Re: Saw New Endo, Encouraged
Well, I went for my ultra sound yesterday... and the radiologist didn't like what he saw. So they ended up doing a biopsy. They didn't refer to it as a FNA, and gave me discharge papers that were different from when I had my FNA last year. The Dr.'s office called when I was having the procedure and cancled my appoitment due to the fact that they wouldn't have the results back from the biopsy right away. The bad thing is the Dr is out of town next week, sigh!
But, the Radiologist Dr did copy off my labs for me and talk to me about them, what he could make of them, lol. The whole expierence was great, the U of I hospital is a teaching hospital, and I think they really strive to make it the best expierece possible for the patient. Though I was really feeling down when I left as I had been expecting to have answers yesterday, but I guess I have been dealing with this 23 years, whats another week...
