Re: Post ablation scan - worried
Hi cyars08. I'm afraid all I can offer at this point is the knowledge that you're not alone on your journey. I just had my surgery a week ago and certainly understand your fear. I've been told that everything went smoothly and not to worry. But I know that she found more than she expected to. So, I just can't help but worry a little. I know that telling you not to is pointless. But, if your doctor is anything like mine, she wouldn't keep you waiting if the scan results were cause to be concerned. Nor would she put off further testing for a month if she felt there was truly something there to find. It certainly sounds, from what she said, that she is just covering all the bases by ordering the additional tests. Maybe you could give her a call and let her know how worried you are about the results and also about the rib pain that concerns you. Hopefully she'll let you know that you really do have nothing to worry about and can relax until you see her. I do understand why you're worried and hope someone comes along with the answers you need soon. In the meantime, if talking helps, come on back. I'm at home recovering and have lots of time on my hands. Hang in there. Will keep you in prayer.
