Yesterday I got the results of Monday's thoracic/abdominal/pelvic scans with both oral and IV contrast. First time for thoracic, and first time with oral contrast, so I was expecting more detail might turn something up.
Completely clean, with the exception of a single tiny 2mm "indeterminate" lung node. Since it is too small to show up on an x-ray, I may have had it forever, as many people do, and it may be nothing, as most apparently are. Something to keep an eye on for the future, but not to get worried about.
My oncologist and I are very happy to have further insight into the situation, and especially to confirm the somewhat tentative post surgical opinion that there were no known masses. I was bracing for at least some suspicious lymph nodes, given the surgical results, and perhaps some liver irregularities, so I am mightily relieved and my spirits are high!
I was also able to have my 5th infusion--no low blood counts this time--and my WBC, which has been hovering just above 2.0, was all the way up to 7.6 after my shot of neulasta last time! That is actually the first time since surgery it has risen into the normal range.
BTW, I attribute this largely to my very thorough and experienced surgeon, who actually specializes in transplants and is not a board certified CRC surgeon, to my knowledge, although he does lots of them.
