Today, I am certain my tumor has it's own personality and is determined to take away mine! lol...I have severe flank pain and have had for 2 weeks. Today is worse. I can't stand the way it feels to lay on my right side it hurts so much. The mattress isn't soft enough. I am a RN but was scorned for being symptomatic. By co-workers and family too. Still am by family. I cannot get treated, as no docs here referred me out and I have no insurance now. Guess they're all waiting for me to die, and I can tell you it is slow and painful. I think the exhaustion and shortness of breath is as bad as the pain. I am scared to return to work which I will soon do, as I do not know how long I can hold out. I just need surgery.....wow...can't beleive this is happening in America......

OOOhhh this sucks! I completely understand how you feel regarding doctors...What is their reasoning as far as not treating you? Because you are a nurse you aren't allowed to have problems? That's horse ****...I know. I went through similar problems, was even told my problems were in my head...want to know why? Because I am female and a nurse. Apparently those with psychogenic disorders have a good base knowledge of medicine and are females. If you want to know my story, see my blog. I just can't understand why they won't refer you to a surgeon to remove that tumor knowing what I know about pheos (I too am a nurse). That just is so irresponsible of your doctors...they have an obligation to help make you well. You must be feeling like ****, I can't even begin to imagine. You should not have to suffer...I will definitely keep you in my thoughts...Sunny
