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.
