Yes! During the wait for my biopsy results I thought it DEFINITELY had to be something terrible, it couldn't be anything other than something bad b/c of my symptoms. I was so happy when they called to say that they got a polyp, everything benign.

I don't blame you for stalking old posts, I did the same thing!!

I was encouraged that your story had a good outcome. I'm trying to hold on to these things. There is a group that meets here (I'm in ATL) for OCD on Mondays and I'm going to go tonight. It's in the same building as my old psychiatrist so hopefully I might be able to swing by and get drugs.

Ahhhhh. AHHHHHHHHHHH. *screaming*

Why would you want to kill yourself or shorten your life if you are really sick?

People who are really sick do everything they can to get one more day, one more hour. 

I have a biopsy in two weeks due to the fact I have autoimmune liver disease.  they have told me I have it, basically they are doing a biopsy to see what stage I'm in.  I could react well to the meds or I could need a new liver in 5 years. 

I would do anything, ANYTHING to not have this happening, or to get a full life with my husband. 

***** is never an answer to anything.  Even thinking about it.  I know I what its like to be so scared you are ready to just be over it.  But look at it this way.  If you are really sick, you will get a resolve about things you have never had.

Getting my diagnosis grew me up in a hurry.  I still have issues with anxiety.  But when you really have something, it changes everything.

I don't have the strength to go through illness. Right now, my feeling is if they tell me it is c word or that I have to have a hysterectomy, I may go head and do it.

I don't want to hurt my family. I would miss my girlfriend and my cat and stuff. But at this point, I can't take waiting for a test- so how would I take all this c word sh it???

I don't believe in heaven or hell. Maybe reincarnation? I don't want to go on like this.

I've gone through fears of endometrial and ovarian cancer.  I had neither.  Endometriosis, which I'm still living with (had surgery to remove it but it grew back), and HPV which has since cured itself. 

I'm having a *****-would-be-better day myself; tired of lymphoma.  But hopefully we'll both get through this.  Odds are we aren't sick.  But if we are, we'll figure out how to deal with it, and if we're not, we'll figure out how to deal with THAT.

Yes, please, please contact your psychiatrist for the xanax.  Let them know how you're feeling.   You need treatment.

I think I told you my Mom's story before but if not, here it is again.  For over 2 years past menopause, she had near hemorrhaging every month.  To the point where she had to use adult diapers for the bleeding.  She didn't seek treatment until I forced the issue when she was hospitalized with the flu.  Even with all of that and all that time, the ONLY treatment she needed was a hysterectomy. I would be my life you don't have endometrial or uterine cancer but if you do, the treatment is so simple and you're considered cured.

I guess you will be getting your results today so the suffereing is almost at an end :) I've recently had a biopsy myself, i isisted on it being performed, anyhow i had postoperative bleeding (it was tonsils, so its common) and i went to my ent so that he can take a look and see if anything needed to be done about it. Coincidentally this was exactly a week after they shipped the tissue off for biopsy, anyhow my ent was acting all strange (or at least so i thought at the time) so i said, look be straight with me is it lymphoma ? He laughed, he said if anything suspicious was found i would have called you the very same day that i sent it for examination. Its my guess therefore that all specimens are examined quickly and you only get results later cos the finding needs to be typed up etc, etc. So if after a week there's been no issue i'd say you are good.

Yep, generally speaking specimens get a once over by a tech.  Concerning specimens are prioritized for the pathologist to look at quickly.  So in general if the specimen is concerning you will have results the next day or two.  If you had a biopsy and it's been a week, more often than not the specimen wasn't prioritized due to concern and is usually ok.
