Scans tomorrow

Postby thubler » Sun Apr 01, 2018 11:05 pm

So tomorrow (I guess today) is my 6 month surveillance scans. I’m usually fine until after. Playing the waiting game is where my scanxiety starts. Last scan I had to wait 4 days for my results. It was awful. I think going through surgery and chemo should give you a pass on the wait time. Praying for another good report. I hope everyone is doing ok. I pray for you all.

So I called my oncologist’s office today after not hearing anything about my CT scan on Monday. The nurse advised radiology had not look at it yet. So now I have to wait until Monday, at least. I’ve never had to wait this long before for my results. Beyond frustrated right now.....
