I’m not exhaling quite yet, but I did receive what I take to be a good report from my PET/CT scan. According to the oncology nurse who called, everything looks stable and the radiologist saw nothing new. This is presumably the same rad who read my PET/CT scan in January, so she had that study for comparison, which is an important consideration. There is an area of hyperintensity in the right buttocks, but that’s where my last met was removed in February, so I presume that’s what’s happening there. I asked to have the report faxed to me, but we had a technical failure so I’ll have to wait a while longer to see it. I also never heard directly from the oncologist, which is about par for the course. I hope to have that conversation tomorrow, and learn a few more of the nuances of the study.
So this little psychodrama continues. Thanks for bearing with me. I feel a great shadow cast across my path has passed, and I see some light again.
