It's probably a shorter list of what I haven't thought I have had!  :spineyes:

MS, ALS, leukemia, myelodyspalstic syndrome, AIDS, ovarian cancer, pancreatic cancer, colon cancer, anal cancer, Alzheimer's, oral cancer, multiple myeloma, abdominal aneurysm, stomach cancer, kidney cancer, bladder cancer.  I've seen a doctor and been tested for just about every one of those illnesses.  I'm sure there's more that I'm just not thinking of right now.  At the moment I'm quite concerned because calcium deposits were found in my aorta (I'm only 51 and thin!) during yet another ultrasound, although my doctor is not concerned.  I never worried about having a heart attack before, so now I'm fixated on that possibility.

JZK : Dont worry :) You will be fine, your doctor would tell you if it would be possible cause of concern, but since he is not cfoncerned , trust him,and dont worry :)

Thanks for your reassurance, Ineedtosmile (I need to smile too!).  My brother-in-law died in less than a year of AML (he had to tell his primary care physician to order blood tests, and then at first his hematologist told him he had the "good kind" of leukemia!), and now my husband found out he has CLL only because we asked for follow-up blood work (his doctor told him his initial blood work was fine!).  Hard for me to trust doctors totally.  Frankly, if it weren't for my kids, a heart attack would be welcome.

I completely understand that its very hard to trust doctors after that, i believe its so much harder. I hope you cancope with it and beat it :)
