Thanks for the update, Bev. Things sound good. I've always been told that it's amazing what shows up on scans and how so many of the things turn on to be nothing serious. Somehow, our bodies adapt.

Went in for surgery for a cyst on my bladder, and they found colon cancer growing on the outside of the colon. Got to have two surgeries at the same time! Stage 3, one node involved.
