So What do We do Now?

For a while I have been attempting to shorten my list of doctors.My

doctors are educated nice people, but over a years time I see way to many

doctors. Part of this comes from three emergency visits and two hospital admits last year.

October of 2015 I saw the breast specialist had my mammogram, she

found something so I had the ultra sound. Ended up getting cream for the

nipple and a follow up in three weeks. Then ended up with a nipple biopsy.

Everything turned out ok, but its getting old. The breast specialist handed

me a paper to get an evaluation with a gyn oncologist. My appointment with him was yesterday.

Yesterday’s appointment turned out better than I thought.

The physicians assistant asked lots of questions. She said yes I was in the right place.

When the doctor came in he talked, about Cowdens and my risk to get a third cancer diagnosis.

He talked about options and how I can prevent a third cancer diagnosis. Then he asked for my questions.

 Dave was out in the waiting room so I asked if he could come in and have the doctor repeat Everything.

So in Dave comes and I get another chance to listen.

I could have my uterus removed and  be done with everything unless they found cancer.

I could have yearly screenings, or we could do nothing.

In my case I have been told many times no more surgery. So that one is out.

Ok so what if someday they find cancer. I have a 28% risk. The doctors talked about options other than surgery.

First time I went to the Gyn doctor and got to keep my clothes on.

I left knowing its up to me.

  1. I do not know what is right for you. But I ended up getting a hysterectomy, and a double mastectomy. I also had to get my thyroid removed for the third time. Talk about crazy. Anyways, I had cancer in both breasts and my ovaries were pre-cancerous. I am well now. I made it! I am 54.
