Day 2 of my scans. The PetCt scan is what will show if there’s any active cancer or progression. This scan really gives me scanixety. Please continue to send positive thoughts and prayers
Got my scan results. The good news is my heart function is normal and there are no brain, liver, or lung metastases. The bad news is that the cancer is again active in my sternum and L1 vertebrae and there is a new spot on my left femoral head.
While I am disappointed about this, I am grateful that I have no pain and that many old lesions are stable. I will learn more when I see my oncologist next week.
Sometimes I feel that my life is lived between scans. Anxiety and hope builds up to the time the results come in. Afterwards, treatment decisions must be made. Then life returns to “normal” until the next scan.
