Quick Update

Happy Tuesday ladies. I received a call from my thoracic surgeon yesterday and want to share it with you. It’s always unnerving to answer your phone and hear your doctor’s voice on the other end. The last time that happened I got some very frightening news.

Last week, I masked and gloved up to go to the hospital for a contrast MRI of my chest, so I was expecting the call. There were signs out front announcing that no visitors were allowed in the hospital. It makes me so sad to think of sick patients who can’t see their loved ones!no visitor sign in front of a hospital

Orange cones blocked the entrance and funneled me to a podium near the door. A masked and gloved guard asked my name and why I was there. After he checked his list, I was approved to walk 10 feet further into the building where three masked nurses rechecked that I was scheduled for an appointment. This was seriously spooky.jennifer connolly of a well styled life wearing face mask

Long story short, I do not have a tumor between my lungs! The surgeon called it a fatty cyst. I have never felt so lucky to have something fatty and wept on the phone. I don’t need a followup and she doesn’t want to see me again. How lovely!!

I’m beyond appreciative of your thoughts and prayers which I know are helpful. I’m not totally out of the woods because my insurance company has denied approval for the breast MRI the doctors need me to have. My doctor is referring me to a breast specialist to see if a request from them will help. I will be so glad when this is all over.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You’ll never know how much your support, love, and prayers mean to me.

xx

    So pleased for your good news. It is so scary waiting for news like that. Also going into the hospital getting checked is very daunting but also good they are keeping everyone safe.

    I go to the hospital every week for chemotherapy and they have devised a plan for cancer patients not to go through with general public, we have to go to the basement level 1 and meet a nurse who checks us in and a few health checks and then we get escorted to chemo ward in a staff lift. They have also split the staff and patients into 2 separate wards so if one staff member in the team goes down there will still be a second team able to administer our treatment.

    I am feeling very grateful to be kept as safe as possible and also grateful you are clear, such great news.

    Hooray on the fatty cyst! Was praying for you. So happy for you! Hope you get the testing you need.
    As a Canadian health care worker, I caution your readers on having any misconceptions about our “free” and wonderful health care. Its certainly not free; 40% of our taxes goes towards health care. You won’t go bankrupt getting health care here however you could become an opiod addict waiting 12 to 18 months for your “rationed” knee or hip replacement. You could deteriorate, or die, waiting 6 to 12 months just to see a specialist, then another 6 months to get a CT or MRI. Its a slow and inefficient system. If you have a heart attack, you will get quick care….. But something non life threatening? Be prepared to “wait your turn” 6 to 12 months. Just keeping it real. No utopia here folks.

      Hi Jennifer. Your story about the Canadian health system can pretty much be echoed by any country with supposed ‘free health care’ and should be a warning to Americans believing politicians who tout ‘free health care for all’. Nothing is free. Luckily in Australia we have 2 systems private and public. Everyone has free public hospital care but you can also pay for private health care as well which bypasses waiting lists for elective surgeries. It is also easy to get any sort of imaging, MRIs etc if you want it. Those on low incomes (or aged pensioners) pay nothing, whilst the rest of us pay a contribution. My sister (an American) was gobsmacked when she went to my local GP in Oz, asked for a referral for an MRI of her leg, was given one and the next day shehad the MRI- total cost $180 (Aust) I pay $350 for my Breast MRIs (usually with a 2 day wait). Whilst I wouldn’t want to be a public hospital waiting list for elective surgery, I really cannot fault Australia’s system.

    On a grey day in PDX, you sent a ray of sunshine. Such joyous news, and how glad I am for you.
    Don’t start me on the subject of ins. companies. They make insane profits and yet make it difficult to get necessary, potentially lifesaving test.
    I read the comment from Canada , and their system. I have some experience with it, since all my remaining close family lives there. I agree with her that it isn’t perfect, but it is sure better than what we have. We need better here, and fast.
    Keep on smiling……know you have a huge cheering section.
    Best wishes;

    So happy for the good news about the cyst, and now on to the next fight! I’m always saddened by thoughts of those people who don’t have a support system or can’t advocate for themselves when it comes to insurance company issues. Especially if someone is so very sick that they just cannot deal with all the hoops insurance companies make us jump through.
    Stay strong and be well. You’re in my thoughts. <3

        When I went through this with my insurance company, I was told to get an ultrasound of my breasts and then they would probably approve the MRI. Your doctor needs to be very specific and write all the reasons you need it. I changed doctors because my GYN wouldn’t do any of it. I’m so happy to hear that you are ok. I was so happy to hear the great news. I love your blog and hope that soon all this is over for you. ❤️

    So glad you received good news. I am sure the doctor’s office will file a review to be approved for the other test. (My daughter’s insurance company refused her treatment for cancer 2 years ago, and the doctor’s office filed for a review, and it was approved.) My brother, a physician says this happens all the time – his office often has to file reviews to get approvals. He said that the first “approvals” are done by non-physicians, and the reviews are done by a panel of doctors. Crazy, right?!

    Fabulous news! I have received those phone calls and when the name comes up, the heart stops beating for a second. I have had breast ultra sounds but not an MRI.

    Good news about your ‘fatty cyst’, not so much the MRI though. Can’t see how your insurance company would deny the breast MRI if the Specialist orders one, as they are the gold standard for screening. Can you pay for it yourself? I have to pay for mine as I am over 50 as there is no subsidy either from the Government or any rebate from my private insurance.

    • Jennifer

      April 21, 2020 / 6:45 am

      I may have to pay for mine too. They’ve got me rattled about it and with my mother’s history of breast cancer, it’s not something to ignore. Be well xx
