This thread is meant to be for RANTS and RANTING. Then Rant again. We need a place to simply get rid of the anger. Write it here. Unleash it all. Get it out. This isn't meant for the Stupid comments(great thread). This is for the gut wrenching, tell them off anger.

IMPORTANT: When done ranting don't necessarily stick around. Toxic. Drop the rant and find a better thread.

Only rules: Please, follow them as the Mods will shut it down in a heartbeat( waving Mods)

1. Be careful to not mention docs, nurses, hospitals by name. Defamation and all that tedious legal stuff

2. If it's caused by someone on BCO, just don't mention their name. I think the exception will be if someone is stalking you, blow their anonymity wide open. A stalker doesn't deserve politeness.

3. If you think the rant is about you, let it go, they're no names. Don't take it personal. This is the steam room.

4. If they're is a fight, don't expect the Mods to moderate, it was your choice to come here.

5. After writing a rant, do nothing more, re-read at a future time. Decide if it's important enough for you to cut and paste the rant to whomever caused you the anger. It's a choice. Sometimes it needs to be done, but remember they're can be fall out.

6. ######## pound those keys, SCREAM(caps), J*&R$WSDF&(swear)

7. Religion and politics discussion should go to those topical threads. IF their is something that impacts cancer, it belongs here.

I will revise topic box as needed-sassy

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out shouting "holy crap....what a ride".

runor- while I’m glad the er doc called you with results, I am so sorry you are facing a potential surgery. My quick research of your last post is that yes! 2 CM is way above normal. I too would advise if given the option I would remove the ovaries as well. Especially since you were er*. Hard enough I know but you have given life. In some stupid way you did good. Some women are not so lucky to have experienced that. I understand the loss you will feel though. We are here for you.

I went thru “the change” naturally. Pre cancer and all of it was crazy. I didn’t know if I would bleed to death, have to move to the artic circle, or kill my husband. *distraction*. lol but true story! That’s why they call it the change Your life will change I think that’s why they call it life

Thank you everyone. You do not know what all your words mean to me.  Seriously.

I am so sorry to hear this Runor and I wish you a benign biopsy. I went through my records and saw that my uterus scan showed 1.7cm thickness and the biopsy was negative. This was before I was diagnosed with BC. Another scare was after I was diagnosed with BC when I asked to have my ovaries removed, doctor did the biopsy while I was under anesthesia that came back benign. I regret I didn't ask for a hysterectomy when I had ovaries removed and get over with this problem. I am letting you know about my experience and I am sure many others have similar experiences. Please have the biopsy done but I have learned the thickness of the uterus with heavy bleeding doesn't always mean cancer. I wonderful doctor explained to me how the uterus gets this thick layer when estrogen fluctuates and then starts shedding (bleeding). Big hug and wishing you good news.

Sunshine, I prefer to be called by my correct screenname, but it seems that no matter how clear I try to make my name, I still end up with Bessie rather than Beesie. My icon includes a big picture of a bee..."Bee"sie.

I have nothing against the name Bessie except that I conjure up the image of a cow, and that just doesn't work for me.

Thanks Edj, I am lurking. Clunking. Dragging. Cringing. Wow, I cannot believe the physical manifestations of this anxiety and dread. It has made my feet leaden, my heart race, my face slack, my eyes dull. Every step leaves me breathless and exhausted. Hmm...maybe I should have my ticker checked out? I might have had a stroke and not know it!

I had a phone meeting with the gyno/surgeon and as much as I tried to avoid any kind of biopsy and go straight to hysterectomy she said no. She said that my cancer must be staged. If it is stage 1 she is able to do the hysterectomy. But if it's a stage 2 or higher, then I will need to see a specialist for that surgery. She said it would not be ethical medicine to just yank out my uterus and I said I'm perfectly comfortable with unethical medicine if it will get this thing gone. I am going to be having (much to my horror) and hysteroscopy and D&C which she said will give the most tissue for pathology. No stone will be unturned. This scope and D&C should happen next week and then she'll put a rush on the results and I'll have them in 2 weeks. Two weeks is a rush. Save me. The only good thing in this is that my research into this hysteroscopy says that it is a procedure that many women find horrendously painful. I am not a fan of pain. But since I will be knocked out for the D&C they will do the scope while I am out. I'm good with that. So that's where it stands for now. Thank you Edj and everyone who has been so tolerant of my howling self.

Hi runor, I had to have a D&C with hysteroscopy and it wasn't bad at all. What hurt was when my Gyn tried to do a biopsy in the office and wasn't able to get enough tissue. For about 2-weeks after you won't be able to vacuum or lift anything 10lbs or over. My daughter bought me this from Esty: theferriswheels Abdomen Heat Pad Cramps, PCOS Polycystic ovary syndrome, Hysterectomy Gift after Surgery. I found the weight of it very soothing and used it after my hysterectomy. The D&C will result in a plan or plans of how to proceed. Treatment before or after your hysterectomy and what type of surgery you will need. The unknown is too scary. Thinking of you.

Glad to hear things are moving anyway. Best wishes to you runor for the procedures next week.

I had a visit with my primary yesterday (NP). I thanked her and told her I feel so much better taking the Prozac. She said I looked well. It has been a long, long time since I have heard anyone say that to me. So with all that's happening, don't be afraid to ask for help if need be. I have a mammo next week and my appointment anxiety has kicked in gear but at a much lesser degree than before.

runor - you mentioned being out of breath. I went through that very recently. During that time it seemed like I was having frequent BMs (no diarhea), and very yellow urine. I thought the breathing was from getting more and more out of shape. I mentioned this to the PA at a visit, and she said she noticed my breathing seemed labored and sent me in for an angio-thorax CT. Turns out I had pleural effusion. I was sent to the ER, they removed 1 1/2 liters from the lining around the lungs. No explanation for the frequent BMs or very yellow urine. Fluid has not returned (3 weeks ago), urine looks more normal, but BMs........
