Good morning! I am asking for honest input,especially if you have firsthand knowledge.I am female,35,complete Hysterectomy,Gallbladder removed,Thyroid removal via radiation 7 years ago.I recently went to DR and am currently to biopsy stage(next week),but would like to know if others have had similar symptoms:approximately 9mos ago-started having episodes (3-4Xper week)of insane itching-arms,legs,back,butt,underarms,sides,etc, which is getting worse,6mos ago started sweating at night on occasion(not DRENCHING sweats usually),8-9 mos ago started mild fevers-100 or less periodically for no reason, 4mos ago started periodic horrible pain in center abdomen area that subsides within 1/2 -hour or so, I am tired and get tiny "blood pinpoints under skin on breasts (which itch,too),my bones hurt-primarily all on left side,soreness under left arm but no evidence of swollen node,found HUGE clusters of swollen nodes in left groin.Dr did bloods test and sed rate-all normal (including WBC)except elevated liver Enzymes(I don't drink),low potassium,and elevated RBC.Went for Ct scan of abdomen down;nodes in left groin swollen-largest measuring over 2 inches and then smaller as they went up into abdomen. No tumors in abdomen, spleen slightly enlarged,and liver had some fat and was "grainy". I generally do not feel good.I have a MASSIVE history of cancer in blood relatives-literally mom,both sets g-parents,aunts,uncles,etc that have either survived or died from cancer.So,be blunt and if you have/have had same similar experiences, please share along with diagnosis.Latest CT scan showed nodes in groin were down;the largest is now just under 2 inches.Radiologist/Dr said the groin nodes were a little strange in the fact that they seemed "stringy and clustered". I also have almost constant swollen nodes to either side of trachea(windpipe), as well as "spells"of feeling great and sudden feeling of nausea.So,lay it bare and be blunt please
I am not a "basket case" and have enough nursing education to know that this is not a death sentence, therefore, as stated previously-be blunt and honest. I am curious if anyone has experienced the same symptoms and the outcome-good or bad. I thank you all in advance!!BTW, if you are wondering with nursing knowledge why I didn't seek help before, it has been a bad year and I attributed each symptom to something explainable; ie. itching=stress, etc. Thanks again!!!
