Having a real bad day

Postby Nigel555 on October 30th, 2002, 12:29 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm having a real back day, I know this is not to do with BFS but I just feel very down I need some friends around me,

Just got back from Hospital I went in to see if I had a hiatus hernia so I had a camera put down in my stomach and they found I have polyps in my stomach and they have took biopsys to see if they are cancerous, so now I'm worried sick and I won't know the results not for two weeks

I just pray to god my results will turn out all OK

I'm right behind Debbs on this one...keep those positive thoughts going through your head. I hope everything turns out ok when you get your results back. Try to relax in the mean time as much as you can. I know it's easier said than done, but try.

Keep us posted.

Nigel, hang in there buddy. Just remember that MOST nodules, polyps and tumors are NOT cancerous and are benign, OK? Even if it is cancer (god forbid), it seems like you caught it a LOT earlier than most people would have and with today's tecnology with hormone therapy, better, more precise radiation, better treatments with meds and so on, it is on the very high scale of being totally cureable :-) We're with ya man!

Hey Nigel,
Hang in there. I agree with Aaron. If they were polyps, they have caught it early, and....most likely they're benign. Try and not let your imagination run amuk, as we are all such experts at. Let us know the results when you get them.

Nigel--

Try not to let the increase in twitching worry you. I think it happens to all of us that way (I know it happens to me). When we are under stress, the twitching is worse. Good luck with everything...I hope all turns out ok.

Hang in there Nigel! I'll be thinking positive thoughts about you. I had a benign polyp (won't say where :oops: ) removed 11 years ago. I still remember the panic that it sent me into. It took a few months for everything to settle down. I've learned well from that experience that it is unproductive to worry about the unknown. Of course, that's easier said than done!! It all worked out for the best for me. The procedure to remove the polyp fixed another problem that I was unaware of, and within months I became pregnant with my 3rd son. Sometimes good things can happen after the bad. Keep the positive thoughts up, and keep us posted. We're here for you :)
