Doc just called and the knot in hubby's neck is likely scar tissue from radiation and latest CT scan shows NO EVIDENCE OF DISEASE!
This scan came 6 months after post-tx PET last October. Knew the 6-month scan was coming but had not expected the new "knot" in his neck discovered about 4 weeks before the scheduled 6-mth post-tx scan to make the anxiety even worse.
We have been Nervous Nellies for weeks and it didn't get any better at the ENT appt. last week when the doc felt of it and instead of saying "Oh. it's nothing to worry about" like we had hoped, said "I'm not going to tell you not to worry until we get the scan results back."
I feel like I have not taken a complete breathe since last Friday's appointment.
Thanks to all for your support, prayers and for listening. Prayers back to you and yours.
Deb (and Dale)
