The wait is agonizing
Hi all. My whole body and brain is so anxious, and I know so many of you understand. I found out 3 weeks ago that I have another recurrence, so this is my third diagnosis. You would think since I've already been through this initial stage twice now I would roll with it better, but it's so so hard to wait without knowing what's coming.
I was diagnosed in 2016 with ++- IDC and had mastectomy/rads/tamox. Small recurrence on my implant in one of the original tumor spots in 2019 and now small recurrence 2024 near my armpit but not a lymph node. I had a pet scan last Friday, and the imaging center said the report would be ready on Monday (yesterday). I contacted my MO office this morning about seeing the report, and I was told to wait for my next in-person appt. That is not for 8 more days because I'm also having an MRI next week, and he wants to wait until that's also done. I know people often wait this long for results, but I'm really struggling :(. Of course I'm assuming the worst. It feels much scarier than waiting for biopsy results. Do you all have to wait for scan results in person too, or have you gotten the reports before your doctor explains them? I can read medical jargon, so I just want my report :(
