I called University of Kansas hospital, urology department today. Thanks for the recommendation! They can see me Tuesday morning with Dr. John Taylor. His qualifications are impressive! My anxiety is sky high though because how am I able to get an appointment with him in such short notice?? Tuesday cannot come soon enough. I feel like I can’t breathe.

I hand delivered my CT report to a urology department and they called back and can get me in next Wednesday. I’m thinking it’s a good thing they didn’t want to see me today or tomorrow? So on Wednesday of next week, I have my urologist appointment, my sonogram, and my gynecologist appointment. I’ll keep you updated!

Ok. I’ll try... I struggle with anxiety so this is really hard for me. But I’ll try :) And I will definitely keep you updated.

Put down the internet and step away. I have seen tiny tumors be high grade and huge ones be benign. You can scare yourself to death for no reason. You have a plan that is what you need right now. Once you know what you are dealing with you can do research that is truly relavent. There is an old saying “Don’t buy trouble and pay interest on it”, it means don’t waste energy worrying about things that may never happen. Right now take care of yourself and keep your mind busy if you can with non health related subjects. Please keep us updated.

Ok thanks! That’s helpful!

It’s been a weird week. Knowing that something major could happen and I’m just waiting for it. The little bit of research I did online (ok, maybe a bit more) seemed to say there was a much higher chance of it being cancer if the mass was more than or equal to 3 cm. I keep on focusing on that. There’s a lot to keep me busy this time of year but this is always in the back of my mind.

If you are in Kansas the University of Kansas Medical Center looks like a good bet if you are in MO Barnes in St Lewis. Talk to your GYN when you see them it is possible they have someone who is good they may suggest. At this point you don’t need a cancer specialist as much as you need a good Urologist to find out what you are dealing with.
