Found the issue with my neck

Oct 14, 2016 8:22 AM

Wwll went to see the oral surgen about the results of my neck scan and guess what I have some benign tumors. Not quite sure how to feel yet untill bloods are done but cant stop weeping and phasing out for ages at a time.

Oh no hun. :( it's so hard to wait. Our minds can - and often do - imagine the worse case scenario. How soon before you get the lab work back?

The best thing to do is to find something to take your mind off of the "what ifs". Work on craft things, read a book, whatever you can do to help you relax.

If it were me I would overcome the here to Google it. That can cause extreme anxiety as you read through the possibilities.

As I was going through nursing school one of the first things our instructors told us was to warn us that as we studied each disease etc. to not apply those symptoms to ourselves or loved ones. She told us it was human nature to see ourselves in what we read but if we did that we would soon have ourselves on our death beds. :0. I laughed but found it was true. Not necessarily with school but with me trying to diagnose my symptoms when doctors couldn't.

Just breathe sweetie - whatever the outcome is we are here for you and we truly do care.

Mimikay thanks you right now Im numb. Not sure when the doctor will call me in but hopeing sooner rather than later. Not thinking too much on it focusing on my family as much as possible but my mind shouts benign tumurs over and over

It is scary.. However if you have a tumor(s) benign is the better outcome.

Many people have benign tumors and they have no problems with them.

If your tumors are part of the problem with pain or limited motion I am hoping they are able to remove them to give you relief.

Keep us updated on what you find out. I once saw a Mustang car that had the license plate of H82W8

Thought that would be a perfect tag for many of us. Lol

MysticMum, be strong and when you can't, lean on us. We are here to help you get through this. I found out in May-June 2010 I had a 10 cm mass in my pelvis. I wasn't taken to surgery until late August that year. The waiting was the worst part. It turned out to be benign. Hugs love and prayers this will all be ok and you have the strength & courage to fight through it. 🙂💕🙏🌸
