Hoping for a false alarm....

Recommended Posts

So for the last week I’ve had a mild headache that will not go away. Doc isn’t overly worried but before prescribing something like Flonase, he’s ordering up a MRI just to be certain.  As far as I’m concerned I had a lifetime of Flonase last summer and actually prefer the MRI.  

I’m 12 days away from CT scan, may as well have the full Monty. In the interim I’ve got a very important pedicure this afternoon.  

Thanks for going through this with me gang!

Hang in there.  I had a mile one for 3 days.  Nothing for the last 4 days.  Hopefully allergies.  I cannot even take Flonase.  I am subject to bad nose bleeds due to eustachian tube dysfunction but the Flonase side effect is ----- yup, nose bleeds!  

Go have that all important pedicure this afternoon.  Then wear your cutest sandals tomorrow.

Michelle,

I hope it's nothing 🙏 - I've had a migraine every day since Tue, I'm hoping it's just stress related, but reading your post and Terri's make me wonder and worry (cuz worry comes with this territory).

Sending you hugs, keep us posted and make sure to get some flower design on your big toes!

Hi MB,

Yeah, the worry comes along on this ride.  My doc operates out of an abundance of caution with a report everything rule.  My scheduler called today for the MRI, obviously not an emergency as appointment is on 7-22, just before CT on 7-23. Scan-a-mania week!  Good thing Row camp is next weekend. I’ve started to negotiate spa discounts & I’m getting anywhere from 25-40% off services!!  

Onward...

Every ache and pain comes along with another level of concern now.  The up side is those little things in life that felt like big concerns no longer do.  Lots of perspective with this journey.  

Good luck with the scans and enjoy that pedicure.  It sounds way more important than the rest.

Yeah that’s right!  My brother in law is visiting this week. He inspected my trike tires and said the tires are too low- duh. I just thought I was slow.  After that adjustment I’m pretty close to my pre cancer speed!  Row camp is next weekend, it’s going to be quality over quantity!

Rower Michelle - as you and I both know, the waiting is the worst. Will be hoping all is ok with your CT!!! Husband's PET is this Thursday along with his bronchoscopy/EBUS procedure for the lymph nodes. Sending lots of love to you!
