Vicki here. Came here to pray over you today but confess I have needs of my own.
Asking for prayer regarding this mass on my thyroid. It's not a nodule, or a little lump--it's grown into a mass that now covers nearly my entire left lobe. My endocrinologist has biopsied it before and followed it's progression since late 2005 with ultrasounds. Up until now I've not been too concerned. I still think it's probably benign.
But I'm not sure the Pals know. Donna knows I'm going through tests. But few ever seem to visit or email me other than to ask for prayers, so right now, I'll be honest---I could use some support.
The first biopsy came back nondiagnostic on the 14th. The endocrinologist sent me to a new guy for a repeat biopsy two days ago. Results should be back Mon. or Tues. This is not about being scared as much as it's about feeling a lack of support and understanding. Being a menopausal female experiencing fluctuating emotions doesn't help, but I've run into one thoughtless person after another. Forgiveness is key, always, but how my own family and friends would have to be 'prompted' to care, is beyond me.
