Gail,
Thanks for the positive thoughts.  All of my tests were clear for Lupus.  I hadn't even gone in my thoughts to what my symptoms might be, if they weren't because of  Lupus.  Now, I have a brain MRI set for tomorrow and a PET scan set for Friday.  I'm not worried though.  I think I just have a tender nerve in my hip, except my oncologist thought my whole right side was a little weaker.  My tumor was on my right side so it makes sense that my right arm could be weaker.  Anyway, another busy week with work and all.
 
Hi to everyone else too!  Hope you all have a good week.
 
Warmly,
Sadie

Well, I'm in tears friends...the MRI shows a 1.5cm mass that they aren't sure about so I just got off the phone with my onc who tells me she is sorry..I told her to remember I said if she found one more thing I was going to get another doc..well I decided to skip the pET scan and go right to the biopsy. This stinks!

Gail,
 
This does stink!!!!  I can understand skipping the PET and just going for the biopsy.  The PET would probably just be another stress and you don't need any more of that.  If you are like me, you will need those biopsy results to figure out your path or hopefully to show the lump is not cancer.
 
I had a MRI of my head today and I have a PET of my hip on Friday.  I really think I just have a nerve in my hip acting up, but my oncologist thought my right side was weaker.  I have some balance problems too.
 
When do you have your biopsy, if it is okay for me to ask?  I will keep you in my thoughts.
 
Warmly,
Sadie

Hi sadie, I have to have the interview ultra sound wednesday morning and miss the last morning breakfast and fun at school. Boo hoo! Then they scheduled the biopsy for Friday at 10:30 but the ultrasound wil show if its an ultrasound guided biopsy or a CT scan one. More fun..I hope your tests are better than mine dear. Blessings,Gail

Well, They did the CT scan guided biopsy today! It hurt and was not an easy thing to poke at. After 4 times pushed in with the needle he thought he got some samples. I hope. I had aravin in an IV and boy am I wiped out. I fell asleep when I got home and when I woke a few minutes ago I got ready to meet my staff at school; thinking it was morning. Sheesh! LOl

Hi Gail. Sorry to hear it was painful. I think they did four passes on me, too. All I know is that I was holding the nurse's hand so tight, I'm surprised I didn't break it. Glad it's over. Get some good rest. Love, Rena

Hi Gail,
 
I am so glad that challenge is over for you.  I was pleased to hear you didn't head off to work when you woke up.  
 
I have tomorrow off from work tomorrow, but I have an PET scan in the morning and an appointment with my oncologist in the afternoon.  I had a brain MRI on Monday so I'll get the results of everything tomorrow. 
 
I am wishing you a peaceful weekend.  I hope you get to do something nice for yourself, even if it is only to go and sit outside.
 
Warmly,
Sadie

Hi Rena,
 
Thanks so much for the positive thoughts.  I can't wait to finish the PET scan.  I'm feeling pretty positive that they won't find anything.  I probably just have a tender nerve in my hip acting up.  They also want to rule out MS.
 
I hope you have a lovely weekend too.  We are having sun after a long stretch of rain. 
 
Hope you have a really good day!
 
Warmly,
Sadie
