Cancer Journey/ HEALTH

Health Update

Nothing too exciting, just wanted to update you all after writing about my stomach scans at this post.

I had an ultrasound of my stomach and they found no gallstones large enough to show up.  I was scheduled for a stomach scan to rule out metastasis, but I cancelled it.  My stomach pain has gone away, and I did not want to add to our medical bills with another scan.  I have a full set of scans coming up at the end of the year, so as long as I am pain free, I will wait for those.

I still do think it was gallbladder related.  I have been taking steps to flush the gallbladder naturally and I no longer feel any discomfort or pain.

Thanks for caring!  Blessings to you all.

    Just stumbled on your site from More Than Mundane. I came to read about lemon water and ended up reading the journey of a fellow breast cancer warrior. I was diagnosed seven years ago when I was 25. (Stage 2B,ER+ PR- didn’t run in my family, yada yada yada.)I ended up stopping tamoxifen short of five years because I got pregnant with my son. Anyways, thank you for sharing your journey. I’ll be following and praying along. My own battle has made me decide to be way more intentional about my time. I feel like I aged a lot in the year I fought bc. Praying for you & your Hero and little ones…

    God bless and keep you. I wish there was some way on this blog that I could donate to you, because you’ve blessed so many lives. Shoot, you could sell straws, and I’d buy them for a dollar apiece! =) Praying for you, honey.

    Good to be here tonight and catch up on you and your life! My best friend going up was just diagnosed with breast cancer… we were thick as thieves in our younger years. Hadn’t heard from her in a while. Now, we’re linked again…

    I have a round of dr.s visits next week. Yuck, but necessary.

    Glad to know you’re feeling better!

    Yay! Amy, any chance you’d share the gallbladder cleanse? I have to have a abdominal sono and am hoping there are no stones!

    Woot! Glad you posted that “disclaimer” on CaringBridge before we got to this site. I’m sure that was meant for me 🙂 So glad that you’re not in pain! “Pain hurts”, I once wisely pointed out to my daughter. She immediately burst out laughing. “Really? Mom, really?” Yeah, I am that wise. Love you.

    So happy to hear this update. I pray for you continually, Amy. I want all of this to just go away for you. Just being real with my thoughts. I want this to be something that is a distant memory for you. I know God is in complete control and for that I am so thankful!

    My mom is in the middle of her treatments. Cancer sure stinks!!!!
