Survived First Scan


Recommended Posts

I couldn't wait until my oncologist got back to town next week. Fortunately, my surgeon is a good guy and saw me this morning. My scan was clear with NED. The report does reveal that I have a slightly enlarged thymus gland. The surgeon does not believe it is anything, but to ease my mind is going to have me do a PET scan. The back pain I've been experiencing is post surgical pain aggravated by my recent increased activity. The scan shows no sign of bone mets. Heavy sigh!!!! I have been more stressed the last couple of days than I have been during this entire experience. Hopefully these scans will get easier over time. Thank you all for your kind words and support. Only fellow cancer survivors can truly understand how scary it is to watch and wait.
