    CT results

    I promised I'd add in my CT results. Had a virtual appt with my oncologist this morning. Looks good. There are a couple of areas we'll keep an eye one -- diaphragm and right adrenal gland -- but we've been keeping an eye on those since 2012. I forget what exactly is up with the diaphragm. I've known about the cyst on top of my adrenal since my first CT in 2012.

    So I'll be starting on Megace as soon as I can pick it up from the pharmacy. Doesn't sound like anyone here has been on it, as I didn't get a response back on my question about it. Very few side effects -- menopause type stuff. No drug interactions. Then a repeat scan in 3 months to see if anything changed.

    So overall, a pretty good Friday. May you all get some good news in your lives today, too.

      @JaneA, i am glad i was misreading!!!! Will be praying for continued good results!!!

      For me, it is a little scary not to have scans as often, even though it is way better for us to get less radiation.

      As far as getting results right away, i know my doctor is not going to like that one bit. I understand his perspective. But, i will be glad to get the results quickly and before i see him.

      Shelby, I am so glad to see some good news. Glad your wound is healing well too. I don't even know what "MyChart" is- I assume it your chart. LOL I know my doctors would not be loving it if this was a thing here. Maybe it is, but I just don't know it.

      Hello, my name is Jennifer. I am an Overthinker and Worrier. JUST the kind of person who doesn't need to see her results BEFORE the doctor sees them (or before I have a chance to see the doctor). I mean, I am definitely curious and want to see my results but I get crazy hyped up and start asking questions down to minute details that are not even things I probably need to know about. I think my oncologist may be thrilled that COVID kept me out of his office. He's very nice. Don't get me wrong, but I ask a LOT of questions and I feel sure some of them probably aren't terribly relevant.

      Anyhow, best wishes to everyone with pending test results and near dated appointments with your doctors. My next mammogram is scheduled for November 3rd. Yes, election day. They are both necessary evils and both must be done. I don't know which one scares me more right now. Don't want to make this political. I just don't like anything going on this year and having my scary test on the same day as scary voting... well. LOL

      I think I am going to early vote so I don't have to do both of them on the 3rd.
