...but necessary just the same. I've spent more than a few hours this week at the doctors... I got a mammogram, bone density test, colonoscopy, all results are fine, and a CT of the chest (follow up scan). Today I went to my Oncologist to find out the results of yesterday's scan. Looks like those lung nodules are still there, and have increased in size slightly from 2-3 mm to 4-5 mm in size. May mean nothing but may mean "early metastatic disease" to quote the radiology report, so I'll go again in 3 months for another scan work up, chest to pelvis. Dr. Z says not to worry, the nodules could be past scar tissue from prior illness, and we'll just follow up and keep an eye on things. I feel good so I'm just going to forget about it for the next ~3 months with the usual scanxiety the week before.
Later today I see the Dermatologist to get zapped with the frozen stuff and get a mole removed, what fun!
I planned it all for the same week as to enjoy the rest of the summer. It's been a bit rainy here this week in Atlanta anyway, so I haven't missed much. Next week I'll be back to golf and tennis and having summer fun!
