Medical MRI Shows Tumors & Cysts On Spine

Thread starter #97
Thanks it's a trial. I'm afraid naturally. I made so much noise about the biopsy I'm afraid they're making fun of me a little. I guess most of the guys they treat are tough, I'm not, I think they're barbaric. Also I admit I didn't do any research before the first biopsy and they didn't tell me what it was gonna be like but I feel weird about them now. The same things happened at my dentist where I had a ton of work and I was yelling about nitrous and I finally gave up. I starting crying in the dentist more than once as a result of my trauma reaction and now I'm worse than ever I tear up at the drop of a hat. I have a lot going on with my therapist who I love but I'm on the verge of firing.

These doctors when they stick you and cut you get a look at the real you and I'm hardly bothered to try and "act like a man" these days, oh well. It'd be nice to have a high pain threshold but I don't. This is one occasion I'm lible to start shouting "look all of you I'm a CSA survivor"?

But, i could go on and.on and I usually do. I'm pretty good at getting through things these days, I've had plenty of practice. Thanks again!

Insurance problems the MRI place has no approval and they are talking toe about my doctor I said, "you have questions for my doctor, you call him". She said, "you should call us this afternoon" , I said "you have me scheduled in the morning, you want me to show up, I'd call if I were you".

It was cordial but I'm like "putting this off seems ok with me right now". If I don't hear from them I'll assume they have to reschedule. Problem solved for now .

Had another MRI which i think was the same one that I wrote this about originally, prostate MRI with injection. The guy was a guy lol. No bedside manner whatsoever. Not a caregiver technically. A technician. 12 MRI scans a day.

But during the intake he said "you were diagnosed with prostate cancer in May (i think he said) 2019". I hesitated and said yes.

So I have been on a totally clean diet. Cabbage soup and veggies and fruits and hamburger and chicken breast and corn chips. I stopped losing weight at about 160 lbs. I know I have to eat. I should eat once more daily I am sort of hovering around twice or two meals a day. I snack in between on the good stuff, bananas and apples and raisins and hard cheese are snacks.

But he said it and it is true. I did get a cancer diagnosis, I do have cancer. Im expecting to hear from the urologist today or tomorrow. I expect the doctor or his office to call. If it's the doctor, I suspect he will say he wants to remove my prostate. If its his office i might get another reprieve. I don't really trust them. It can be viewed as a throw away organ and they make money taking them out.

But i don't have to think about it till they call me. I have to go make soup now. : ) I should say i think they follow protocol, I don't actually think they are "ghoulish" but I can't say it didn't occur to me. : (

I saw the urologist today and good news. My PSA is down and my prostate is slightly enlarged but ok. Biopsy later this year, in a couple months, but I get to be asleep this time thank goodness. There was a break in the action because of covid and I wasn't seen for a few months and I didn't pursue them because I put stuff like that off and it was a perfect excuse so, that made me even more nervous.

I changed my eating though and I stopped drinking when I found out. I wouldn't say I completely changed my lifestyle, because I was moderately health conscious. I suppose I'd say I'd been wanting to give up the drinking I'd been doing anyway. I didn't really think about it. I just had an excuse not to, which makes sense if you're me.

So I'm lucky I always was regular about the doctor and it was found out early. That's not how it usually goes. The preventative medicine in prostate cancer had improved dramatically and I got the benefit of it. People are usually unaware they are sick or have a disease until they become symptomatic. I was symptomatic but like I said I never put stuff like that off and my wife always said I'd use any excuse to go to the doctor. True. I like going to the doctor. I have not been feeling like that since all this started, but I feel pretty good right now.
