My Biopsy Is Negative


We got good news this morning from the surgeon who performed the biopsy surgery. My biopsy was negative for lymphoma. They attribute the PET scan results to “reactive” lymph glands which can be the result of an infection.

Possibly the infection came from the virus I had in January. In any event that seems to narrow it to an auto-immune disorder. I still am struggling with the symptoms of numbness in hands and feet, and some loss of activity in legs and some body functions.

I have a follow-up with the Duke hematologist next Tuesday, then my neurologist at the end of April. I appreciate your continuing prayers for whatever the next steps are. During this Easter season an “alleluia” or two is our response to this good news!

  3. I’m so happy for your good news! And now, you’re on another journey to try to discover what is really going on in your body. That’s a journey I’ve been on for 16 months now and I’m so tired of it. Trying not to get discouraged is a true test of my faith. I sincerely pray that you won’t have to wait so long.
