It's cancer.

Posted by JadeAngel , 13 February 2015 · 86 views

What a day. Everyone is posting about it being friday the 13th. Yeah. So... a year ago today I had my first miscarriage (I had 2 in 2014). So, why not pile more on? My oncologist called this morning with the pathology results. I have cancer. I am having a 2nd surgery on monday to remove the rest of my thyroid, then a round of RAI (whenever that will be)....


Don't know how to feel

They came back suspicious for cancer. I am consulting with an oncological surgeon the day after tomorrow. My thoughts are all over the place. I want to say I'm not concerned about the cancer, but when I think about the high chance of reoccurence even decades later, and the other health implimentations this surgery may bring about down the line... well it...


Facing the prospect of cancer for the 2nd time this year

Posted by JadeAngel , 19 December 2014 · 55 views

They found nodules on my thyroid and a lung during the CT scan to figure out what's wrong with me. The one on my lung seems not to worry them because of the size, my age, and that I've never smoked. They sent me in for an ultrasound on my thyroid. They found a couple nodules on my right thyroid, one of which could possibly be cancerous because of the size...


So powerless

I really don't want to be home alone today. My daughter is at school, my husband is at work. I hope he gets vto. I'm alone with my thoughts and that's not good right now. I was putting my test results together in one document so my sister in law and her husband can get some opinions from their doctor friends. I was going over the ultrasound from the ER th...


Nothing but dead ends

Posted by JadeAngel , 01 December 2014 · 35 views

I'm sick of being in the dark. No one knows what the hell is wrong with me. 44 days with a continuous low grade fever, and the last few weeks I'm always in pain. The tests are all negative, except a few tests with elevated levels of one thing or another. But those few are very generic and all point to inflammation. As though the pain didn't point to that...


More not knowing

I finally got in to see the specialist yesterday. She can't tell what I have either. She ordered a battery of tests. They took dozens of vials of blood. I checked today, but no results yet. I'm also going in for some ct scans in just over a week. She doesn't think it's an infection. She's leaning towards an autoimmune disorder or cancer. I can't say I'm n...


It's one thing after another

Posted by JadeAngel , 23 November 2014 · 42 views

I feel like i'm going out of my mind. It's just too much. I had a d&c on august 4th. I lost my pregnancy to tumors. It hurt so badly when they told me they couldn't find a baby and that a mass of tumors had filled my uterus. And to add to that, my husband had gotten tired of waiting with me in the er, and went home convinced the problems were all in m...


I lost you... or I never had you :(

Posted by JadeAngel , 30 July 2014 · 81 views

I spent the evening in the ER. You didn't make it, my little one. Or rather, you never were. I don't know what to think. I still can't stop the tears. It was a molar pregnancy, but no matter how many people tell me "it wasn't a real baby", I feel like I lost my child. I'm so lost. I'm so heart broken. I feel like I'm falling apart. I go in for surgery mon...


To my little one

Posted by JadeAngel , 30 July 2014 · 61 views

This week has been very emotionally tasking for me, and at this point there is little else I can do but this. I am barely 9 weeks pregnant with you, but I have an infection and I have been bleeding for several days. While it is not enough for the doctors to push my appointment a few days closer, it is of current concern, and enough to scare me. I'm normal...


I'm pregnant

Posted by JadeAngel , 12 July 2014 · 103 views

I'm pregnant. I found out on june 26th, at exactly 4 weeks. I'm over 6 weeks now. I am so excited and at the same time scared. I have literally lost count of how many friends and family had miscarriages or lost newborn children. So I'm scared and almost feel like it's unreal at this point. I've gotten a few things already because I feel like I'll lose my...
