It's time to re-up my 16 medications and for the second round of Doctor's visits and tests. To update those who don't know, the tests revealed conflicting data. The bottom line is that I do have the bone lesions all over my body. Now they are monitoring the situation and doing further testing to see if there is any growth. If there is growth in the bone lesions, or a further spread of the bone lesions, then there is cancer and they simply haven't found the source of it yet. I also have appointments with an upper-GI specialist (due to the vomiting of blood) in which they will take biopsies from both the colonoscopy and endoscopy. It turns out that I have a huge ulcer. So I have to seek treatment for that in an ongoing basis. Then a neurologist visit (for the memory loss, slurred speech and to see why I keep passing out).
I also have meetings with the oncologist to:
May 13: Perform a bone scan searching for growth of the bone lesions.
May 16: Radiology: PET-CT WHOLE BODY, again searching for growth or the origin of the bone lesions
May 20: CBC/Diff, CMP to discuss the blood work and findings of the tests that I will have undergone.
June: Follow up with Neurologist.
If you can give anything, I would greatly appreciate it. I really don't like asking for help, but this situation has become too immediate with no warning up front front. If you can give anything I would greatly appreciate it, thank you. If you can share this message so that it may reach others, that too would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, I love you!
