She scared me and she also sent me to have blood work done to check for cancer......then she sent me for a cat scan with contrast.......that means they put an IV in with a huge needle and put dye in....when I went in before I gave them the paper I noticed that the doctor had written on it for them to check on a mass in my pelvis........I would like for all of yall........who I consider friends and family (especially since I don't have any close by) to keep me in your thoughts and if you are a praying person please keep me in your prayers that everything will come out okay......thank you so much.......I didn't mean to get off the subject but it did all start with the cysts.........
We'll all be praying for ya, so don't you worry. It's just a precautionary measure to have all the tests done, that way you can dismiss as cancer if you don't have it,, and then work on just getting rid of the cyst. All the women in my family have had cyst on their ovaries and they haven't turned into cancer, the dr.s were more worried about endometrioses.
