Topic: Good scan one year after surgery
I mentioned before that my wife was scheduled for a CAT scan on July 4th, the first anniversary of her surgery. We learned this week that the scan was clean.
Thank you everyone for your well wishes before the scan! We are so grateful to have your support.
P.S. The way we learned the results is a bit unfortunate. I took my wife to ER on Monday, after she developed major abdominal pain. And when I say major, I really mean it. She looked a complete wreck. ER doctor was the one who told us about the clean scan.
Luckily, the trip to ER ended up being a false scare. All tests turned up normal. It's embarrassing to say, but they diagnosed her with ... *ahem* ... sever constipation. They told us to take laxatives and sent us home. Who knew that constipation can be so agonizingly painful??? I did some googling afterwards. Apparently it happens even to healthy people. Never mind CC patients who had a Whipple surgery, and then got zapped with a high dose of radiation to their belly.
