Another Scan

I really am disliking the scans. After the last interim CT/PET (where I left the contrast on the side of the road) they gave me the "new and improved" contrast for this interim CT scan. I could still taste the bitterness through the gatorade I mixed it in. And I'm finding it inevitably throws me off for most of the day. Chemo belly does NOT like to process any of it. Not to mention the IV iodine (?) they give you durring the scan. At least it wasn't a PET. 20 minutes of arm over head crucifixtion in a claustrophobic tube. Save that fun for when I'm done with treatments.

Hopefully get a good news call on Tuesday from my Nurse Practicioner (Stacey).

In the meantime I think I'm ready to get back on the bike this week. Put out a request for riding partners just now. Let's see if Josh will step up on this three day weekend (that's right, I'm calling you out!).

  1. Hello Chris,

    Thanks for your comraderie and for leaving me a note on my blog! I guess we were both going through similar "torture" today! Perhaps I got off easier than you did since I did not have to drink the barium/contrast stuff. I've only had to do that for one scan so far and that was way back (seems like it, though I guess its only been about 7 months) when I was first diagnosed. Anyway thanks for saying hello. I will put you on my blog list! Good luck with your treatment.
