This morning we got a 'sneak peek' at Don's CT results and the report sounds VERY good - as in NED good!!!
Don has been having pains in his abdominal area for the past couple of weeks and finally yesterday it got so bad that he asked for pain pills left over from chemo and rads. He only took one pain pill during treatment - so it really got my attention when he took two yesterday.
He never even went outside which is unheard of for him. He was sleeping when I left for work so I left a note and asked him to call me when he woke up. He still was feeling terrible and tired, so I said enough - we are not waiting until Friday (our appointment for the CT results) - we're calling the doc today. So I called the cancer center and our onc is out until Friday but they had another onc read the results and they said there is nothing there that would cause any pain (meaning that on the CT scan there is no cancer showing ~~ LOVE LOVE LOVE that report!). Anyway they said to call the surgeon - so I did and he said - nothing would be going on due to any surgical related issue so call your primary care doctor. Did that and got in this afternoon. The pain is quite severe and the doc sent Don for bloodwork and tomorrow morning he is having an ultrasound - they are looking at possible issue/s with the gallbladder! Who would think that???
We can deal with the gallbladder - that's way better than the pain being caused from the cancer. We won't get those results until Thursday due to the July 4 holiday (what is it with us and the holidays?)
Has anyone else heard of had any issues with their gallbladder after going through all this?
I am keeping a close eye on him and doc prescribed a milder pain med - so I hoping he can hang in there but if not - we'll go the ER - I don't want him to be in pain a minute longer than he needs to and I don't want to wait too long and have even bigger issues.
We'll let you all know what we found out as soon as we know something. In the meantime, thank you so much for your prayers and all that positive mojo. We are good for now and LOVING it!!!
