Another clear CT, again!

Postby AmyG » Sun Jun 07, 2020 4:25 pm

Results came in Friday night to mychart. No evidence of recurrence. I love having all my insides described as unremarkable. :lol:

Labs and appointment on Wednesday, not expecting anything out of the ordinary there. I'm almost 6 full months out from my last treatment. Hair has grown back, most of the neuropathy is gone. Feet still suck a little but it's tolerable.

Everything it's pretty quiet in our neck of the woods. Thankful to still be here. Nicholas is coming up on 15 months old and is such a disaster, it's wonderful. :lol:

Thanks yall! Just got back from seeing the oncologist and surgeon, everything is just fine! Labs look fantastic, CEA is stable at 2.2.

Colonoscopy will be at the end of July or beginning of August and I don't get another CT until September.

BUTT I know how you feel.
I once had a full CT scan done on my head and the Doc reported to me " we found nothing "
SO ..... I told him my wife would probably say the same thing :shock:

Cheers and best wishes :mrgreen:
