Went to see a lady GP today about my 6cm exophytic kidney cy

12 Jan 2018 17:18

Well I managed to get in to see my lovely lady GP. She couldn't have been more helpful.

She read my results letter and said............It's a big cyst. 6cm Exophytic kidney cyst. She said she will speak to the consultant at the hospital to see if any other tests are needed or if it's a watch and wait.

She examined me again today and I was very tender in that area. She also said that it felt hard around my kidney area. Whatever that means :/

At least she listened and seemed concerned which is more than my own male gp was.

If they listen it's half the battle Happy

Hi Chriss I think my male GP was in a bit of a mood who knows, he normally ok but I guess they are only human at the end of the day lol. I will keep on at them until we get answers. Not sure how big they class cysts before they class as staging. Am guessing they may want scans and a biopsy but im not sure, will just have to wait now. Thank you for your reply xxx

Hi there... you just keep fighting in your corner ... if you don't hear soon give them a ring and ask ... never worry about pestering till you get answer... my cancer was picked up on a chest infection x-ray and the first old male Dr told me it was lung cancer ... bless him, he'd read it wrong .. 

I'm not dissing the oldies, or men Drs, as most are brill ... but there are a few (woman included) who could help more ... but they are under pressure too to do quick appointments ... it happens ... 

Fingers crossed for tests and good results ... always here if you need a shoulder ... Chrissie xx

Thank you so much for your kind words Chriss.

I know exactly what you mean about the GP's. I am normally quite patient unless I know what my body is telling me, then I dig my heels in lol.

I sometimes book a double appointment as it helps get the message across lol.

I hope you are ok now?

Thank you too ... I'm 6 months today post mastectomy... that was my 1st mile stone ... as not having treatment due to weak spine / bones ... so I don't look too far ahead ... but on this 1st milestone , I'm still hanging in there ...and actually doing well ...  

Try not to over worry, if you have biopsy or scans ... but I was so glad my daughter in law was there for biopsy.. she held my hand, and kept me talking and it really helped .. then went for a Costa coffee... 

Be prepared to wait again for results .... everything you do is preceded by "waiting" and that's what does your head in... so keep busy as poss .. and remember there's far more o.k then not ... 

Hope you keep in touch on how it goes ... take care brave lass  ... Chrissie xx
