Got my results from my MRI. I have a cyst at the opening of the pancreas NOT cancerous or malignant and a lesion in the center of my pancreas. The Dr. says it has not gotten any worse in the last 6 months so he doesn't want to do anything with it. Just have to go for a follow-up Cat Scan in 6 months. SO NOW WHAT?? I have no idea what to do next. Still not feeling well enough to go back to work but going stir crazy at home. Guess I'm gonna call my reg. Dr. and see what he suggests. Just feel like I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place!! Guess my motto is gonna continue into this year too…If there's a no win situation Ellen's in the middle of it!! :(

I know you are glad to get this MRI behind you and totally understand your concern and frusteration about what to do next. Hopefully, your Dr will give you the answers you so desperately need to know. Take care and keep us posted…

Sorry you are still stuck in limbo. It is a frustrating place to be. Did the Dr. think the cyst would go away on its own? Maybe your reg Dr. will have more answers for you.

Thanks Harlen! Yes I was very stressed and even though I know what it is I'm still stressed because I don't know what to do about it!!?? I'm not sure if different foods will effect the pancreas. Guess I'm gonna have to do some research! Thanks for all your support, don't know what I would have done all this time if it had not been for all of you here on DC!! And I hear congrats are in order?! Good for you that your still not smoking!! I'll be there with you some day!! Hugs right back at ya!! Ellen :)

This is wonderful news. As for boredom, do you feel well enough to volunteer anywhere? I run a food pantry in my church and the I know volunteers are always welcome. Lots of worthy agencies would love help even if it is just stuffing envelopes.

The whole problem is that I NEED to go back to work!! I haven't been out of work long enough to collect any disability or anything and my income ONLY covers my rent!! I have no problem volunteering but I NEVER know when I'm going to have an attack of pancreatitus or have to run to the bathroom or fight with the diabetes!! I just hate to committ to something I may not be able to do! Just spouting I guess…
