I just hung up the phone with the doctor and the conversation is as follows:
Doc: “Hello. May I please speak to Michelle.”
Doc: “This is ____from UCSF. We have your results from your biopsy.”
Doc: “The biopsy showed cells highly suspicous for cancer.”
I don’t think I heard what else she really said after that. I finally tuned back in.
Me: “So you are telling me I have
Doc: “Well, given your family history, it appears that it is highly likely.”
Me: “It doesn’t surprise me. I would be shocked if you told me it wasn’t
The doctor proceeded to tell me about what the next step was….surgery and all that good stuff.
I hung up the phone and cried for a short while. I will be fine I keep telling myself over and over again. I will be fine. My sisters were fine and I will be fine. But I have different symptoms than they did. I have lost 20 lbs, I haven’t been sleeping. NO! NO! Stop thinking like that. I will be fine! I will be fine! At least this time I had the support of someone. B was right there with me when the phone rang. Thanks B!
