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!
