A little clarification is in order. I really don't think I am being negative. I'm being realistic and scared. The technicians saw "something" that warranted further study. They are tech's not radiologists so they can't diagnose. I am not thinking that I have cancer. I don't have any symptoms of cancer. I certainly haven't had any unexplained weight loss. Cancer would be a surprise for sure. It could happen because cancer can present without anything but fatigue and I do have plenty of that, but I am NOT thinking that.
What I think is that I have avascular necrosis (Google it) in my joints from taking way too many steroids when I had a lot of asthma. That will be bad enough. What unnerves me is how many joints and how many bones are deteriorating and how bad? The tests I had done yesterday will help determine that and also "stage" the deterioration.
Remember I work with doctors and sick people. I have always said that if I ever got cancer or something really ugly I'd just live until I died. I don't believe in the medicine that I help practice. Everything has a price and it's hefty. So now the rubber hits the road. Besides if it was cancer my phone would have already been ringing.
