A Huge Sigh Of Relief!

To both Jess’, and my surprise, we got a phone call around 5pm today.  At first, my heart dropped, because I heard the lady on the phone say she was calling from my doc’s office.  Jess took the call because she is like my manager.  She does the scheduling ,  phone calls, and all the other stuff i would probably just screw up.  She was on the phone for a good ten minutes and I was starting to get nervous.  When she got off the phone, she looked at me and said “They have the results of your MRI.”  She paused, and didn’t say anything for a few seconds.  I was getting real anxious and wanted to throw a shoe at her to get her to speak!  Her next statement was something I will remember forever, and was by far the happiest moment of this year.  It was “The Doc says NO CANCER!”  We were both floored, and just decided to hug and hold each other for a while. 

I feel like I just lost the weight of the world off of my shoulders.  The doc had a whole lot more info and more tests and appointments, but right now I just want a little time to reflect and move forward.  The last couple weeks have probably taken 5 years off my life.  I am looking forward to a stress free couple of days and wonderful weekend!!

Have A Nice Weekend!!

Have A Nice Weekend!!

I had my emergency consult  with doc today.  Most of the appointment was filled with terrible words, and unimaginable choices.  He explained to Jess and I that the mass that was found could be Cancer.  We all decided to further investigate what this could be, because there was a chance that the mass could be some kind of trauma from the PESA procedure I had with the old doc.  He ordered a bunch of blood tests for tumor markers, and a MRI of the pelvis for testicular mass.  He was sure that even with the tests everything would probably come up inconclusive, and that the best thing to do would be to watch it closely.  He didn’t want to jump to conclusions, remove it, and if it’s not Cancer, then we lowered the chances of what I came to him for in the first place (the search for my ever elusive sperm!). 

With no concrete answers, and a lot of information to process, the doc said “Have a nice weekend!”  I think that this weekend will be far from nice.  Probably terrible!!
