Getting really nervous about my scans and x-ray tomorrow. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers and wish me a nice visit from Uncle Ned. Won't see my doc until Friday but they posts results of tests online so I'll be an anxious mess checking daily. I don't know why but I'm really more scared this time than last couple of time.

You're in my thoughts and prayers, I'm sure NED will pay you a visit, please tell  our beloved uncle we have many more members in line to visit him.

Seems scanciety never ends but it doesn't mean that ugly tumor have a chance to come back, no, it's gone for ever. You're fine and sweet uncle will send you an email to let you know it.

Forough

Thank you so much, everyone. I don't know why this time I'm so anxious. I'm so grateful for this forum and everyone who's been talking me down from the ledge for over two years now. Can't wait to see Uncle Ned so I can send him on to others! xx

Wishing you all the best! Sending you all good, postive hugs for tomorrow. I haven't had to get my first scans yet but I'm sure I will need some talking from the ledge too!

Sorry for what you are going through. Soon you'll know so don't waste energy you need to enjoy your life now.

Put your mind on something you enjoy to distract you. Then treat yourself to something wonderful as a reward.

You are in good hands! Let us know ok hon?

Hugs, Jan

Hope for the best!! It always amaze me to see how fast everyone here sees their docs to get the results of scans and the fact that you have access to results online. I always have a min. of 3 weeks between the scan and the appointment with the doc and no online results. Cheers to you and a wish for good results!!

 The good wishes and prayers means the world to me.

 Dave, that’s awful having to wait that long. Getting results posted online is a mixed blessing. On one hand you don’t have the interminable wait time but on the other hand you’re terrified of opening it. And Googling the hell out of it, naturally.

 I think the kidney scans went ok because the unofficial word from the doc who read them before letting me go is that there is no change from last time, so that’s good. Chest x-ray won’t be online for several days so I’m of course sweating that (former smoker in my misguided youth, so that doesn’t help). Friday I see my oncologist for official word.

Thank you again; you guys rock! xo

APny,

 

With a little bugger so far this Doctor (of law) does not expect anything to show up on the Chest XRay.

I wish I could give you all a big hug. As it is, will you settle for a virtual one? (((((())))))  Can't thank you enough for all the support. I keep obsesssively checking the online site for results and at the same time dreading them. Can you say conflicted?

Sorry for your anxiety waiting and waiting.

BUT I always get my OWN copy of the written report, a day or two after any test/procedure.

What they put online is applied ONLY after the MD releases it.

So go get your own copy if you think you can handle it.

I'm here for you,

Jan

Jan, yes, these are my own copies. I have an account at MSK (as does every patient) and what they put online is the same thing my oncologist gets and my PCP can access. I had the tests on Monday so they post the results a couple of days later. I can then print them from there. I see my oncologist to discuss them on Friday. It's only been two days, so I'm just impatient.

No, I meant I go and PICK UP MY OWN copies before they are even posted online or see the Neuro.

That way I know right away and can ask pertinent questions at next appointment.the online report is ONLY posted when the MD who ordered the test releases it. You can see it sooner if you pick up a copy. Less anxiety?

Can't you go pick up the written report?

These tests that we go through are the opposite of tests at school. Students study before the test (usually :)), but for medical tests? We have the test, then study every detail afterwards. LOL.

I am the same as you Apny! After I get test results I google every term, every word and try to understand it all.

Waiting is terrible. Thinking about you!

Hugs

Jojo

Jojo, So true about the testing situation. Hopefully I have nothing new to learn. I could use a little ignorance Smile

Fox and Footie, you guys crack me up even if half the time what you say is over my head, lol.

But I’m kicking him out so he can continue his rounds to your house. Thanks everyone for all the prayers, good wishes, and for just being there during this past nerve wrecking week. All is clear and I’m good to go for another six months. We’re keeping eye on two small (under a centimeter) lesions believed to be angiomyolipomas, one in each kidney. Which I had no idea what they were until I googled them. They’ve been there unchanged for over a year so doc was not terribly concerned. Bottom line: I’m boring and unremarkable. Just the way I like myself!

All the best to everyone!

Andi xoxo

Excellent, congratulations!

expected results, btw! :-)

My husband also has 4 mm angiomyolipoma in his other kidney. He also has just doscovered it during last check up. Ultrasound doc and urologist are not worried at all, because it was seen on his CT in 2014  (but not mentioned in report, as obviously benign) and hasn't changed since.

Small unchanging angiomyolipomas are absolutely harmless, and some docs even believe the don't need a follow up, so safe and unremarkable they are.

So, hugs and kisses! Send Uncle Ned to others with upcoming tests.

I know what you going through, I'm still going every six months for a checkup and I'm nervous.  It's only natural, our prayers are with you.

Just saw the good news, great. Way to hang in there
