Hi there. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with this, or can give me some support.
I have had some bad pains in my stomach a week or 2 ago,( they came right as soon as I ate dinner and were kind of like gas) went to the Dr. to get them checked out. She wanted me to have a CT Scan, so 2 days ago went for that. Today she called me with the news that is totally unrelated to the stomach pain that they found a 4 cm mass in my mesentary,at the base of the intestine.
Apparently it is very unusual for this to be found in a healthy person of my
age, and she wanted me to go for a CT guided biopsy to see what it is asap.
I am a little freaked, well actually quite a bit, my girls are 2 and 4 , and I was really shocked. My dh was really quiet when I told him, ( he was at work but I had to talk to him ) but when he came home he was calm and we talked about it and he relaxed me a little about it.
On a different note, they also saw a kind of varicose vein in my pelvic area too, but she wanted to address the main issue right now. Has anyone heard of these things before?
I am trying not to be too melodramatic about it, but it was really shocking news. Please keep your fingers crossed that everything works out positively for me and my family.
