Flyman35 Posted July 16, 2009 Share Posted July 16, 2009 We saw the Onc today. Onc asks Tom "So how are you feeling." Tom says "I feel great." I say, "you're a** you feel great. Except when you're hacking up a lung every time you're on you're feet or lying down." They gave me a funny look. I said, "What? It's the truth." They drew blood and all his numbers are perfect. They ordered the next CT which will be on 8/3. Tom has been complaing of shoulder and upper arm pain for the last couple of months so he will have an MRI of his shoulder the same day. The Onc said that since he has had the pain since before the PET was done in May then it would have show on the PET if it was cancer. He said a bone scan will only tell that it's not cancer but it won't tell you what it is. So if it's something like a torn muscle or rotater it will show that on an MRI. If this scan comes up clean Tom will graduate to every 6 month scans. That sure would be a nice way to celebrate his 18 month survival mark. So we wait until the 3rd.
