In Topic: Petrified, Supraclavicular Node Enlargement & Gastric Symptoms... Cancer?

14 June 2015 - 01:43 PM

I'm doing OK, Designer. Suffering right now from a mystery glutening - only the second time I've been glutened since I started. I believe it was CC in some ice cream I ate.

 

But yeah, I got corn back and soy and even blueberries (my favorite.)

 

I hate seeing you consumed by worry. My Mom worried about just about everything and I think seeing that made me learn NOT to be. I wish I could send you some of my ostrich. But maybe some of these quotes will help: http://www.quotegarden.com/worry.html

 

Take one or two a day and dwell on THEM. No matter how far off your appointment is, there are enough to take you there and beyond.

 

In the meantime, pray if you are someone who prays. And I will be praying for you too.  (((((HUGS)))))

PS. I picked one...

"He who fears he shall suffer, already suffers what he fears"

 

Massive thanks and hugs

Bartfull, thanks so much...Yes, I need some Ostrich! I must be like your mum! Although I am generally pretty laid back, except when it comes to a fear of dying... Which has intensified since I had my little boy. Thank you for the link, I will look tonight :-) And I will keep one to carry with me. Thank you so much (weep)...

I am so glad you got corn and soy AND BLUEBERRIES back in!! And sorry you are not too great... Are you feeling better? Massive ((((hugs)))) back to you

When I was in my early 30s I had an enlarged lymph node in my armpit. My doctor thought it might be advanced breast cancer and sent me for an "emergency mammogram." It turned out to be mononucleosis and in a few days I came down with more symptoms. I hope your lymph node is equally benign.

Thankyou RMJ... Thats reasuring a little.... I do hope mine is the same....It is sinister because of my age and because of its location, as you are not supposed to be able to palpate these nodes freely. :-( I know it wasn't there before... Its 1cm ish and hard. Hard apparently isn't good either. Ugh!

Thanks for replying, everyones support means a lot, fingers crossed 

Hugs

Hi and ((((hugs))))!

I'm so sorry that you are having these worries. I understand as I am the type to worry and Google and diagnose myself. Ugh! I do think it's good that the Dr didn't speculate. In my 20's, prior to having an MRI done, my Dr at the time told me that I had either a brain tumor or MS. I was completely devastated...turned out I had neither, but I sure did worry a lot.

Of course you think about your little boy when you are worried. I so get this. I have 3 kids...my youngest is almost 4 and they are the first thing I think of when something is wrong. I just want so much to be there for them.

Has your referral come through yet? Until it does and you see someone, try your best not to Google. Go out and do some fun with your little one instead. Something that brings you both joy. Try to stay busy too. Most of all...take care of yourself.

Please let us know how things go.

Thanks Iceland girl

Everyone on here is so lovely, and of course right with advice. I just want to rule out the sinister reasons for this lump in my collar bone, and it all points to malignancy... Apparently 90 percent of those over 40 with enlarged nodes in collar bone are malignant. It really has petrified me. I feel well apart from hiatus hernia symptoms which I now wonder if are something more sinister.

Anyway, mustn't dwell hey?

Ugh! 

Thank you so much for replying, you are all such lovely people :-) I will stay off Dr Googe today and spend time with my gorgeous boy... Hugs to you

It's true, we often misdiagnose ourselves when we take responsibility for our own health.  In the past 3 years, I thought I had lupus and acromegaly with a small brain tumor.  Thankfully I was wrong, so I sort of understand your stress, to a lesser degree.... It's hard to wait. Not knowing is a scary thing. 

 

If you want to take some benign but potentially helpful action now, you could consider a low carb/sugar diet.  Cancers live on sugar.  If you do not eat sugar or starches, it can't be fed. I so hope you don't have cancer, but a change in diet, even leaning towards a ketogenic diet, could help and it won't hurt if you are fine.  I only mention it because I know I like to take action when I have a health problem (it helps me feel better- more in control), and I think some people feel the same way.

 

Hang in there.  ((hug))

Hi Nvsmom, how you doing?! Oh it's so lovely to talk to guys again (ladies!)... Thanks for replying.

Yeah, I guess I have such awful rouble previously with doctors that I search Dr Google to eliminate any sinister possibilities myself, and actually end up going down the dark alleys. 

Funnily enough, I quit sugar 3 weeks ago! Before any of this. I doubt I could get ketogenic (I'd love to) but I'm vegetarian also (cannot have nuts due to sons anaphylaxis) and I'm lactose intolerant. I have the odd green juice, and my diet is quite clean (lots of salad and veg, eggs, avocados, fruit, matcha green tea, occasional fish)...

But you are right, I am glad I quit the sugar as I did have chocolate and sweeties before.

Its been a ride these 3 years, always something being checked out, major amounts of stress sometimes. I just want to be healthy and happy! And get on with my life! Its hard Nvs, as all I think about is my son, we are very close... 

Thank you so much again, hugs to you, I hope you are doing great :-)
