Getting a CBC in a few hours and I am a complete wreck!
« on: January 03, 2014, 08:36:15 PM »
Could somebody please offer me some assurance and hope during this time? :(

Basically, I've been concerned about weight loss and now some mild fatigue and low grade fever that comes and go (it's been almost a week already).

Now I have decided to go to the doctor and I am sure she will order a blood test to rule anything out (if not, I will have the blood test requested!).

I am just so scared that the results will come back with numbers that are way off the scale! Something that will warrant further testing because of the big C!

It's my first time to have a CBC in 2 years and I am really scared! :(

I'm sure you will be fine.

I was the same about a week ago, doctor ordered a cbc and I was so scared my bloodwork would show something! Well the nurse had called me last week and I asked about the results and she said the doctor would talk to me when I go in the following week because my wbc was slighltly elevated. I spent those waiting days in a panic and was so scared.

When I seen the doctor this Thursday in person she said it was barely elevated and not to worry since the differentials were fine.

I basically went to the worst possible scenario and worked myself up because I knew in my heart I had cancer. So even though our HA mind likes to tell us something is wrong. 99.9% of the time it is wrong and we don't have deadly diseases. Be strong and you will be fine.

Thank you everyone for the positive thoughts. You are all helping me get through this difficult time!

Amy, i hope yours will be ok too!

Results will be receiced within the day.

Should I look at my results once I receive it or should I go straight to my doctor who is waiting for me? I feel that i am gonna overanalyze the results once I have it!!!

So scared still..

I've been through this many times - every time I worry. But every time it has been fine. When I first started getting panic attacks I was so sure there would be an issue but it was fine. Hang in there - look forward to hearing your results as I'm sure you'll be fine as well! :)

Wow guys results are back and I cannot believe that every item on it was normal!!! The doctor was impressed!

She gave me a looong session on managing my anxiety and it was really great. I love her!

Thank you all so much for your thoughts!

Does this mean I can put to rest my lymphoma and leukemia fears for now?
