My onc has me scheduled for a scan Tuesday morning. THen I see him that afternoon to get the results. THat is what I like about getting all of my care at an NCI hospital. I used to have to fight with my old oncologist to get the results. This is my first scan since before surgery when they found the last liver tumor. I am expecting good results.

Best of luck, Jeff...know you're going to show good response...you just gotta' after this beating, right? You don't have to answer, 'cause I already know:)

Love my NCI facility as well...all my cancer team is there and I'm slowly moving other aspects of healthcare there as it comes up...like ENT...

My place has got a great system in place to get your results...it's called MyChart and your bloodwork and even scan results can be posted there for the patient to log on and review. No muss - no fuss. I really love that feature.

That's nice and fast. I usually go in the week before for the scan. I could cut it closer but I like going in on the same day of the week. But never do I get results the same day. It is nice when you're dealing with a very good cancer facility. Things often seem to run smoother overall.
I hope you get the good results that you're expecting.

Polly wanna good results?

but that's because I come in from out of town (and because my surgeon reads the scans himself.) I feel very fortunate.

However, I'm being switched to MRIs starting with my next scan (fall of 2013), as my dr considers me at low risk of recurrence. No more glowing in the dark! (How will my husband find me? Oh, that's right, he knows Braille ;-) )

Wishing you the best of luck. That would be nice getting the results that fast. My doctor visit is usually about a week after. Hate the waiting. Have a great Tuesday.

We all use the term "roller coaster ride" to describe the cancer journey but it can be one heck of a ride of emotions over the course of one day waiting for scan results. It never gets easier no matter how many times you do it. In fact i think it all gets harder the more you do it which is contradictory to most things in life. Usually things get easier over time and with experience. It just goes to show you how much cancer goes against the natural laws of life.

Everytime i am hugging the toilet sick from treatment I say to myself this is no way to live. But this time I find myself thinking the same thing when waiting for scan results.

They say that stress can contribute to the developement or progression of cancer. It is a vicious circle if that is true when you concider the almost unbearable amount of emotional stress that this "roller coaster ride" puts us through.
,,,
I am greatly concerned about all of the stress it puts my family through. I see the pain on my wifes face with bad news and i could hear the emotional releif in her voice on the phone yesterday when i said my scan was clean.

I realized that we hide our emotions from each other out of concern for adding any more stress each other.

Great to hear that your scan was clean!

Yes, the stress of cancer impacts us all and all those close to us.

Hugs and here's to many more clear scans in your future.

I think we all need to hear good reports from others for inspiration. I know it really helps me to hear good news from others on this forum.

If they only new the stress we went through waiting for those results. I usually find out the same day, but I see so many on here have to wait a week for their results. Can't imagine the stress level involved waiting for the phone to ring. The sad thing is they know our results before we leave the room. I live in a small rural town where the pet/ct scan is actually brought in as a mobile unit almost like a RV, I guess by accident they had the previous person's scan still on the computer screen. Just walking by I could see where there was a pixel for every area of the body, I could clearly see the person in front of me where nothing was "lit" up. So why do we have to wait for a so called expert to read our results. Even someone telling us from a visual perspectve everything appears to be fine would make such a difference. Our group needs to work on this, there is no reason for these long waits. Not fair to us or our families. Tell your oncologist your not leaving until he takes a quick look at your scan, that's what I did, so far so good. chuck
