PostSubject: More problems?!?   Fri Nov 19, 2010 5:05 am

Went to the doctor this afternoon for a regular medication update and to see what I can do so my flight next week won't be too painful, no problem yet. Two days before the flight I'll up my Diamox one dose and percocet just before I get on the plane.

The doctor mentioned a sore on my ear when she was doing her basic check up and asked about it. It's been coming back in the same place every couple of weeks over the last six months. I didn't think much about it, but she says it's a skin cancer :( and will have to be removed. Because of where it's at it's going to be difficult to neatly remove. So sometime in December or January it will be time for some surgery. Happy New Year to me! :no:

Betsy,

Really sorry to hear this, not like you do not have enough on your plate with having IIH. One positive though is that they have caught it early enough and surgeons are amazing these days with what they can do. Just make sure you get the best. Think of it this way, the Happy New Year, will be a better new you without the irritation of that sore on your ear coming back time and again.

cheer

Thanks Geri.

They have to get a grant for the surgery and then find a doctor who'll accept it, so it may take a little longer than I thought before it gets done. The cancer is slow growing so that's not too bad, it's just the waiting.

Babby, finances have been really tight so I'm waiting for my tax refund. I got my w-2 this week and hopefully my brain will be unfuzzy enough tomorrow to fill out and efile. I'll make my appt Monday as I should have the money in 7-10 days and the appt for biopsy will be in 2-3 weeks, then about a month for the grant to process, find a surgeon, etc. Like all of us I just keep plugging along. :Good Luck

Hi Betsy, I'm sorry to read that you have this going on, but like everyone else has said, it's been caught early which is always good news. So I hope that things are in the process of moving forward with the removal of the lump.

I know they have told you it's cancerous but I suppose until it's removed and sent to the path lab, you wont know to what extent. I hope you don't worry too much about this and keep positive, because I know the word "cancer" alone brings the worst thoughts and fears. You have to keep a positive attitude, and try not to think of the worst case scenario, focus on that they got it early before you had any other symptoms. I speak from recent experience of cancer and surgery, so I know how you feel. hug

Oh Betsy! I'm thinking of you sweetie! I know how overwhelming even a simple tax return can seem when you feel awful, and are stressed out.

I wish I was closer to you, I would try to help, maybe together we would form one full brain!

Like Heidi said, just try to focus on getting it checked out, and cross whatever bridge you need to cross when you come to it.

((HUGS))
