Justakid Posted April 11, 2005 Share Posted April 11, 2005 I give up! If it's gonna happen it will be to me! My regular CT Scan for today was rescheduled for Wednesday. So I have an appt with my Pulmonary doc today! I get rushed over to the hospital to be scanned to make sure that I didn;t have a PE or that the cancer had not eaten through the walls of my lungs because of my breathing. The Doctor has no idea why I am wheezing so bad, he doesn't think I'm that sick! He thinks all my meds are screwed up and is taking me off of a lot of them including the predinisone. He said he uses this high dose of prednisone as a last resort. I have now gained 50 lbs in 6 weeks (2 days shy). Here we go, that damn roller coaster ride. I couldn't hold it together this time, I tried so hard! I have been so strong but this time during the CT Scan I started to cry quietly, when the technician came to get me off the table she asked if I was OK and I said it had to be a good scan. She said she didn't see any PE, in other words she wasn't willing to comment on the cancer but I at least knew that there was no PE and basically that the cancer had not eaten through the lining of my lungs because the doctor would have put me in the hospital right then. BUT I still don't know about any changes to the cancer from the Alimta. What a day! So tired! Prayers for Wednesdays Scan.............. Lots of Xanax tonight!
