First post and just wanting to hear if anybody lately has any info that I could use, so many questions dont know where to begin.
Around a year ago and I don't go to the doctor really because have been lucky so far on my 57 years.
My nose kept running really badly with thick mucus and nose bleeds which were quite heavy, saw do tor 5 times and each time put this down to high blood pressure, not even attempting to look or even refer.
3 weeks ago thought I was having a stroke of some sorts and went to my local hospital, was admitted for 4 days, on final day and I had all the tests from MRI, CT, Chest etc I was told that they wanted to do another CT scan and that a Consultant from another hospital wanted to speak to me and have a look.
Had scan and met with the Consultant who looked up my nose and after chatting said really need to do an endoscopy on your left nasel which would be done in day surgery and to look at the histology report
3 days later I have the op, this was on 12th June, another MRI scan a week later, was then told that an appointment for 12th of July to follow up.
Well took a call last Friday saying appointment cancelled for the 12th but could i do Monday. 8th, of course i said because just wanted to get some answers.
Was met by Surgeon who also had a clinical nurse with him, panic started and listened while he explained that i had very rare cancer in my nasel, wish i would have listened a bit more know but too many thoughts.
He explained that i would be going for a PET scan this Thursday or Friday to see if it had spread, he would be then discussing with his team which way to go and would arrange to see me next week.
Anyway feel better writing something down but still annoyed with my own doctor because Surgeon said I have had this for quite a while
