Biopsy on Friday to rule out Esophageal Cancer.
« on: August 17, 2014, 09:51:16 AM »
This Friday I have to have a biopsy.  I've had a lot of pain in my left upper abdomen for a while, now - it extends around to my back.  The pain has been bad enough that I can't sleep and can't do what I need to do during the day.

I had a CT scan last week to find out what the issue is, I have 'distal esophageal mural thickening' and a lesion in my right kidney.  The biopsy on my esophagus is Friday at 1:30pm Central Standard Time - USA. 
I found out about the kidney lesion while reading my clinic notes - I sent an email to my doctor asking about it.  It may well just be a cyst as they are common.  If it is, it would be unremarkable.  (And therefore not mentioned) - but I want to make sure that's all it is.

This last year has been incredibly stressful.  So, I'm hoping that this is just scar tissue from being a personality type that tends to hold it firmly together during the urgent need time or emergency then do a crash bang when all is done.  I haven't gotten to the 'all is done' mode, yet - so emotional outlet has been rather sparse.  I've had a few good cries. . .need about two million more . . . But maybe this will work in my favor as far as cancer goes. 

I REALLY want to be well and able to care for my husband right now. 

In His Mercy,
BethAnna

Lord have mercy.

Also, since being positive is supposed to be good when it comes to health matters, I suppose this would be a good time to say something I've long thought: that you are one of my favorite posters here, and I really appreciate the life experiences and openness/honesty you share.

Lord Have Mercy. I called upon desperately the intercessions of St Luke the Surgeon on Saturday night as my mother was having a crisis and I just lost in. I believe he responded quickly, she woke up on Sunday a different person and I bought her home yesterday. Please St Luke continue to intercede for us.

Tomorrow morning I have a sonogram to find out what kind of lesion is on my kidney.  Hopefully it is just a cyst. 

My brother sent me  genetic test results he and his daughter had for a cancer gene.  Both he and my niece carry the gene... so now this is added into the mix.  Evidently our family is being asked to be a part of a research project.  The gene carries thyroid, kidney, colon, breast, and prostate cancer risk.  Which would answer the question of why so many in my family are dealing with the disease in some form.

Lord have mercy, forgive us.
In His Mercy,

I understand. That is when you can say "Thy will be done" with 100% conviction and assurance. And, be at peace, wonderful peace and happiness, that is also good for your physical health. I experienced it 13 years ago, and if you should come up to that point, know that it will be the highlight of your life to date, whether the Lord takes you or decides to keep you. In either case, you and your family (past, present and future) will see each other within a decade or two, or three, eventually for sure. Glory be to God!

May the Lord grant healing to you and all in your family and may this indeed turn out to be nothing remarkable.
Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.

I am home from the hospital. Esophogas is fine, doc didn't see any scar tissue ot thickening or anything.  He said it looked healthy.  He did remove a polyp from my stomach and sent that to pathology, but didn't expect it to return as cancerous.  Thanks be to God!

The sonogram on my kidneys and bladder came out with a simple cyst on my right kidney.  :) Yay.  Glory to God!

The problem with my stomach is 'bile' reflux - similar to acid reflux, but lower and the back up is into the stomach instead of into the esophagus and with bile instead of acid.  I've been on the diet for this for a few days, now and am sleeping on a wedge. . . I've actually had two nights of sleep without acute pain and have resolved most of the pain I was in during the day. 

Thanks be to God!! I'm so thankful!!

LOL. .. but next time I may elect to KEEP my gallbladder.  **laughing**

Thank you all for your prayers!! Thanks be to God for His mercy!
In His Mercy,
BethAnna

Glory to God.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
