Worried? Um, yea.

Yesterday I spent half my day at the hospital getting on MRI on my foot, big Toe to be exact.

Back in 1992 I had a Tumor removed from my right big toe, it was benign. But a tumor in your toe is very rare. They just don't happen.

They removed most of the bone in my toe, just left a little sliver. They said they did that so it won't grow back.

4 months ago I started having the same exact pain in my right foot again. I finally made an appointment, which I had last week. The doctor took one look at the x-ray and said he didn't like what he saw and I needed to get an MRI to confirm or dis-confirm what he saw. He said it looked like the tumor grew back but he couldn't tell and that it might just be scar tissue.

So yesterday I spent 1 hour and 15 minutes in the MRI machine getting views of my toe and foot. I've had several MRI's in my lifetime and that was the longest by far I've had to be in one.

I just checked messages, it was the MRI department calling wanting to get more views of my foot. The tech that was reading my MRI wants more views to look at.

Could only mean that they see something but need more views to confirm.

I don't really need to under go surgery at this point with the new health issue that I have now that I didn't have then. I had a severe reaction to the anethestic they gave me and I am allergic to antibiotics. Plus I have a minor heart condition (Arrhthmia) that will require me to go off my meds a couple weeks before surgery. Which means the episodes will return.

I am more worried about the surgery and what it will do to my health then I am about having another tumor.

Just when things were starting to look up in my life, I feel like I've been kicked back down into my hole.

{{{HUGS}}} I'm sorry you've got to go through this. I hope it turns out to be scar tissue that's being irritating and nothing worse.

And don't forget -- they could be asking for more pictures to absolutely confirm it's NOT something that matters. I just had one of those and yes, it was quite nervous thinking about what it "might" be, but in the end, all I got was, "Nope, nothing to it, you'll be fine."

Yes, let's hope that they are taking more pictures to confirm it's not something.

*crossing fingers* for you

You have my best wishes Qdub. Despite your college football leanings/misconceptions. I wouldn't wish bad like that on anybody.
