CT Results

Today I got the results from the my CT Scan and there is no cancer present. I can breath another sigh of relief now.

But it was unnerving for a few minutes there. It turns out that the radiologist had not sent the results over to my doctor, even though the test had been on Tuesday. So he went through the scans on the computer and he kept stopping at a certain area. Finally he said he saw something and wanted to talk to the radiologist about it. So they are on the phone talking about this thing they see, asking if I have a fever, etc. Finally they agree that it is probably an infection and I should take antibiotics for it. That would explain me getting winded running up and down the stairs too - so that is good.

The other option is that it is post-radiation changes. Hearing that I went over to my radiation oncologist and he looked at the report. His thought is that it is delayed radiation changes and he was going to look at the scan to confirm as well.

The great news is that it is either an infection or past-radiation changes. No cancer!

My next CT is on April 15th - last year on April 15th is when I had the cancer surgery, so this a good day to do another scan. The results will be out the following Wednesday.

Thank you for all the prayers and support. I truly appreciate. Tonight is celebration night!

That is wonderful news! Just began the second year of lay school and spent many moments wondering what your test results told you. Take time to celebrate with your family.
