My CT-scan went soooo well! My DIL came in to work early to do my scan herself, and got the IV needle in on her very first try! (In June when I had my 'positioning' CT-scan for radiation simulation, 2 different people tried to get into a vein unsuccessfully before they called in the hospital's special 'IV Team' to get a needle in me.) But my DIL got the needle in first try. She pulled up the pictures from my April CT-scan and looked at the 2.7 mm lung nodule; the 3 CT-scan techs in the room all agreed that this was 'absolutely NOTHING' and ridiculous that it was flagged.
Then after the scan was done, she told me that I looked absolutely NED to her, and she hoped the doctor evaluating the scans will "have the bal_s to refute the nodule note from the April scan and mark these new scans NED" ! But even if it says "no change", I'll take that to mean NED! My DIL is only a CT-scan technician, not a doctor. But she sees about 40 scans a day for the past 10 years, and if she says there's nothing there, I will be VERY surprised if the official results show anything different.
So I'm not dancing with NED just yet, but we're already eyeing each other across the dance floor and smiling!
