afraid of PVC's returning


I am feeling a little discouraged today.  I just came from the doctors office and they found another lump in my breast.  I have had problems with benign lumps since I was a teenager and it presented itself again in 2006 in my left breast, well now after a mammorgram I have one in my RIGHT breast..."breathe."  I feel like I am losing it slowly but surely and I don't want my palps to come back like they were at the height of my anxiety.  They have calmed down considerably and I am so thankful for that; but I feel like as soon as I get over one health issue another one arises.  The doctor is fairly confident it's the same type of lump I had over a  year ago but of course there is always that chance.  So my mind is working overtime and  you know where that will lead.....PVC's.  I have to wait until Friday for the results.
Anyway, I just needed to talk about it and what better place than here where there is always so much support.
Please, for those of you who believe in the power of prayer, please pray for me, and all others, I will just ask that you keep me in your thoughts.  I would REALLY appreciate it!

I'm praying for you right now and know just how your feeling.
I just found my uptenth lump since my twenties and at this very moment, am waiting to hear back from the x-ray department about an emergency appointment.
I was treated for ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) in my early twenties, and had a large walnut sized ductal papilloma (benign) removed in my late twenties. Since then, I've had numberous benign lumps along the way, and I know how you feel, it's always so stressful to find a new one. Waiting is the worst...and I know just how hard it is "not" to panic.
Like you, I also feel like it's just one dang thing after another. This month alone I've had; 2 bouts with adult onset Croup, (currently on prednisone), 3 optical migraines, an emergency root canal on the 7th and then to top off last week, my ribs started slipping out of place again (Tietze's Syndrome). Now for this week...to go with my newly found lump (Monday), and my wonderful Croup, my blasted PVC's are rearing their ugly head every morning when I get up and start moving around.
At this point, the only thing keeping me going is my faith.....and knowing that eventually, we WILL get thru this.

Sending prayers your way,

I am SOOOOOOOOOOO grateful for all of your words.  You all really are a great bunch.  Celeste, I am in very impressed by your strength, you have had a lot going on.   I just want to be healthy and feel good you know.  Oh and the waiting is pure torture.  
When I got home I just wanted to love on my children because some things we take for granted and I just refuse to do that anymore.  My daughter asked me wouldn't it be nice if for one hour or one day I wouldn't be sick or have to go to the doctor :-) .....out of the mouths of babes.
I will keep you posted.  Thanks for the hugs!!

Thinking of you two- will pray for both of you tonight.  I have two precious daughters,too, and today was one of those really bad days.  So after school and work,we inflated the air mattress in the den, put on our PJs, cuddled and watched the "AristoCats" movie together.  It's the best medicine in the world.  Wishing all of you peace, strength, love and health.  Until next time,

My prayers are for you!! I had a mamogram "scare" a few years ago---it did end up being benign, but those minutes, hours,days of waiting were pure torture! Focus on the end result---as good news--a very dear friend and nurse told me that so few breast issues actually turn out to be something-that your chances are much better that its NOT anything bad. She made me feel better at a time when that was hard to do. Take care, and know that we are thinking of you!

Oh these post make me feel so much better.  I posted on the "breast cancer" forum and the doctor kind of scared me a bit.  Her answer was not too comforting to say the least, but I guess that's her job.  I am really trying hard not to worry, but it is becoming more and more difficult.  I have always been the type to "borrow" trouble-that's my makeup, but I know it's something I need to change.  My faith is not where it should be.  I am going to end up rambling so I better stop while I am ahead.  I just want to reiterate how glad I am that I found this site months ago.  I honestly don't know what I would do without your support.  Hugs to everyone!
