So, I got my CT Scan done on Wednesday and the results today.
Three spots of interest on the liver. One they believe to be scar tissue from the Ablation. Another one looks allot like a hema - somthing. Some kind of blood flilled thingy. I'm usually better at getting information, but obviously not today (Edit: I do believe he called it a Hemangioma). The third one they are really not too sure about. It is close to the pancreas.
So, what are they going to do? Chemo, surgery, no, they are going to keep an eye on them, and on my CEA. Right now my CEA has dropped down from 20 to 1.5 since the Ablation, and the Oncologist is happy with that.
I'm not bummed. I'm going to England and nothing short of something REALLY bad, is going to stop me. I have the blessing of my Oncologist too, and he would tell me if he thought I should not be going.
As I was driving the 160 miles home, all alone, I was thinking about life and death, and how blessed I feel to be alive. I will try my very, very best to not grumble over the simple things. The IV, Colonoscopy, drinking nasty liquid. In fact, when I was preparing for the CT Scan, with every sip of that thick, white stuff, I raised my cup to all of those from this forum who have passed since I joined. I named a name for each sip, Dick, JBG, Sandi's hubby, Doc Hawk, Vicki, Judy, Ren, Buz, Bigman for Christ, Joemetz..... oh the list is too, too long. I know they would or their loved ones would give anything to be the one drinking the goop, having the IV, the scan.
So, I say happy day for me. I will go forward happy and live my life to the fullest, no matter how long it is going to be or what may be on the books in the future.
