CT Scan Results

I had my annual CT scan yesterday.  First in, first out.  I even had the same tech as last year and we remembered each other.  He did just as good of a job and, surprisingly, the results were posted on Stanford's health portal already, 24 hours later.  Another year of NED.  This was my fourth anniversary scan.  Last year, they told me it would be the last, so it'll be interesting to see what the nurse pracititoner or physician's assistant says on the 15th when I have a video appointment with them (I guess the doctor only talks to sick people, as I haven't seen him since the day after the operation).

    Keep it up

    They may follow up with US. They do for me as I have always had a sub cm syst in the spare.

    Great news!

    I had my 4th ct in January this year. Next year he said ultrasound and chest xray. 

    Happy for you!

    Nice when the scans are just

    Nice when the scans are just routine, isn't it?  I had mine Monday, and it was posted on the portal the same day.  My appointment with the urologist is tomorrow, in person and with the actual surgeon.  My results look fairly straightforward, although I have questions about thickening of the adrenal gland on the nephrectomy side.  That hasn't been mentioned on the previous scans.

    That's awesome, Bay

    To my fellow "four-year chromie partner"--I'm so pleased with your results.  My scans are scheduled for the 26th.  I'll have my scans and bloodwork in the morning then meet with one of the doctors in the afternoon.  If everything comes back clear, we'll have to have a long-distance toast to each other!

    Doesn't appear so, Annie.  We're hoping maybe a road trip if things open up more, but who knows.  We were booked and ready for cherry blossoms in Japan in late March/early April, but I guess if we had gone, we'd still be eating sushi (which would not be a bad thing).

    But I'm guessing international travel will probably depend on a vaccine, and we'd prefer not to be in the first group that takes it.  I'd rather see if people grow a third arm or go blind or have any other serious side effects before taking it.

    So, boring it will be for a while.
