I have had a lot of heath struggles recently. I was recently diagnosed with grade C esophigitus  and because I can't take PPI meds, they are considering surgery. I find out what the plan is on August 6th.


 Then problem number 2:


Thyroid. I have had a hard time swallowing and sore throat /ear pain that that won't go away. I also have swollen lymph.  So they did a CT scan and found enlarged thyroid, which lead to thyroid ultrasound. That showed solid nodules. One on the left and one on the right and one smack in the middle. The one on the left is showing vascularity and calcification. That has me being sent for biopsy this Friday. From what I have been reading, its not so much a  big deal.


From what I have been reading ....IF it is thyroid cancer, it extremely treatable wth excellent prognosis.  

I have also read that thyroid nodules are VERY COMMON, so truly , I am not worried no matter what they find.



BUT....I am terrified of needles. Weird, cause I am very familiar with them. I was a surgical asst.. BUT on my end...I am not a good patient.. Probably due  to past negative experiences with them. Man I am SO GOOD at starting IV's myself and such, between it comes to me....sorry...but people just suck at it. Sorry. Truth here.


SOOOOOOO....I need so prayer please. Prayer that I can get through the stupid procedure without panic attack, which I have been having many of recently just thinking about Friday.
