Well, today I will be re-scanned at the radiation treatment center. Today will be my 23rd IMRT & the re-scanning is actually to let them see what adjustments need to be made on the radiation beam for the last (12) treatments. In doing so, however it will show them what the treatments have done so far as to shrinking the tumor + nodes. So even though this won't be a CT with contrast, as far as I know, it will show them what (if any) success we've had with the treatments as to the specific areas being treated.

So I am praying there will be some positive results & will let everyone know when I find out which will probably be tomorrow. I could certainly use & appreciate everyone's prayers.

Well the results from the Radiation Onc today were somewhat inconclusive. First of all, the CT scan they do is not with contrast. Basically he could not see any visible changes, but he also said that can be hard to determine when you are talking a tumor & node(s) as small as mine. I guess that's where the contrast helps. But the good news I guess is that nothing grew larger. Of course he said they rarely see that during radiation anyway.

I have (12) more scheduled IMRT's & (2) weekly chemo treatments left before my full tests at MD Anderson. That will be on 3/12 and I'll get the results on 3/13. So I guess no news is good news..
