Results of Needle Biopsy

Saturday, November 09, 2013

Took most of yesterday afternoon to find out there were no cancerous cells found. They ran the test twice and forwarded them to John Hopkins for another opinion. Bad news they do not know what to do with me. It is a 9 centimeter fibrous mass (which is about 4 inches) and leaves very little room in my left lung. The Dr. showed me the cat scan when they put the needle in the mass. My daughter was with me and she ask if I was growing a baby in that lung. The Dr. said it was remarkable and I don't really know what he means by that, but I am back on oxygen 24/7. This has really slowed my life down. Dr. said they had no idea, but it could have originated from a bacterial infection. I am taking a couple of herbs in hope it will help shrink this mass. He said let's wait and I go back to see him on Dec. 17th.

Your support and prayers have been such a blessing. I thank each and everyone of you, you have made his ordeal bearable.

    What great news that there weren't any cancer cells emoticon I hope that the Dr. has more good news on December 17th and a way to get rid of the mass so that you can breath better. You will remain in my prayers.

    So very happy to hear it wasn't cancerous. My mother-in-law had to have part of her lung removed due to a mass but it wasn't cancerous. Praying you'll get some answers! emoticon

    I am SO glad not to hear the cancer word...that HAS to be good! God knows what to do and I shall continue praying for healing and removal of the mass supernaturally. With NO side effects that cause you to need the Oxygen.

    God Bless you, Pat!

    So very glad and relieved to hear it's not cancer, but so sorry to hear how it is effecting you. I do hope there is a solution to this so that you can get back to a more "normal" life without the need of oxygen.
    Best of everything to you.

    Thank God there was no evidence of cancer. Now I pray that they get whatever it is taken care of or that you give birth real soon and get rid of the mass. I will pray and continue to pray

    It's so awesome to witness God's miracles and the power of prayer. Even though the wonderful test results don't automatically remove the mass and you're having trouble breathing I'm sure they'll find a reasonable, successful course of treatment for you, even if it involves surgery. Maybe in the meantime the homeopathic herbs might help. Will continue to pray for you Pat. God bless you. emoticon emoticon

    Goodness, talk about good news and bad news! What a phenomena, Pat. Great it's not cancerous, but wow, let's hope it shrinks and if not, the doctors will take it out. No good if it's affecting your breathing so much. Stay positive and trust in the herbs for now until 17th December anyway.

    Thinking of you and sending love and light your way as always.

    Maybe Johns Hopkins will have an idea??? IN the meantime, glad it's not cancer anyway! That had to be a sigh of relief. Except still having the severe symptoms, that's NOT a relief.

    HUGS and prayers.
