  • Good grief, 7 times squashed?? You really deserve a relaxing night and a glass of good wine. Try to not drive yourself crazy with speculating until the biopsy results come in, which is much easier said than done.

    You might want to pull up articles on ketogenic diets in cancers for further discussions with the clinic staff. I don't have any links to studies for you, but recall reading some stuff a while back. Paleobird may have some resources for you.

    Hang in there, girl.

    • Will do my research. I crashed about 830 last night. Slept a bit over 8 hours about 1/2 in deep sleep. I'm home from clinic today (no lifting >10 pounds and nothing that could start bleeding again) so working with kiddos who kick probably not a great idea. Not telling family (parents and kids) until I get biopsy results. Woke up mad at myself for not being more forceful when they were opening a door with lots of foot traffic and my breast was on display. I did cover up and tell them why and one of the docs said, "they are all radiologists, not a big deal." Well it is a big deal - its called patient comfort! Also I wanted to critique their bedside manner, but didn't. Maybe I'm in instructor mode because its more comfortable for me? Okay off to look up ketogenic diet and breast cancer scholarly articles only.

      • Lazy day - ice pack and Tylenol plus a nap. Did some ketogenic diet research. Having pork stir fry (2 chops, broccoli, carrots, mushrooms, and bean sprouts) for dinner. Probably a glass of wine. No rice for DH or me.

        • I think you needed that lazy day.

          Enjoy the glass of wine.

              • Well, I'm not a radiologist or a doc of any kind, but violating the patient's privacy in a non-emergent situation is totally unacceptable. Particularly when the patient points it out! This is a HUGE pet peeve of mine, can you tell? Maybe because I have been on both sides, it is important to me to preserve everyone's dignity whenever possible. Also, it was ingrained in me in training, and at the first hospital where I worked.

                But more importantly, I am praying and thinking very hard about positive energy for you. I hope for the news today and that it is good.

                • Thanks Siobhan. I'm trying to let that incident go, but in my mind I'm planning future conversations to avoid the same issues. I just want the diagnosis, so I can move forward. I hate being "on-hold"

                  • Did my faculty evaluation and turned it in. Had a massage (didn't fall asleep) and went and had my hair washed and styled. Got ready to pay and the salon said no and to remember they were praying too - almost lost it right there! Since its past closing time, I'm guessing no news on results until Monday.

                    • Didn't sleep well - feel groggy. Told DS who lives with us - asked him to let me tell the others after I get results and he agreed. Funny thing he thought I was pregnant! I wanted him to know he would have to step it up around the house. DH is going with me to pick up organic veggie boxes - he doesn't want me lifting (even though it said 48 hours, which have passed). Once I see what's in the baskets, I will decide on what's for dinner. I'm going to work ahead on homework on the off chance I need surgery and need to get tax files organized, so I can sit down and do them.

                      • Was going to make Thai napa cabbage rolls, but I'm the only one home for dinner. Had leftovers instead. Will make cabbage rolls tomorrow with DH. Got lots of yummy organic veggies in the box. Planning some different meals next week. I'm going to go take a bubble bath and relax - I think the stress is getting to me. I napped today and did very little. Tomorrow I must pay bills and do some homework. I'm distracted, not able to concentrate, sluggish, and tired. I'm chalking it up to worry and stress. I need to let it go, but am not sure that will happen until I get results. It's the unknown that nags at me. Once I have a plan I feel in control and can move forward.

                        • Slept better, but didn't get 8 hours in. May go back to sleep in a bit. Actually feel hungry this morning - rare for me. Will work at chipping away at the to do list. Pouring rain here. Weight down 1.6 lbs since I weighed 5 days ago. Trying to stick to clean eating and more ketogenic. I'm only .2 over my primal low. Working on dropping into the 150s.

                          • Got the bills paid and some homework done. Worked a bit on taxes. . DS and I made the Thai napa cabbage rolls together. We had fun and they were good. Tomorrow it coconut lemongrass chicken from Nom Nom Paleo. I got lemongrass in my veggie box, as well as the cabbage. The box makes me think out of our usual dinner rut.

                            • Nice work on the dropping weight. Sounds like you had a decently relaxing weekend, which you needed. Taxes, ugh, yes, have to get going on that soon.

                              Sending positive thoughts for biopsy results tomorrow.
