Bad News & Good News... - Happy's Obsession

Bad News & Good News...
First, the Bad News:

The pathology results came back - positive for cancer.

Then, the Good News:

It was small, localized, and removed with clear margins through surgery.

It's been an up and down (or down & up) kind of day.

Crikey! You scared the bejesus out of me!
So what type of follow care do they do in a case like this?

I don't know what to say that would be at all comforting, so just.. *hugs*

I know how tough that situation can be . . . for some encouragment, my mother was in the same position a while ago. Now 5 years later she is still healthy as a horse, and they have told her she has less chances of a reoccurance than an average person has of getting it a first time.

Just wanted to echo this. Same thing with my mom, two years ago. She's all cleared and healthy. Same thing you have to look forward too ::hugs::

*massive amounts of hugs* It'll be okay.

I'm relieved to hear they were able to remove it.

In the last year, both my parents have had cancer surgery (breast for mos-mom, colon for mos-dad). In both cases the cancer was detected rather early, and we're grateful for that.

*hugs you again*

I glad there was good news to counter the bad! Will there be follow-up to the surgery or are you finished?

I'm so glad they caught it and removed it all. *more hugs*

Oh, good. Excellent. So sounds like nothing too bad now...?

*empathetic hug* Sounds the same as my pathology report (done by a doctor with this name *smiles at the irony since I was doing my QaF faerie-rhymes on LJ at the time*) . I assume you'll go through the same next steps as I did but hopefully it will be a surreal/funny experience looking back on it. You can read my post about what happened to me if you can put up with my twisted sense of personal humor ;).

I'm glad to hear that it was removable. Everything will be alright.

Oy, hopefully everything will get better from here on out....how's your voice doing lately? Getting any better/stronger?

1. Good that it was identified/found
2. Good that you were brave and had the surgery
3. Good that they did a good job in surgery
4. Good for you, learning a new technical skill

I don't comment often, but I red that and...
I hope, and I see, it's not too bad...they'll remove it...

The good news far outweights the bad. You're gonna be fine. Believe it.

twistinside82 From: twistinside82 Date: August 12th, 2005 06:18 am (UTC) (Link)
So it's all gone? Are you done now, or is there follow-up of some kind? I'm glad that everything has gone well so far, and that they were able to catch it and remove it. *hugs*
chiquis5784 From: chiquis5784 Date: August 12th, 2005 06:26 am (UTC) (Link)
That's scary, but i'm relieved to hear that it's been removed. *big hugs*
darksylvia From: darksylvia Date: August 12th, 2005 07:09 am (UTC) (Link)
Feeling like you dodged a bullet? I mean, obviously it sucks that it was cancerous, but YAY for it being out!

I'm glad to hear the good news - and you must focus all your positive energy on that. I know (1st hand) how that kind of bad news can feel; so I also know it's easier said than done to get positive about recovery. Take care of you -
_alicesprings From: _alicesprings Date: August 12th, 2005 09:01 am (UTC) (Link)
Take care. Thinking good thoughts for you :) Stay positive, you have good reason to be.

Mixed news but the good is better than the bad. I'm so happy to hear that they got it all.

Oh, sweetie.

First of all, I can't believe you have the presence of mind to figure out colour-masking (or whatever you call it) while processing (or whatever you call it).

Second of all, aaaaaaaaaaaaauuuuuuuuuuuugggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Third of all, *meow*. What the hell can you say? I don't know if it's relief that it's out, or just more shock.

Fourth of all, *fiercely sending ferociously concerned and protective fierceness down the line*. It's a superpower; what can I say? I'd rather I could teletransport flowers and chicken soup, but I wasn't consulted in the matter.
littlemisstexas From: littlemisstexas Date: August 12th, 2005 03:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm very, very glad to hear they were able to remove it all sweetie *huge hugs* You'll be in my heart and thoughts, continue to focus on the positive. *huge hugs again*
