Call me NED...

In cancer lingo, that means "No Evidence of Disease". Maybe I'll change my name to NED legally like that guy on the Bengals who changed his name to Ocho Cinco. Because I'm feeling particularly foolish today.

Just Wait...

My new oncologist (oh, I didn't tell you, I have a new oncologist), apparently didn't read my chart and see that I'm allergic to the IV contrast they use in the CT scans. And apparently you need to start a pre-medication regimen 13 hours before your scan if you're allergic to contrast. Sooooooo...I'm now scheduled for a scan on Jan 15th and I'll be meeting with the doctor to get the results on Jan 19th.

Maybe sometime between now and then I'll post some pictures or something to tide you over till we have some real news.

Def: (n) the tension which builds particulary amongst those who have or have had cancer as they move towards their regular check up scan, hyperscanxiety being the period as they await results!

CT Scans and chest x-ray today. Results Tuesday. The waiting is the worst part.
