Today we saw Oncologist for two lesions seen on CT scan.
Plan for this week: PET scan and MRI with contrast. Waiting for appointments. He's trying to push them through insurance faster as "urgent". He wants them done this week. Thankful for that.
I have a history of anxiety disorder (severe) including panic attacks and agoraphobia which adds to my stress, although I've been doing much better these days.
One step at a time. Get through each scan. Checking brain with MRI (open MRI) and lower body with PET scan for problems. If any found in lower body (having back and leg pain..another story), biopsy will be done there, before before brain. Assuming all same cause/ type.
If cancer in brain, radiation treatment. No mention of chemo...yet.
Cried most of afternoon as shock wore off.
Now trying to focus on the goal. One step at a time.
My oncologist is well known as one of the best around here.. good for me.
Good thoughts and energy welcome. :)
