting to find out results? My doctors send emails when and if they want to release your results. December 31 I saw the doctor for my thyroid. The first part of January I had the
blood tests he ordered. Over the weekend I got the results of the last two blood tests, vitamin D is low and PTH is high. Put that information together with over the past year my CEA levels have been slowly going up. While at the thyroid doctor he said
to asked my oncologist, from all the thyroid tests I do not have thyroid cancer. After dealing with thyroid issues since I was 17 that much I knew. I probably would not have seen him had it not been for the recent update in Cowden’s Syndrome
screenings. Because of the updated screenings I know today I have two nodules on whats left of my thyroid. So it was a good thing.
Yesterday I had a CT scan for my stage 3C colon cancer diagnoses of late 2008. The scan was better than I remembered it. The prep tasted like water and the scan itself was quick. Since my right colon surgery I have had to adjust to a new kind of
normal with bathroom issues. But I have kept the 45 lbs. off I lost and have not tracked one Weight Watchers point. Every year late March early April I get my colonoscopies. The doctors finds lots of polyps every year. She says I am one of the
Frequent Flyers for colonoscopies. Every scope I get pictures of the polyps removed. At the beginning of every year since 2009 I start to have bathroom issues again. The colonoscopy helps.
My oncologist since 2009 moved. So tomorrow I meet the oncologist that had an appointment in the same office to make my wait really short this time. Yes I looked him up, he has colon cancer listed, has he even heard of Cowdens. I picked my
original oncologist because of location, knowing I would do chemotherapy. I was able to drive myself. Yes I am looking forward to tomorrow.
