First scan after liver resection

Options

I have my first scan tomorrow after a successful liver resection. My last 3 scans weren't good so that's why I had the surgery. I'm just nervous and have some anxiety. I know this a part of my life for the foreseeable future. i know you guys know what I'm going thorough so thanks for letting me vent. Good luck to everyone on what you are going through.

     I can only imagine how

     I can only imagine how stressful it is to hear the results.  I have been there.  I would recommend distracting yourself in whatever way you can.  You can't change the results and what comes after.  But if you distract yourself it will keep you from stressing on it.  I wish you the best of luck!

    Thanks Icy and Trubit. I just finished the scan. I'm doing fine now, I have my fighting spirit back. I guess the dlay before the scan is worse for me. Gonna throw myself into my job and this new book I started. Those are good distractions for me now. Thanks for the advice Icy and good luck on your results Trubrit

    Hope your results were good

    Hope your results were good for you both!  I agree - keep yourself busy and stay as positive as you can under the circumstances.  Anxiety is a terrible thing to deal with, or as we have heard it called here -  "scanxiety". 

    Please let us know how things are going for you.

    Woo hoo!

    Isn't it fun to be 'unremarkable'.  Good luck with the treatment and may you see many a good scan result.
