Thank you for the responses, they are truly appreciated. Now I know its possible so I will ask today when I go for blood work. They have been receptive to me in the past when I've asked for particular tests but for some reason I always feel like pin in the ass when I do it... But I do it anyway. I always tell them if its impossible I will look at doing it privately if I can find out here to go but I'd rather keep everything under my primary oncologist.
Only 12 more days till my next scan! Im sure this must get easier as time goes on (fingers crossed) but right now it feels like I'm living in blocks of time, prescan week - results waiting week- then relatively calm weeks until the next prescan week.
That sounds like complaining, and I guess it is but Im really just trying to share,
generally I'm very positive and grateful that the cancer was caught when it was and that I still have a good life.
Thanks again everyone, I find this column very helpful.
