Benign!

I figured putting that in the post title would get you the info just a bit quicker.

By sheer luck I found out today that the biopsy came back clear and benign! I had an appt with my rheumatologist and as he was reviewing my chart he noticed I had the biopsy, I mentioned I was waiting for the result, and he said he had the result and would I like to know?
Um, FUCK YES PLEASE.
Sidenote: I’m a little disappointed that the nurse of my oncologist (who is out this week) hasn’t even called me yet! (Which my doc assured me she would do.) Ah well, I don’t care who the source is, I’m just grateful
They weren’t able to access the pancreatic area, so my doc is sending me to a GI specialist to see if an endoscopic ultrasound will do the trick. Hopefully, the fact the the first one is benign, means this one is too.
Which of course, means more waiting. Specialty services for Kaiser will likely call me tomorrow and I’ll have more info soon.

Update on the biopsies

Or should I say biopsy.

The doctor performing the biopsies was worried about accessing the area around the pancreas since it’s around quite a few vital organs. We took a CT-scan of the area and called it a no go.

The upper left breast area was a go, and I should have results mid-next week.

I spoke with my oncologist today and we talked about all the possibilities, but I’m not going to go through that here at this time. I’m trying to stay positive (of course) and not play the “what if” game. We’ll know more when we know more.

At least I have this amazingly snuggly onsie to make me just a little bit happier.cat-lady-yeti.jpgI swear, it is SOOOOO deliciously comfortable. #itsthelittlethings
