Tomorrow's My First Pet Scan

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

Well, tomorrow is the day of my first PET scan. I'm scared but also anxious to get going. Won't have any news until Friday when I see the surgeon for the first time. The anxiety is overwhelming. These past two weeks seem like an eternity. If I use the pm button to respond to any one of you directly will you get my message or do I need to do something special? I'm still trying to find my way around the site. Thanks again to everyone for being out there. You all seem like an incredible bunch of folks. Hugs and prayers to all of you.

Lori

I will be praying for you tonight. We have so much to be thankful for in terms of what we have to diagnose, treat, and cure this $*#&!!! Keep your chin up and keep your eye on the prize!

Good luck with your scan.

As everyone has said the scan part is painless and easy. I just get restless from trying to lay still for a long time.

The HARD part is the waiting after... For me the waiting is by far the most painful!! I had mine done the day after christmas and my doc called me on New Years day. The activity of the holiday helped keep my mind off things.

prayers for good results.

Hey Lori -

Good luck today. I will be thinking about you. I do think you will be relieved once you get results and just get moving with everything. We are here for you no matter what.

Hey there Lori ~

Like everybody said, the PET scan is easy, but terribly boring and takes a long time.

Waiting for the results is the most difficult part of it. I wait 24 hours and then call the ordering Doctor to lessen my anxiety.

Remember that we are here for you.
