Re: Dealing With Some Issues

Hi, Sherry! Sorry you are going through this. My GYN and ONC both retired last year. I haven't met yet with my new ONC.....August. I just went to my GP because my hips hurt really bad. He diagnosed it as bursitis, which I was hoping was the case. Still, any pain does cause us to be more aware. I have no trouble whatsoever going to the doctor. If I have any issues, I know that the sooner I go, the better! That's how I look at it.
I think docs are extra cautious after a cancer/treatment. They don't want to miss anything. I've had numerous EKGs and ECHOs. Try hard not to worry. It won't help!
I just passed my 8 year diagnosis anniversary, and pain, tests, still give me cause for concern, but I try not to dwell on it. Staying busy is what helps most.
