AngieKaye --- 7 years ago -

I finally got to see a dr!! This time a real one and not the trainees in the er. Saw dr Nathan yesterday they ordered a few tests. Starting with endoscopy on Tuesday. He is thinking ulcers and gall bladder. I hope if he finds problems he will just hospitalize me Tuesday and remove it!!

No meds right now and still starving. Down to 94 and loosing. Heck I haven't even worked or done much in the last two weeks!


Anyway thought I might update y'all. My husband will be with me so hopefully he will understand what all the dr finds :) 

TexasOma (Mod) --- 7 years ago -

Very good... Keep me updated on what he finds. 

Pepper --- 7 years ago -

Angie, I hope you and your doctors are able to get a handle on this.

Let us know if you need anything ... you know how to reach us. 

Froggie --- 7 years ago -

Ditto on what Oma and Pepper said...I'm just right around the corner from you.

= ] 

AngieKaye --- 7 years ago -

thanks ya'll. I am nervous and excited all at once. I so want to know what is happening but scared of what it might be.

I just really hope he finds the issue and can either fix it or medicate it. I really really really really really MISS FOOD!!!! 

AngieKaye --- 7 years ago -

endoscopy done. Not good! I have a large tumor in my stomach which is blocking all food from passing. They did a biopsy and wont know til later this week the results. Dr nathan wants to do surgery sometime next week to get it removed. Then pending biopsy will tell us what is next.

Prayers are welcomed! Not just for me but for my family. Husband is taking this hard. I haven't stopped crying yet. 

Pepper --- 7 years ago -

Wow Angie ... that news had to bring you to your knees.

Am praying for you, young lady. 

AngieKaye --- 7 years ago -

yes it did Pep. I am still in tears and so is my husband. I am more worried about my sons. I just have to think its not cancer and just a bad thing in there.

I just can't figure out how if I had a CT scan done at the hospital they didn't see this! How can they not see a tumor of this size blocking the exit!!

Oh well just have to go from here, already told most of my clients i will be on bed rest for a month or more. Might have to end up totally retiring now. Which isnt going to be easy for me to do at all!! As you know how hyper and active i am! LOL 

AngieKaye --- 7 years ago -

Heck as of right now my truck hasn't left the driveway in 2 weeks :) HOpe I can at least find energy to work round my own home... but dont think the men in the house will let me :) Husband is already threatening to tie me up to keep me still! 

TexasOma (Mod) --- 7 years ago -

Angie --- be positive, don't cry about it. You cannot change or undo what is there, but keep a positive attitude that with God's help it will be good.

I am so glad you finally went to the doctor - A REAL DOCTOR - and they found the problem.

Not all tumors are malignant, so don't even let your mind wander there...it will only cause distress and tears. Positive, keep positive.

What hospital and who is the surgeon?

Prayers are going to be going on until I hear good news from you next week. 

AngieKaye --- 7 years ago -

I am thinking it will be done at NE Memorial, right now my dr is Nathan but think he told me he will contact a surgeon next week. Having blood work for it done tomorrow.

And thanks for the prayers that is all I need right now for sure!! God will get me through I know, just the initial shock has me down. 

AngieKaye --- 7 years ago -

just the worse part, he can't give me anything for pain or nothing right now. Said "It would't do any good" til they remove the cause. 

Pepper --- 7 years ago -

Angie, you were such a "HUGE" help to us when we needed it, so if there is anything ... and I mean anything ... we can do for you, call me, or send me a message.

Gotcha' in my prayers, and like Oma said, stay postive! 

AngieKaye --- 7 years ago -

I will Pep thanks. :) 

Froggie --- 7 years ago -

Ditto on the needing anything....we are close to each other....just give a shout girl!! 

MonzaRacer (Admin) --- 7 years ago -

Prayers for you, Angie... 

AngieKaye --- 7 years ago -

thank ya'll so much. I am sure with the will of faith I will be ok. Just going to be a road I have to travel. Just thankful for all my friends and my great family.

I just feel terrible having to cancel on all my clients until I get better. Thank goodness I have one of the best clientele anyone could ask for!! 

grandma again --- 7 years ago -

Prayers for you, AngieKaye. You can do this. Just do as the doctor says. 

