    Confused as hell... After advice on what to do next

    Hi all UPDATE:

    2nd Laparoscopy was done on the 28th December, recovery has been pretty good.

    I got the Cytology report sent to me today in prep for the Dr appt tomorrow. I'm still waiting on a 2nd pathology report.

    Now I am confused as hell.

    Events of the last 4 weeks:
    • Cytology#1 - Positive for Metastatic Adenocarcinoma - revised to Suspicious rather than positive
    • Dx of: Yes you have it but we don't know where or what - we will organise a 2nd laparoscopy to try & find it
    • 2nd procedure completed - removal of what appeared to be a mesenteric fat lump from mesentery fold & abdominal fluid sent to pathology
    • Cytology #2 - No malignant cells seen...
    • Pathology of lump - TBC


    I know my Dr is the best bet for information, I know I can't be given a Dx but I just need advice on what to do now, what tests do I ask for...

    I know I should be jumping for joy that the 2nd one has come back clear but I am petrified that they have missed something or that there is now nothing to do but wait and see... Especially as my gyno/onco has told me yes you have it...

    Saw the GP - all of my results & tests are going to the medical panel. I have also had more bloods and have to do a 24hr urine analysis.

    You will have to trust them on their analysis. Some cancers (not saying you have cancer at all) are diabolically difficult to identify. Mistakes are made in both directions. Since the current findings oppose the former, you may rest assured that extra scrutiny will be given your case. Nerve wracking? Certainly.

    Certainly is, I will be getting more scans done at the end of March to see if anything can be found. Until then, I will just keep plodding along waiting
