Update and CT Scan - Lung Cancer



https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:UPMCEast_CTscan.jpg

Had a CT scan February 4th and this morning I received a call to remind me of an appointment with my oncologist on Tuesday the 12th. I know for sure that no appointment was made for said date. This is probably just a follow-up but still, I cannot help but worry.

The last CT was in October and it was decided that I stop chemo for the time being as the scan looked good, and nothing had changed. I was and still am ecstatic over this. Five full years of chemo is enough, don’t you think.  

Once you’ve had cancer you (at least me) are worried and on guard of it returning (which has happened to me 4 times).

When they gave me a prognosis 5 years and 4 months ago of one to five years, I was determined to make it past that. My husband said they were leaning towards the one year to live mark. I guess you hear what you want to hear in a life and death situation. I heard 5, he heard 1 Most time's when I have an appointment with my oncologist, I bring someone with me as an extra set of ears because I myself tend to hear what I want to hear.

Don’t get me wrong I’ll never give in to this disease, and I’ll always stay as positive as possible.

Believe that you can beat lung cancer. Never give up and never give in.

Please think positive thoughts for me this upcoming Tuesday and thank you for visiting my blog.
