Results are in!

I received the results of my CT scans from last week today. I have to preface this all by saying that I have not talked to my doctor. I have an patient records program online with my hospital. It keeps track of all your appointments and bills and test results. My results were put on that program. As a former RN, I understand most of what I am reading. However, I do not believe this is the best way for patients to receive news like this. My doctor has received a more in-depth report from the radiologist, but I have not heard from him, nor do I expect to. I have an appointment with him on June 25th for my next round of chemo and I am guessing that is when he will talk to me about the results. (which is shameful….that is 2.5 weeks away and 3 weeks after the scans were done – no cancer patient should have to wait for news from their scans like that.) If I do hear from him, I will be pleasantly surprised and will mention it on here. The news….no shrinkage….no growth. Everything is stable. It appears there are no new growths. Stability or shrinkage was what we were looking for, so this is good news. This chemo is easily tolerated. My rashes are gone (praise God) and the big blisters I am getting on my toes aren’t too awful. I do feel awful for about a week after chemo, but then I feel pretty normal for 3 weeks after that, which is a true blessing. Yes, I get tired every now and then, but for the most part, I am living a good life, even if it is one that is sequestered away from everyone. Thank you for all the prayers, my prayer warriors. God is listening and currently giving me a reprieve for now.

  1. Prayers answered for now and I totally agree with u about the method of communication even for simple things that Kenneth and I are faced with it is very distanced from what I would call care and in ur situation it is even more wrong. God has a plan for u and we all need to trust in his plan and love. I don’t know about u but when I read ur report I was able to take a deep breath again. ❤️
