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......
