As some of you know I have been dealing with a bad back and am going through tests to see what is the cause of it, since I was told it is NOT Scoliosis like I was told! Well, here is the first test on me. They do this as a part of a normal exam once a year. I got my pap results and the dr said I have Atypical cells. Now she said that sometimes that is a sign of cancer, but it doesn't mean I have it! I don't think I have cancer, I have been dealing with this for over 5 years and if I had cancer, I would not weigh 153 pounds! lol I have an appointment for my ultra sound on July 1st at 11:30 am. I am trying to get hubby to take off work to go with me. The testing place is in New Orleans and I can't go there by myself. It hurts me to walk a long time now (more than before). My sister said she believes I have endometriosis. She had a hysterectomy and all she had was a cyst on her ovaries, she also had lots of fibroids and they found endometriosis. None of the dr's who examined her ever found that. They found it when they operated. She whole heartedly believes in physics and I do a bit and she has a friend who is a physic and she told my sister I had nothing to worry about it was all benign. So I am sticking with that. I have to, I believe it. Just please remember me and my family in your prayers. I really can't take surprises in medical situations. Thanks ~Icy~

I can sympathise with the back problems icy - the last few days I have not been able to get to the toilet on my own it has been so bad! I do feel that it is very stressful to be told that there is a chance you have cancer and it must be so hard to stay positive but I am sure that you are right and I hope and pray they find the cause soon! I do hope that your husband goes with you as it would be very difficult to go through something like that on your own even if the results are very good, Of course I will keep you in my prayers! xxxx

Thank you Mo, I want him to go with me and he knows if he doesn't I will cancel the date for a later one and that will make me very angry as I want this over with. lol He has to take off tomorrow to move us because the guy who got us the moving truck needs it back before noon tomorrow and well, he is the one helping us move because we have had storms this weekend, so we were limited to what we could do. And I want him to take off on the 1st. lol His boss isn't going to be happy, but if hubby explains it is for test on me, he will understand as he knows I have not been feeling as good as normal. I have been in more pain since the pap. lol

Hello Icy! I will have you and your family in my prayers. I also have back problems. Mine started about 5 years ago and it's hard to walk very far. So, I know a little about what you're going through. I will be anxiously awaiting the results of your test. Please keep in touch and post a follow up reply. Take care!

Icy, did you say moving!?!?!!?? Wow a lot has happened since I have been away (2 weeks in the UK to celebrate mum's 80th). Fantastic, I know you wanted to get out of your 'home' and move to somewhere more 'up market'. I am so pleased for you as you had been having a terrible time with your neighbours. Good luck with the move, honey.

Thank you angel. I have pics of my new home on my blog www.awahmsjournal.com We are all moved in, just unpacking now. lol We were so sore that we hardly touched any boxes last week. We only unpacked food. lol I couldn't bend or stoop to help unpack. I felt so bad! I was told by my dr not to move anything heavy, and I didn't. Hubby understood, and had to do it (heavy boxes) himself and I felt terrible about that. He has bruises all on his arms and my daughter is bruised on her knees and arms. lol They look like someone beat them up! ~Icy~

Sorry your having a hard time now. My prayers for you to have a quick answer, so they can treat it. Its terrible waiting for an answer. I hate medical surprises, as none have ever really made me happy. I sure hope its not cancer. My daughter had skin cancer several years ago. She didn't lose any weight at the time. She had 5 surgeries and goes in for check ups every year. Best wishes always and a big hug.

I sure hope that everything is okay with you and you get to feeling better. I hate it when I don't feel good too. I will say a prayer for you and your family right now before sending this to you. I pray that you will feel better soon and not have these issues. I pray that you have no medical surprises, other than good ones.
