Thanks for writing. I have great news. I had an angiogram this week and found out that the mass is really an aneurysm that healed itself within my body. It is not cancer and I do not need surgery. I found a wonderful urologist in Manhasset affiliated with North Shore. Like you asked me to do, he took my x-rays to the vascular surgeon there and they both thought it was an aneurysm and the angiogrram would be the best way to confirm it. He said that he never saw an aneurysm heal itself like that in his entire life, he was stunned and asked me what I did. I told him I was on your program, he wants to talk to you in the worst way. I hope you will go to see him. I have other questions for the doctor, which I hope to have answered at my next appt. in two weeks. I am so relieved. Thanks for all your help and support. I remember you kept saying it did not look like cancer but you still did not know what it was. I am glad I listened to you instead of my doctor and went for this new opinion, otherwise, I would have had major surgery for no reason and possibly bled to death, according to this doctor. I will be in touch and I haven't forgotten to edit your information. What is happening with the wellness center?
