Patti B Posted August 20, 2008 Share Posted August 20, 2008 Well, another day, another possible bad news. My PA just called to tell me that there was something "questionable" on the brain scan. She is begging me not to freak out because normally the doc who reads it would say "highly suspicious for cancer" and he did not. Says it could possibly be a blood vessel. Its less than 1 cm which she said, worse case scenrario would mean one shot of gamma knife. She is not even going to prescribe me steroids yet. She called and has gotten me an appointment for a MRI on Monday afternoon. She kept stressing to me that I should not freak out and of course I said I wouldn't....... yeah, right. This means I tell my husband bad news this weekend about my lung scan and have to withhold this new bit of news from him until I know whats going on. And of course, I won't tell Nick this one until I know for sure one way or another. He freaked out when I told him about my lung scan - threw a kitchen chair across the room and was screaming his lungs out. I hate doing this to my son, I really do. I guess I have been just plugging along for almost two years relatively easily. No side effects from chemos, no progression, no radiation, no nothing except a blood clot and some high blood pressure. Now maybe its all catching up to me....... Will let everyone know what happens - Tara said she will call me late Monday afternoon. Hugs - Patti B.
