I am waiting for a PET scan (Monday coming) for a possible re-occurence but after 9 years I am hoping for the best. When I first found out about my lump growing which prompted the further scan, I had constant pain in the area of my abdomen on the left where the lump is.. I mean real pain to the point of real discomfort. I then remembered I had downloaded Headspace on my Kindle which is an app for mindfulness.. 10 minute sessions a day. After the first one, I have had no pain or discomfort.. and even with my anxiety growing as the scan gets nearer, still nothing.
Can the body really 'create pain' from stress..? I don't know but I know it is making me feel better and able to cope..
