    OH the waiting game.. so

    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

    Waiting Game

    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.

    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!
