Sometimes they want additional tests to confirm results on blood work, but my doctor wanted extra blood work after my WBC/RBC were still low after a couple years.  It could be just to rule out things, but not necessarily bad.  It's so frustrating and scary so try again tomorrow to call, but try not to let your mind wander - it's so hard to do though as I'm a worrier by nature.  Don't be alarmed right now, it could be just a precaution test.  Hope all is well.

If I understand correctly, the dr appointment was canceled because they want you to have a CT scan first.

It is not unusual to want the scan after "x" number of treatments to see the status of any tumors which were previously visible.

Hang in there,

To early to panic. I might be a little puzzled but they probably need more info. Pray everything is good. Jeff

I don't think they realize how they scare patients with those type of phone calls and cause unnecessary worry and confusion.  Blood tests, well, they go up and down all the time.  Maybe he just wants the whole picture before he meets with you to determine where to go forward.  Try not to worry too much, it does happen all the time. 

 

Take care - Tina
