gail Posted December 22, 2005 Share Posted December 22, 2005 Some background: Fall allergy season, much post nasal drip. Due to multi-nodular goiter putting pressure on my windpipe, there was much coughing at night. One night I coughed so hard I checked to see that my eyeball was still intact. Developed rib pain, severe enough to go to the primary. She put my on anti-inflamatories and sent me for rib xrays. Went to the local place. (2nd week of november). Clear. Had a CT scan scheduled on the 15th as well. Saw onc Nov 22. Told him about rib pain, which was subsiding, but still there. Scheduled a bone scan Dec 7 I did not call for results. It is the christmas season and they would call me. Now the report: Nurse left a message last night. "Nothing to worry about" but call. Called today. "Some activity on one rib" (Think I can remember which one?) He wants a rib xray, but feels it could be a rib fracture. The pain has drastically subsided[/b] Now my questions: Anybody have "activity" on a bone scan that was not serious? My brain is running in overtime. With the history of breast cancer, I feel there is a double demon lurking. This is why God created ativan and created doctors who will subscribe. Oh, and for sure today, I am call my spa gift certificate place and whatever is availabe tomorrow afternoon, I am taking it. gail Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
