    Hi

    I can only speak for myself but scanxiety does set in for me every time. I think the intensity or level of it has dropped a bit over the years. I do still feel pains and twinges in the areas affected. I think from reading the posts on this board is that it us a common experience. All that to say you're not aline in all this! My prayers go out to you. Let us know how it goes hopefully NED no evidence of disease!

    i had my four year scan in

    i had my four year scan in June.  Agree that the scanxiety gets better.....minimally.....as the years pass.  The main anxiety this year was CoVid, as we were just getting out of lockdown mode.  But all went well.

    Good luck with scans. For me,

    Good luck with scans. For me, scanxiety did get better with time. After year 4 post diagnosis, I think.

    Hold on and keep us posted!

    I've had so many scans in 13 + years

    that I've stopped counting. It's not the scans, which are uncomfortable with the fun stuff to drink, etc., it's the wait for the results that makes me antsy.

    And for the past three years, I've come to the conclucion that I have been named the winner of the "Screw Up" contest.  If the scheduler, the hospital check in, the wait while ER patientents aare taken first (3 hrs.), the turnover of PA's at the Onc. office, having to have a virtual appt. with a stranger, to name a few; I've come to get annoyed with the whole process  This last one was the office submitted a request to Insurance for the test; but they only authorized it for being done 3 months prior to my next Onc. appointment.  They won't provide info on the results over the phone, so I stil have over a month to wait.

    So good luck with your tests and keep on doing well.

    Hugs, donna_lee

    Had my scan 3 months ago and finally got the news

    Everything was NED; come back in 6 months.  I like those!  My new PA actually has a PhD in Nursing Care so I asked her what I was to call her.  She said, "Just Jodie."  Next up is an appt. with my Nephrologist with a UA and labs next week.

    Hope all went well with your test.
