about my first pet scan. I have had at least 4 ct scans which are not that bad. I am most worried about being in a tunnel in the dark. I was told to fast for 6 hours before and drink only water. I read somewhere not to exercise vigorously which is never a problem in my life but I do go to yoga on that day. I think I'll skip it this week. I didn't go to my 2-mile walk this morning. I felt so tired yesterday after my mom's party on Saturday and I washed 6 or 7 loads of clothes and got the house back in order on Sunday. I still feel really tired today even though I slept good. I think the stress is weighing on me too although I am remaining in good spirits.
Anything else I should know about the pet scan? I have been prescribed ativan. I can't wait until it's over. I have been in remission for 19 months and I am no longer use to being poked and prodded like I was during treatment. I am not excited about the prospect of going back to that reality.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
