Hi all,

As you know I had the CT Scan yesterday. Drank the contrast and also got injected with contrast. Feeling kinda crummy today, sort of flu like nausea. Anybody else have this reaction.

Cheers, Lance

Good Morning, Lance,

I had my CT on Monday and was told to drink larger amounts of fluid than usual. I think the idea is to flush all of that "yummy" contrast out of our system. Maybe that's the culprit.

I hope you feel better soon. Also, worrying about the results isn't condusive to a settled stomach. Please, think about calling the oncologist's office. Two weeks is too long to wait!

Sending you my best.

Water, water, and lots of it. And call your onc for the results, it will settle your mind, which will settle your stomach.

I even made the 'mistake' of putting that on my last CT intake form...and almost messed it up, even after drinking the redi-cat. The tech wanted me to have pre-meds (which I didn't).

Luckily, we chatted about what the symptoms were, and how long she had been scanning me (she had seen me many times before). So, we scribbled off the comment I had made.

But I agree with the water...if I don't, I'm feeling flu-ish the next day...

Isn't it wierd to have a reaction that is considered 'normal', even in it's 'abnormal' situation (cancer treatment)?

Hugs, Kathi
