Biopsy Update

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.

  1. Kristin, thanks so much for praying! Right now that's all to do. I'm fine physically (aside from the thyroid issues), just feeling a bit drained emotionally.

    Thank you so much for offering to help out however you can. You are the sweetest! If I do need anything I'll let you know, but for now we'll be ok. 🙂
