OH the waiting game.. so stressful and on a weekend!

I usually pick up my own copy ahead of appointment so I am prepared and can ask informative questions. But Medical records is not available on weekends.

Do you know the Serenity prayer? (God) Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

I use that prayer often.

We'll be here for you.. let us know how you are doing okay?

Gentle hug, Jan

Thinking of you and know what you are feeling.  I hope you are able to get some sleep tonight and tomorrow will be

here before you know it.  I am sending you positive thoughts for the outcome of your scans. 

My CT scans w/ and without contrast of chest/abdomen/pelvis were on 3/31 and I don't see my oncologist until 4/8 when

he gets back from a European conference. My bloodwork prior to the scan showed a low GFR so I had to have iv

hydration prior to and after scans.   Had a  bad allergic reaction to the contrast  dye again

this time (even w/ meds prior to) so hospital says they won't allow me have contrast at their

hospital again.  I have much to discuss w/ dr. and the waiting game is taking a toll on me in each and every way.

Please take good care and keep us posted.

Diane

That's a long wait for you, Diane. I feel for you. My scans are always a week apart from the follow up visit. I always figure if it is bad, then they would call me beforehand. Howeverlasttime it was like he was looking at the scan for the first time, so now I don't know what to think! Lol

I am sorry you are allergic to the contrast. I wish there was an alternative for those that are allergic.

Thinking about you and hoping for the best results!

Keep us posted!

Hugs
