I have this image of you in the ocean swooping around in the water with the sun glistening on the waves and a glorious wind whippinig its way through your hair. I love California.
Yes I have news. It is not good. I just found out a few hours ago. The pathology report says "This lymph node is positive for metastatic adenocarcinoma." But I don't know the full picture until I get more tests. They are still testing my biopsy sample and my doctor referred me to a regional cancer center, the Juravinski. I do not think the wait will be too long.
The strange thing is that for the last few months I had this sinister sensation of being choked, you know if you are really anxious and you feel your throat tense up like you can't catch your breath, kind of gulping for air. I attributed it to anxiety. Now I know it was the actual tumor pressing in that area and/or the cancer may have gotten to my lungs. And other things make sense, like I could not lie on my side in bed (my good non-lymphedema side) because i felt like my pyjamas were bunching up around my collarbone. I kept thinking why do all my nightgowns feel so tight like they are strangling me? Again, it wasn't the nightgowns, it was the lesion on my collarbone.
Not sure about the marijuana situation here, I think it's going to be legal soon in Canada, recreational, medical all of it lol
Hope your lymphedema/soreness feels better!
I posted a poem in the Arts Section of this board. It's pretty far down on the following page
