Monday scan

Postby pollo65 » Fri Dec 05, 2014 5:10 pm

I have a scan on Monday due to (kidney) back pain. It just seems to make me more anxious, you would think after 5 years 10 months it would get easier but it just does not. Good luck to everyone scanning this coming week.

I have a PET scan on Tuesday. ...... X rays sinse the last scan show abnormalities in my chest cavity. Looks different than the large colony of mets that have set up shop in my lungs. I have been forewarned not to expect good news.

Surprisingly, I feel no anxiety whatsoever. I have been stage 4 for over 5 years now and have had many of these. If it was totally up to me, I wouldn't even bother. I don't plan on making any effort to slow things down, so what is there to be gained from knowing that cancer has upped the stakes yet again ?

Once again, I dare cancer to hit me with his best shot; FIRE AWAY !!
No matter what, It can only kill me once anyway. I love taunting the little bastard.

All through my cancer journey, I have been the Poster Boy for the things NOT to do if you develope cancer. Right from the start, I decided not to give cancer an inch of recognition, not one inch !
I have carried on with all my unhealthy habits and even added a few more to the mix. This has caused my oncologist a lot more frustration and anxiety for him than for myself. He gets so excited when I don't take him seriously.

I will get the PET scan results on the 16th. The last time I taunted cancer this way, he gave me a new inoperable tumour in my nasal passages without any warning. Even so, I am only a little curious to see what this devil has been up to between scans.
