One Year Check Up Looming!

My one year check-up is coming up on Tuesday. Chest x-ray and kidney scan. I’m getting nervous so please wish me luck. Worst part is, usually I see my oncologist afterwards so we can discuss the results but this time I won’t see him until April 2. And MSK posts the results of the tests online so I can look forward to trying to decipher med-talk and scaring myself to death without any guidance. Not looking is not an option; I know myself and won't be able to stand not peeking, lol.

  • When I go to the same place

    When I go to the same place in July later this year, I believe they are taking care of everything in one day.  I just checked my appointments, and I am getting a chest X-ray, ultrasound, blood work and a visit with the doctor all on the same day.  I wonder why they are splitting your appointment in two days?  They may be doing it all in one day because I am coming in from NJ.    Maybe you have 2 appointments because of the anemia issue?  Either way, good luck, and I hope it all goes well. Last time, I did not see Dr. R, but one of his associates.

    Thank you both!

    Thank you both! Positive_Mental, mine are always on the same day too and was orginally scheduled that way. But Dr. Russo is not going to be in on Tuesday so they rescheduled that part for April 2. Maybe one year follow ups are with him? I also saw his fellow at the six month check up.

    Gingersnaps, wishing your son the best.

    Seems a lot of us are having scans here soon.  Hope all goes will with your scans and NED is found!!  Positive thinking.!  I know I usually see my doc after scan is done, and it would make me more tense to have to wait.  But it is good it will be online for you to see.  I will be praying for you.

    Thank you so much Fox and Brea. You guys are the best. Fox, hope all is going well with you!

    Brea, yes, I'd love to be able discuss with my doc but unfortunately he can't be there. I'm going to be scared $hitless looking online but know I won't be able resist it. I had a small, under 1 cm growth on my other kidney that showed up last scan and they said to monitor it. Keeping fingers crossed it's gone or is smaller, but not bigger.

    waiting is hard

     My son's scans were yesterday. I'm trying to get him to call today. It's so hard waiting. Hope you get news soon.

    The ultrasound lady told me

    The ultrasound lady told me they wouldn't let me leave if there was serious concern. Since they let me leave, I'm cautiously optimistic that everything was ok. Still sweating the chest x-ray but keeping my fingers crossed for good results all around. I would imagine they'll post results in a day or two.

    Gingersnaps, hope scans are back and all it well. Yes, the waiting is awful. I actually started to cry during the US from all the stress. Which at this rate will probably get me first, lol.

     No news. My son called buy

     No news. My son called buy nurse said the Dr. didn't look at the results yet. Maybe tonight after hours. My son is working so he probably won't know anything tonight.

    Everything came back clear.

    Everything came back clear. There's a subcentimeter lesion on the same kidney they operated on that they'll continue to monitor but they think it was there previously. I'll have to discuss it with my onc/surgeon when I see him next week. But otherwise no recurrence and chest x-ray is clear as well. Whew.

    Piece of cake

    APny,

     

    Now that the scan is over with, there was nothing to worry about anyway.
