Had my CT scan @ MD Anderson today

Postby TXLiz » Sun Apr 16, 2017 7:35 pm

Finished chemo in March...now doing my follow up.

Had bloodwork and CT today- Happy Easter!

Had chest, pelvic, and abdominal CT, with barium and rectal contrast. It was a bit strange but I no longer get embarrassed by medical procedures. I had colon cancer so I was surprised by the rectal contrast...but the nurse said it's standard at their facility.

Tomorrow I see my onc and have my genetic counseling.

I am so hoping for NED. My horrid prognosticators give me a bleak future.

Thanks for reading and good wishes to all here.

Yep, medical procedures can sure strip one of their dignity :oops: Then we realize how unimportant it becomes in the overall scheme of things.
Best wishes for clean scans.

Scan was clean and bloodwork normal.

I feel relief, but so guarded. One day at a time.

Thanks everyone for good thoughts. I'd be so alone without this board.

If you saw a woman sobbing uncontrollably behind a potted plant near Starbucks...that was me.

Jk. I always lock myself in a bathroom stall during my breakdowns...:/
