Andrea Posted August 6, 2004 Share Posted August 6, 2004 You try to go about business as usual. You engage in idle chit chat. You try to stay busy. Suddenly you realize you are eating so much. A wave hits you, you feel lke your stomach dropped on a roller coaster. You know tomorrow is THE day. Scan day!!!! You joke around about how nervous you are. You wonder if you can beg and plead for someone to get you a wet reading of the film the same day. You tell everyone not to call that day or thereafter until you get the results b/c what if the doctor is tryign to call at the same time someone else calls and gets a busy signal (even though you have call waiting, that 1 second lag thing). You tell yourself "CEA is still normal. There are no physical symptoms upon exam by onc to lead to suspicious of a return of the beast. Why are you freaking out? Oh right, because the beast is SILENT. There is no warning tell tale sign of a little met to the liver or brian or adrenal gland or anywhere." So you try to do everything you can to make the time fly by when in reailty there is NOTHING all of this worrying will do for you. It either has resurfaced or it hasn't That's me today. What's for dinner? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
