Michaels mom Karen Please please demand that a new pap and mamogram be done at no charge due their mistake. At no charge because insurance will not cover it twice in 1 yr. I skipped 2 mamo's and ended up with stage 1 breast cancer. Lucky to be stage 1 but the surgery was easy the chemo is so hard my bones hurt fo 2 weeks I feel ok for 1 then I go in for another thankful I only have 2 more to go. The big kicker I have NO family history of cancer so skipping 2 I thought was no biggie.
I wish you well let us know how it works out for you. Paula

Good Morning and Happy New Year to all

I got a letter the other day saying my mammogram from Nov 18th was fine. The thing is I didnt have a mammogram I had a pap done that day. I called the number listed on my letter and they said they didnt have my file and gave me another number. I called the other number and they said they didnt have my file either. They told me to call back next week but not before tuesday and they will see if they can find anything out. The pap and mammogram I had done before at another place was all misplaced. My doctor never got those results. I hope everyone doesnt have the same back luck I do.

Another of my friends has just been diagnosed with inoperable terminal cancer. He has 2 tumors on his spine and one in his lung. Hospice has been called in. This is the 2nd friend in 3 months. The 3rd in 6 months. The first 2 are dead and the last one only has a few weeks to live. But....another friend who had a tumor the size of an orange in his lung has not only survived surgery but is doing well. His tumor was encapsulated and no sign of spread, so sometimes there is hope amid the misery.

Hi everyone. Well I saw the Dr yesterday @ the VA. He is thinking that my biopsy does show some "very small cancer cells" as he puts it. So now on the 15th I will go in to have a lumpectomy done. He said that I more than likely will NOT need radiation after that. Yeah right! This same Dr was certain that prior to the biopsy, that it wasn't cancer. I had told him before the biopsy that I would rather have the mass removed instead of a needle biopsy. My reasoning for that was if it comes back possitive for cancer then they will have to open up my breast and take it out anyway. So why go through both procedures? I sometimes think women know their bodies better than the experts!!

I will check back in next week sometime for an update. My pc has crashed and I come to the library only once or twice a week. Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers!!!! I will be in touch.....................Jackie

HuskerMom how are you doing? I have you in my prayers every day. T
Comment by TroubleonFire on September 28, 2009 at 7:30pm
Karen, I will be praying for the young girl, that she will see her kids grow up and meet her grandchildren. I was 26 years old when I found out I have cervical cancer, newly married with a 6 week old baby boy. Diagnosed again in 2002, with breast cancer, partial mastectomy done, 13 months of chemo and 13 weeks of radiation. When diagnosed in 2002, I pretty much gave up because my husband of 20 years walked out on me with a girlfriend at the same time, and left me at home with 3 boys to raise. I AM A SURVIVOR of Cancer too, and being checked now a third time. HuskerMom, I am always here if you need someone to talk to. I will have you in my prayers for tomorrow. Just keep a postive attitude, and I know that is hard to do with being checked for cancer.
But God is watching out for you, he takes care of all of us, We are all survivors.
Please let us know what they say if you find out anything tomorrow, if you feel up to it. God's Blessings and Prayers T
