Topic: Clean scan
Despite having severe "different" back pain, a sore liver, and feeling queasy I just got back my PET-CT scan and it came back clean. Apparently the pain in my liver is caused by the nerve endings in the area of my surgery incision have decided to start working again and are just a little confused about which signals to send. The back pain and queasiness--blame it on my head. I have been so stressed and worried about this scan that I literally made myself sore and sick. The fact that it took over 3 weeks to get the results of the scan(dr on vacation!!) didnt help. I guess I am not as emotionally strong as I would like to be!
I am so happy. I have passed the 6 month mark with no reoccurance. Another scan in a couple of months to mentally prepare for, I just wish I was stronger.
