We have been quiet for a while, lots of emotional adjustment to do. And just when we thought we were getting ‘sorted’ , that gut wrenching request ‘could you come in to get the results of your biopsy – tomorrow’. You just know don’t you? The most recent CT had shown 2 lymph nodes, ultrasound guided biopsy found one – histology found malignant cells. We were told today, efficiently, effectively and honestly. With compassion and understanding (and an offer of tea – that’s when you know its really bad). So – lymph node clearance in the other side as ‘urgent’ – next couple of weeks.
More hospital, more pain and a drainage tube – deep joy!!
And the prognosis? Let’s just say its not good.
