Whoa!  That is a long time in the clanging tube.

Good luck with the rest of your appointment.

Oh, I feel for you!  I once had MRI of my head, cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine all in one shot and was in the tube for at least two hours.  I felt like I was ready for the looney bin after they let me out of that thing and I'm not even claustrophobic!  I'm glad you have this done and I hope you will get all good news on the results!

Lori

my appt was moved to this week and I should have thought to let you know. I got in on the 19th and was at MDA on the 20th and 21st.  Just got home. I am so bummed that I missed you! Glad you got good news! Congrats on graduating to 6 months!  I didn't see Dr Eng this time. Just Dr Chang. Scans and scopes. All good. Dr Chang released me!  He said I am now just with Dr Eng! It was bittersweet in a way. I love Dr Chang. But I continue to graduate so thank God for that. Let me know when your next appt is. Mine is in August. 

Hugs

liz

Lori, have you gotten any news yet on your follow-up tests?  I hope you're not still waiting and that all the news is good!

Liz, it's great that you have been released by one of your doctors.  I'm coming up on 6 years post-diagnosis and still have 2 out my 3 (my rad onc discharged me almost 4 years ago).  I am hoping that when I see my med onc in June, he will cut me loose!  I wish you all the best with the appt. in August!

Darn it Liz!  Those are the days I was there!  I didn't see Dr. Eng either...just Das and Chang both of who I love!  om parol for 6 months, yeah! Dr chang did a couple of biopsies but did not seem worried.  Will see me in 16 months for scan, will see Das in 6 months and I suppose Dr. Eng!  Side effects are what they are and I can deal with them!  No trips to Houston for six months!  Liz let me know when they schedule you next, ok?
