Waiting was torture

They said "We know you have a cancer now. We're going to have a modified mastectomy." But we still wanted to know if the cancer has spread to you liver, or your lungs, and to your bones. So they to do liver scan, bone scan, and x-ray. Everything came out negative, then they will do surgery on me. That's another torture, you wait. One came back. Oh, good, nothing there. Okay, waited for two more to come. So this waiting period is awful. Now what happens if it already spread to the bone? You really say "sayonara" this time. But it came out all negative.
