Hi everyone, Im going this morning at 8:30 to have my first Pet/CT scan since my last treatment this last December, and I humbly am asking for any prayers you could say for me. I am really nervous, hence the fact that Im still up and It's 12:15 am here on the east coast. But seriously, any prayers and luck is greatly appreciated!

Thanks All,

GRAVEY

Hi Gravey,

After reading your post I said a special prayer for you that your PET Scan would come back clean and you will be able to relax and enjoy life again. I know how stressful scans are, especially waiting for the results.

Please stay strong and know that there are many on this site who are praying for you.

Take care and stay strong,
Glenna

Thank you all for your kind words and prayers. It's such a scary test too. They bring in the Radiated sugar syringe to your room in a lead box, then when they take it out of the box, the entire syringe is encased in a metal shell, but then they take the syringe, which I think has at least an 18 Gauge needle on it, and inject you with it. And yet the nurse cant even touch the syringe? Yipes. So now the wait is on. It will be at least Monday before I have any news. Thanks again all. Maybe a clean result will bring me one step closer to getting this peg and port taken out, the bane of my existence right now.

Love to you all,

GRAVEY

I remember being extraordinarily calm while I waited for the PET/CT scan. I don't know why. Maybe because it was the first time I was left alone (other than bedtime) since this whole journey began?

Anyway, hang in there.

Best,

Mick

You'll be okay with the results- odds are it's too early for anything but false positives to show. My first came back as a possible under my tongue, but my ENT was not concerned about- said it's an area of common false positives, and I reckon he might be figuring it's too early, post-treatment, for something to really show at a PS/CS. Don't sweat it, Gravey. Things will be okay.

Believe.

Congratulations Gravey!

We're all doing a celebration dance for you! Okay, okay, so mine resembles more of a sideways shimmy.

Keep up the good work and we will keep up the prayers.

Your friend
