Oct 18th Update

Friday, October 18, 2013

I probably should wait to blog about what is going on with me, but I will give a quick update here today.
My abdominal scan confirmed that I have two masses around my left ovary. What they thought was a fibroid is now suspect. I have an appointment with the GYN on Monday to discuss a biopsy. Biopsies of this sort require major surgery. I may have Ovarian Cancer. To compound issues, my brain scan shows that my tumor is growing and that we need to discuss surgery for that also. They will not want to do the biopsy while I have the brain tumor. Brain surgery is a very big deal and I would hospitalized for a long time. I would not be able to remember things like how to take care of myself, how to handle money, how to talk and eat.
I am not sure what is going to happen at this point. I will update my blog again when I have more info. I am still not able to eat, so I am not really doing SP anymore. I am really overwhelmed and I need time to process. Thanks for understanding!

    I'm so sorry to hear this! My son at 14 yrs old had 4 brain surgeries within 4 months they had to put a shunt in his head to reroute the fluid so the tumor doesn't grow!! He has an inoperable brain tumor! He has no short term memory. He works, but the job is repetitive so he can remember what to do ! It takes awhile for the short term memory to become long term! He takes anti seizure medication and has MRI's every 6 months. My son is now 32yrs old. Dr.s told us the same he may not be able to walk, talk, feed himself and my son is fine. They also gave him 5 years to live and he has out done that by 13 years! I wish you all the very best. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers! Never give up my son is living proof you can overcome the most serious of things! God Bless You!

Friday Update...

Friday, October 11, 2013

Well, I have had my scans, but I don't have any news yet. I suppose I will hear something next week.
I still am not eating much. When I don't eat, I don't hurt. When I stopped eating, the pain went away. When I tried to eat, the pain came back. It is really frustrating! I can eat things like yogurt, pudding, eggs, toast, but anything else is a problem. I hope that someone figures out what is going on soon!
It has been raining heavily for the last two days! I got soaked going to and from my scan today! When I got home, I changed into dry clothes and got a cup of hot tea to warm me up. I hope the rain lets up soon. I don't want to be running around in the rain again next week!
Next week is another busy week. I have doctor's appointments on Monday and Tuesday,and an appt. at DORS on Wednesday. All this running around is wearing me out!

Pushing through the Pain....

Saturday, October 05, 2013

I realized that our journey here on Spark People is like what I am going through with my health issues. We have to "push through the pain" to get to our goals! The only way that I am going to get better is if I push myself to eat a little more each day! Eventually I will be able to eat healthy again and I will feel stronger!
With SP, we have to do the same thing! We have to push past our fears and "hungers" and move toward feeling healthy and strong! Most of it is mental! Our attitudes and thoughts are what get in our way! A lot of us go through "emotional eating", eating for comfort or to deal with pain. Again, the only way to deal with this is to take "one step at a time, one day at a time! Each step forward brings us closer to our goal! WE CAN DO THIS! We just need to remember what is important and keep focused on the goal!

Each day I am feeling a little better. I can push through the pain!

  I agree 100%. If you don't push thru, the pain gets the better of you. THE PAIN WINS. The pain got the best of my husband. He started to eat and eat. Now I have my own health problems and decided to change the rules of the game. I joined Spark People again. this time I am doing something with what I am learning. Thank you.

Things are not getting better and I still can't eat most things. I can eat pudding, eggs, toast and tea. They don't seem to bother me and they stay down. I am having three MRI's next week, one for the Brain, one for the Abdomen, and one for the Pelvis. Maybe they will be able to figure out where the pain is coming from!
When I am feeling bad, I have little enthusiasm for anything. I know that I need to get back to SP, and I am hoping that the docs will fix me up so I can do that! I hope everyone is well and doing great on their programs!

Update...

Monday, September 30, 2013

I want to apologize to all my Spark Friends for being such a downer lately!
I had a really bad night on Sunday night. I was having chills and then I was too hot. I was having really bad stomach pain with nausea and dizziness! I didn't get much sleep and I felt like I was going to die sitting in the Neuro waiting room for 11/2 hours! I am feeling somewhat better now and I hope that I will sleep better tonight! I have an appointment with my regular doctor tomorrow!

Well.. the neurologist is a new one for me. He started out with the fact that menigiomas are very slow growing and that I would probably die of something else first. (This doc was a real card!)
That was before he looked at the last MRI. He said that my tumor wasn't one that we could just "sit on"! He said that mine is big enough to cause seizures. He ordered another MRI and he referred me to a Neurosurgeon. He said a was a very brave woman to be dealing with all my health issues and that I had a great personality!. That was nice to hear! He also said that he could tell that I was depressed and he ordered me a new pill. I guess we will see what happens with the new MRI.
I have to make the appointment tomorrow.

    I am glad your new doctor was nice and I hope you don't need surgery. I haven't seen you down lately. You seem very happy and peppy, and your blogs have been positive. Maybe inwardly you felt down but your expressions haven't been. Does that make sense? Please keep us posted but, most of all, keep your positive attitude and good spirit. You're doing great!! emoticon

    My mom actually just had a bad seizure yesterday. Yucky news for you, but hopefully the neurosurgeon will be just what your healthy needs!

Prayers for you and your family. Have a great week!
