Hey... Appointment went well. I'm being connected to an oncology specialist this week and once I meet her the surgery will be in that same week. My gynecologist tried to get me in to see the specialist today bit she was in surgery. So we're gonna have to come back sometime next week.
She explained that my case is complicated by the fact that my tumors are not one solid mass. I have multiple grape like clusters all connected with there own blood sources. So this is why the specialist Is needed. But the gynecologist will be assisting with the surgery. This specialist uses the robot. Which will help them not have to do a big cut.
I have never had such an awesome appointment with any other doctor. She listened and took time with me
She texted thr specialist while we sat in my appointment. And continued to text till she got a response. Only reason I didn't see her today was she had surgery.
And the most unbelievable a d remarkable part of the whole thing. Is this one statement..she looked me in the eye and said " I believe you" .." I know u are not they type to just slack off and u have several medical issues and I will help you." That was when I lost it. I broke down into tears and tried to hold it back but she said it was ok.. I admitted to her I was depressed and didn't want anyone to think I was crazy. She said NO! Your not. Anyone who has this much aganist them is bound to have coping issues. Even now I feel a since of relief and emotions at how loving she is.
Thank you all for you patience and concerns.

Awesome! Maybe this doctor can assist with future doctors that you may need to see. Seems like when you are lucky enough to find quality doctors or even quality people they stick with equally qualified and quality people. Birds of a feather flock together kind of thing. It is a shame that finding quality anything is so damn difficult these days. I am happy for you. Hope this is a new turning point for your future. :)

Just wanted to say that I share your sentiment about when your doctor told you they believed you. I struggled for nearly five years with several doctors telling me that there was nothing wrong with me and it was all in my head or, it was just stress. I kept going until I finally found doctors that would listen to me and could tell I was in pain. When I found out how much I actually have wrong with me I was relieved but, in the same token I was so angry because of the way I was treated by all the past healthcare professionals. I looked at my Dr. and tried to speak but I just wept. My doctor looked at me and said, "it's okay we're going to take care of you". I looked up at him and told him that I honestly started to believe I was going crazy because no one would listen to me. Over and over I said thank you so much for believing me and for helping me... then I sobbed uncontrollably and apologized for my ugly cry. LOL :) I'm very glad that you found a good doctor who you are comfortable with. I have come to realize how few and far between they really are.

Oh wow that is soo good to finally have a doctor who takes you seriously and says they believe you, that in itself is half the battle. For her to say she's going to help you is amazing. Good luck with the next appointment and I hope the surgery gets it all out so you can rest and recover as quickly as possible.
Please if you're able let us know how you get on.
You're in my prayers and sending you {{{BIG GENTLE LOVING HUGS}}} XX

Newfibrogirl I am overjoyed that you were listened to. It's a relief even though it's hard to hear the diagnosis and what has to be done to fix it. Sending positive vibes, good karma and well wishes your way. {{{{Hugs}}}}πŸ’•πŸ˜Š
