My doctor called me today at almost 5pm with my test results. I am not overjoyed that I have to go see a thyroid specialist in Pittsburgh. He said there were not enough cells collected to determine if the nodule is benign or not. 😦 I am so not looking forward to going through another biopsy. My neck is still sore from the one I had last Wednesday.
Of course, it could be weeks until I get in with the specialist, but I won’t know for sure until I call them tomorrow. I don’t know anything about the doctor or even what hospital it is down there. My doctor’s office will be calling me with a name and number tomorrow.
It’s hard not knowing what the future holds for sure with this situation. Most likely the nodule is benign, but the uncertainty is a little unnerving. I did start having some “what if” thoughts today. I don’t like those thoughts and try to avoid them as much as possible. God is in control no matter “What if” may or may not come.
Thank you – again – for your continued prayers!
*January 21 at 1:00 pm is my appointment with the specialist. The doctor (Dr. Yip) I was going to see just had a baby on Sunday, so I will be seeing a Dr. Melck instead. It’s at the Falk Clinic on 5th Ave in Pittsburgh. Definitely GPSing that place and Eric will be taking me to that appt. 🙂
All of my health information will be there today, but I do have to get the actual slides from the pathology dept at the hospital and take them with me. Maybe I won’t have to have another biopsy?? Guess we’ll find out.
