Well, I got the news I was hoping I wouldn't have to hear for a while. It's not bad, it just means I'm not quite in the clear.
Going back to my last entry, I couldn't figureout why I was so nervous before my upper endoscopy. This was a routine followup for a precancerous tumor that was removed in 2008.
As it turns out, the pathology report came back with some precancerous tissue fragments. My doctor had them recheck since he hadn't seen any indication of it. They did recheck, and while still saying that the cells are changing, they do feel it is benign. So, I'll go back in a year for another biopsy. I'm a little concerned that if it does come back precancer, that will mean more surgery, and if so, that it might be something like a Whipple. Not something I'd like to go through, but if I HAVE to, I guess it's best to do it while I'm still reasonably fit and "young" (lol).
