Say What???? lol

Pathology Impression

1. The 19 x 18 mm right lower lobe pulmonary nodule is abnormally metabolically active and is malignant until proven otherwise. (hense the lung biopsy later this morning) There is evidence for metastases to the 16 mm right subcarnial lymph node, lower right hilar, upper left hilar lymph nodes.

2. The small pulmonary nodules seen on ct scan as well as the small anterior mediastinum lymph nodes do not demonstrate abnormal metabolic activity.  The T10 sclerotic lesion also does not demonstrate abnormal metabolic activity.

3. Residual apparent post operative changes involving the left breast (new boob)

I found a lot of type o's on this report also on the full summary (Thanks Mary!) they even had my cancer marked for the wrong boob....I wil get to the bottom of this before they do anything more than this lung biopsy today....page one of my pathology report contradicts some things on the second page summary.

I will be having my C/T Cat Scan guided needle biopsy on my right lung(say that 3 times fast! lol) this morning....I have to be at the Hosptal by 9:30 a.m. for an 11:00 a.m test....I will be given a "twilight" drug for the procedure and the test itself should only be about an hour long but I have to stay there for 4 hours after the test is finished to make sure that there hasn't been any bleeding or air entering or leaving the site of the biospy area...I had no problem with the needle biopsy of my breast last summer but the thought of a needle entering my lung makes me wanna say "POP!" enter warped sense of humor giggle here!lol

I should know what we are dealing with exactly by late afternoon Monday...I have a feeling it will surgery first, then some more rounds of chemo and radiation this time...at least that is what my intuition is screaming in my ear for the last couple of days...whatever it is....I'm ready for it!

I won round one, I'll win round 2.....I'm not going anywhere just yet! Reason one, Jim and the kids of course....reason two.....I'm finally getting my body back PLUS new and improved, perkier boobs and I want to show it all off this summer! MY BAD!!!! lol lol lol

Yes Kim, you need to show those perkier boobs off after all you've gone through to get them, lol.  Yea do get your report all cleared up on what is what, sometimes the medical field just blows me away with their reports or how they tell you what is what or going on, would take and Einstein to figure them out some times.  If you have to have some surgery, take a market an circle the area so they get the right boob dear.  Your humor through everything is so wonderful, I love it, keep it up dear....have a good day, you're in my thoughts and prayers....Hugs to you dear...Arlene (AJ)

I understand the report, but then I'm an XRay tech LOL!  When I had some foot surgery way back when I had a twilight drug, and the surgeon said I told dirty jokes through the whole surgery. Ha!  I don't remember a thing, of course.   You're probably in recovery as I write this, so I hope you're not telling jokes! You'll be in my thoughts and prayers today.

Stay on top of that radiology report for boo boos or type o's.

I hope by now you are resting comfortably for the day.

Love ya-

Thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers!  My dad's reports were always loaded (and I mean loaded) with typo's, but to mark the wrong boob?!    I guess they don't proofread them anymore.

Good luck with the procedure, Kim - fingers crossed for a favourable outcome

gandsbrock said...

I hope the procedure went well and you slept through it all.  I have no idea what that medical mumbo jumbo is - I'm sure you'll get to the bottom of it.  *sigh* another long weekend of waiting.  Take care, Stephanie

{{{ Kim }}} Let's not forget reason no. 3 for winning the next round just like you won the last one: the scores of readers who adore, respect and admire you! It's your own fault...if you didn't want to be a role model, you shouldn't have been so damn terrific!

it is scary when those who are taking care of you make typos...but take heart, the ones who type are not the ones who operate
