Just Diagnosed

9 years 9 months ago #35678 by Margellen
I was just diagnosed with BC late Tuesday afternoon and am glad I found this forum. My husband and I are in total shock and very scared. I can't stop shaking. Like some of you, I had misdiagonosed UTIs for a few months, and finally went to a urologist for a variety of tests for kidney stones, overactive bladder, etc. A cystoscope (my last of 4 tests over 6 weeks) revealed a "polyp." I had no blood in my urine. The growth was superficially removed 2 weeks go.

I don't have a lot of information yet except it was an agressive type of tumor. Next week I have all the scans scheduled. It takes 5 days for insurance approval, so the delay. Then I meet with the urologist a few days later for results. We have no intention of continuing with him.

The closest medical center is Penn. Does anyone know Dr. Malkowicz? Other options are Sloan or John Hopkins. Does anyone have suggestions?

How can I stop the shakes?
