Well I finally got the scan. It was done at a new satalite imaging center. Very very posh and I really felt welcomed. The place looked like a cross between a ritzy spa and disneyland's fancy hotel. very sureal indeed!
The i.v. set up is always the hardest part for me. Tiny, scarred veins. Plus today, I was so dehydrated the nurse worried about finding one at all.
Must have been my lucky day. She used a really really hot towel and a super tiny baby needle and woohoo, she got it on the first try. She said the veins are so fragile and tiny, she was amazed. Patty is the best nurse in my book!!
The scan tech was also just as wonderful. poor young guy seemed so worried about my pain. He was so gentle helping me to lie down and the during the scan. The contrast really hurt going in, darn tiny veins.
Anyway, I assume that I will hear from the onc tomorrow (today).
Pain really does a number to my brain. I feel so vulnerable and weak. Crying way to much. Snapping at hubby for no reason at all. Just feel totally out of it and totally over it!
I'll let you know what I find out.
Hugs to all
