ScanxietyPosted: November 10, 2014
Last Friday, I was at the hospital for my transfusion and ran into my hematologist. She asked me how I was feeling and the dam broke. I told her that I was unhappy with my oncologist and she told me that she would talk to my surgeon about it. I also decided to not wait for anyone to get back to me but schedule my own appointment with my surgeon. So i see her this Wednesday afternoon.
I got a call today that my oncologist was able to get a PET/CT approved. They will be able to tell WTF is going on with my back and see if my cancer has spread.
I’m nervous about the PET/CT, not only because of the machine but because of what they might find. I don’t think they will find anything other than what we know but here’s always that chance. One thing about cancer, any ache and pain that you would’ve previously blown off becomes “OMG has my cancer spread?” I’ve talked with some survivors and they say they are always on edge. Ugh.
No matter how nervous I am, I HAVE to get through his scan. Luckily I have done this before. Remember this?
If if I don’t complete this scan my oncologist’s head will seriously freaking EXPLODE!
Luckily I have a little KINKY BOOTS at the Pantages Theater on Thursday night and birthday doings on Saturday and Sunday to look forward to!!!
FIGHT ON USC! BEAT CAL!