AngieKaye --- 7 years ago -

Just got home from the HIDA scan and ultra scans. Talked to nurse at DR Nathans office, told me all 3 biopsy's are normal and benign!!! My cancer screen was normal actually below normal for a smoker! It was 2.5. So now I am having to take 4 nexium a day for the huge ulcer (didn't remember him telling me about) and Wednesday I go to discuss the surgery and who will be preforming it.

I have been in tears since they told me NO CANCER!!!! Best news of the week!

Thanks for all the prayers... GOD IS GREAT!!! 

rightwingmom --- 7 years ago -

Whoo Hoo! Praise the Lord there's NO CANCER!

Now prayers to get you through the surgery. 

AngieKaye --- 7 years ago -

thank you! i will update soon as I know what type of procedure. I am praying laproscopy or endoscopy. That way they wont have to cut into me too much 

Pepper --- 7 years ago -

That's excellent news, Angie ...

Now try to relax a little (if that's possible) and get a good night sleep. It's a walk in the park from here on ...

I'm sure you've been on pins and needles lately. 

TexasOma (Mod) --- 7 years ago -

I have been in tears since they told me NO CANCER!!!! Best news of the week!

Thanks for all the prayers... GOD IS GREAT!!!




Now you see why I told you to be positive. All that worry was for naught....I am so happy for you and for your husband.

Now, if you are still smoking --- QUIT!!!! If only until the surgery is over. Believe me, it will make the surgery & recover go easier. Then, if you can stay stopped, do so!!!!! Nurse Oma has spoken!!!


Angie - I am so ecstatic right now with your good news. Yes, there is still surgery needed, but NO CANCER!!!! YIPPEE!!!!

God is good!!!! Thanks be to God!!!! 

AngieKaye --- 7 years ago -

thanks! I cried the whole way home after she called me... just so relieved!

Cant wait for Monday to find out the HIDA test on the gall bladder. And for wednesday to plan on when this alien will be out of my body!

Wooohooo on the "No cancer" 

AngieKaye --- 7 years ago -

this past week was a huge roller coaster to say the least. Ended on such a great cord. I have found out just how many friends I have in my life. Always thought I was just a "maid". Today one of my first clients that I have been working for the last 4 1/2 years contacted me. Her and her husband cooked my family dinner so I didn't have to. I never ask people for stuff, because that is my job to provide not accept. So this is something new for me.

I was so honored today. Never felt so much love from friends. Never knew just how much a part of a family you become as you work for someone.

Another client wants to pay me each week while I am off. And one other gave me gift cards to get something nice for the hospital. I tell you I have never cried as much as I have this weekend.


I just needed to thank each and everyone of you for all the thoughts, prayers and love you have showed me. Next week will be another coaster ride, but least this one is a kiddie one :) Scared beyond words about going under the "knife" again. But excited about gettin this taken care of once and for all.

thank you all for believing in me and not doubting me. I love you all very much! 

AngieKaye --- 7 years ago -

Just got back from the dr. So much! TOO much!

First he said in his 30 years he's never seen a tumor of this size and it not be cancer, he is questioning the biopsy results. Second he is going to have NE Memorial reexamine the CT scan to make sure they can't see any mass in or around the stomach.

He did tell me surgery will be our last option. I am way too small and have absolutely no body mass to handle the surgery. They would have to go in and do a bypass or complete removal.

He put me on meds for now. Going to consult with another specialist downtown about doing an ultrasound endoscopy. This way they can see just how much mass the tumor is opposed to just an ulcer.

He also did tell me that me taking excedrins everyday for so long could be the reason this thing is so large but wont know til we see if the meds work on it. If they do then great, meds and i'm ok and back to normal, if they dont well.... dont know.

Thanks again for the prayers, keep em coming looks like I am still not out of the woods yet :( 

MonzaRacer (Admin) --- 7 years ago -

Will keep the prayers going, AK...stay strong 

TexasOma (Mod) --- 7 years ago -

Sounds like he knows what he's talking about. He's sending you to another specialist to get a second opinion

Prayers continuing... 

AngieKaye --- 7 years ago -

Thank you. I just feel like a human yo-yo on a very short string!

Now my insurance doesn't want to cover the pills because it exceeds the normal daily allowed. UGH. Waiting for kroger to get an answer tomorrow.

On to my neurologist soon as I can get in.
