CT scan-all clear!

Postby mymaria » Mon Jun 14, 2010 8:45 am

I had a CT scan Friday morning because I had been having some pain under my ribcage, near where my hemicolectomy was late last year. Just got the results and all is clear!! The benign cysts on my liver and spleen have remained stable since my November CT scan. I was going to wait until 2 pm to call, but coulnd't wait that long!

I am thinking All Clear, is happy dance territory, or at least at one point we had a lot of offers to run naked through stadiums at half-time ????

Your choice...but celebrate, and many happy returns !

Cheers & congratulations !
