Thank you to everyone who left such kind words, support, prayers and positive thoughts. It's all so appreciated! :-)
We got good news at the doctor that my daughter's tests came back negative for cancer. Whew! Yeah! But, we got the not so good news that she'll have to have surgery to remove the cyst. Because they'll need to keep it intact to check it and see what it is, the incision will be large enough to accommodate it. That means she'll have a longer recovery time of 6-8 weeks. She's not happy about needing surgery. I totally understand. I'm not happy about it either. But, it needs to be done for various reasons.
My daughter is working with her instructors to try and have the surgery at the beginning of May to recover in time for finals and graduation to receive her two associate degrees. The doctor recommended getting it done soon because she doesn't know whether it's a fast or slow growing cyst or if it could be that dreaded "c" word...although the odds are slim on that.
I can't help but wonder if the doctors we went to under our old insurance would have done an ultrasound like I had asked for years ago that it could have been caught much sooner and been easier to treat. Ugh! I'm just happy we found this new doctor and that she has been so thorough. So far, all the research I did to find her has paid off. She has lots of great reviews and people go to her from all over the country. I can see why. We feel like we're in good hands with her. I hope so.
