No results yet
I had my PET scan yesterday. They told me that the scan would be read later that day. So I figured I'd get my results today.
But I didn't. No call from my oncologist.
This could mean a number of things that are going through my mind right now.
1. Everything is perfectly fine, my oncologist was just very busy today. This is what I pray is the case.
2. The nurse/tech who did the scan screwed something up and it wasn't completed correctly or for some reason just was never read. Despite my positive experience I had back in August with this scan originally, I was not impressed this time around. The lady who administered everything with the scan was not very professional, and she had me lie with my arms above my head for the entire 30+ minute scan. This was NOT comfortable. And by the end, it took all my will power not to jump out of that machine, for my arms hurt so badly.
3. There's something the "reader" doesn't understand, so they need some extra time to research whatever the issue is.
4. There's something bad...more cancer...and the doctor didn't have the time to call to explain it all today.
I'm sure it's number one...but until I hear those words...that there is no cancer, I think I'll be a bit on edge. I'm DEFINITELY calling tomorrow!
