PET Scan Today

The not very eventful PET scan is over. Woo-hoo!

It was a long and painless test. During this test I get my shot of iodine & sugar solution then I sit in a recliner located in a 10 foot by 6 foot lead lined room for an hour until I am “ready”. Once I am “ready” the actual test is like a typical CT scan.  I lay perfectly still on a small medical bench that runs me through a tube for 15 mins or so while it takes pictures of my insides.  I have no problems with claustrophobia (or any phobias) so this test does not bother me.

I will patiently wait for the restults on the 20th when I visit with Dr Wynne.  

Dr Wynne is my young, east coast hip, stand-off-ish radiation oncologist who also happens to be the head of the department.  During my nearly 7.5-weeks of radiation treatment I met with him every Wednesday.  At each appointment my goal was to make him laugh- I felt he needed it.  (Yes, I was successful!)  

I’m not quite sure if, in my current state of being, I have what it takes to make Dr Wynne laugh or even crack a smile!  …I have just found a good reason to rapidly heal over the next 8-days.  Keep the good stuff coming my way- I’m going to need it!
