Had my 6 months scans today, got the green light so I am good to go! Needless to say I am pretty cock-a-hoop about that!! By way of celebration we are all going out for a slap up meal and a couple of bottles of Saint Emillion to wash it down with:)

    Great news!

    I think cock-a-hoop and a slap up meal is indicated. Is that a good thing? Sounds french. I know a couple bottles of Saint Emillion belong in the celebration. I hope that's more like champagne and not perrier. Kidding aside. Good for you!!! Make it happen every 6 months.

    SIX month scan

    Congrats....just wondering if you know, why do some wait for 6 months to get the first scan and others only wait 3 nonths. I have to wait 7 months for the first scan. Do you know if its related to the pathology report or just the level of healthcare service and how crowded it is.

    That is great news DJ! Keep

    That is great news DJ! Keep up the good work! Throw in some dancing and things will be set! Sounds like an invitation to a party to me! Good going! 

     

    JKNorth...  Others will chime in but my thoughts about the rate of scans depends on your pathology.  How big the mass was, the grade, the type etc.  If they say wait seven months maybe they don't expect to find anything and feel you will not have any new mets.  I have heard of 3 months, six months and a year being the normal. I have not heard of 7 months.  Are you following up with an oncologist and not just the gp or surgeon? Be sure to see an Oncologist, they would usually order one sooner.  If you are seeing one then maybe you don't need the scan sooner.  Usually the best route is to have a whole body/ct pet scan.  All the best!

    Haha! Thanks Fox! there was not much in the line of Perrier flowing last night, although the way my head felt this morning perhaps there should have been! It was certainly a night too remember, unfortunately none of us can:)

    Oh yes! You know what it's

    Oh yes! You know what it's like when you live in the back of beyond, where there is little entertainment. You have to be blessed with a good imagination and the ability to improvise! Unfortunately! there was a little too much drinkin and a little less slappin and hoopin for my liking!

    Had a terrible head this morning, made worse by my other half, who got up at 7am to cook bacon and eggs. The smell of food and him singing "It's a New Dawn, It's a New Day, It's a New Life" came so very close to ending his!

    Love your spirit

    Dj-love your spirit!  So happy for your good news.  I'll be looking for good news myself, come early December.  Till then, I'll try to limit how much time I spend each day, thinking about it.  I've never been one to obsess over things...especially things out of my control, but my experience with cancer and now, the after effects, seems to creep into my head at any given moment during any given day.  Perhaps a bottle of Saint Emillion would do me good Wink
