I have a chest CT with contrast on Monday, the 4th. So, of course, I woke up this morning unable to swallow, with throat edema, tight neck muscles, a suspicious new 'lump' under my ear, jerky tongue, dry eyes, and various other worrisome aches and pains... Darn that scanxiety.
Had to wait over three months for the insurance to okay the scan. As I haven't had any serious symptoms, they won't allow a three-year PET-CT, either full body or head/neck area, even though I had some lung nodules. It was a fight a year ago to get the two-year scan.
Enough whining. Off to work.
