    Oh the PAIN! The Agony! Will I survive?

    Well, it's that time again for checkups. And I'm getting rechecked for both my Thyroid Cancer as well as my Cancer De Butt.

    So many blood tests, injections, and even an IV for my CT with contrast.

    Next 2 weeks

    Four (4) blood draws
    3 Injections
    Swallowing a radioactive pill
    IV

    Then you have to add in my extreme case of Scanxeity

    I'm two (2) years out from the butt cancer and one (1) year for the Thyroid.

    Darn! Wasting all of my time here posting this message when I could be using the same time worrying. I need to focus!!

      Buckeye Shelby the 2016 Presidential Race is indeed scarier than scans. In fact when I was told I would probably live to vote in the 2016 Elections it kinda put a damper on the good news.
