Scan results are....
I know I have not been on the radar for a couple weeks and I have lots to talk about, but the thing most people want to do is, "What the frick were your scan results?!??!" I got them today. I met with my Cyberknife Dr. and then I saw Hank. Well, my scan was not perfect, but darn close and NO CHEMO. The two spots that they worked on in November are doing nicely. Cyberknife doc very happy. Hank very happy. BUT, there is a new spot. BUT, they think they can get it with a procedure that is done on the same path as Cyberknife, but a bit quicker. Remember back to the end of October when they placed my markers for my lung tumor in the muscles outside of my lung? Well, this procedure, is a larger needle to the tumor and then they either freeze or heat it up to lethal temperatures killing it immediately. BOO YAA! The doc that placed my original markers will be doing this procedure also. He called this afternoon believing that he would have a very good chance of success, but explained that he will most likely not get the margin that he wanted on the side of the tumor next to my heart. Little does he know all my drama about vaginal leakage and margins during my tumor removal down south! So, I am like, "Gotcha. I understand that part." as I am taking a helicopter out of Mia hair. I will probably have to be in the hospital overnight without complications and a few nights with (chest tubes, bleeding, and such). I was like, "Okay....sounds right....gotcha......sound good......" I must have sounded bored, because he was like, "Are you sure you don't have any other questions or concerns?" I said "Nope, I do want you say. You and your group have given me almost six years. So, you say it, I do it." It is so cute because this doc HATES compliments, so I give them to him. It is kinda mean I think, but it is just precious when he goes, "Uh, well, okay.....uh, I think.....yes, I think....that is it.....you will call me with questions, yes?" "Yes, of course. Have a great day!" So, back to insurance and all that has to bring. I figure we got two weeks of that and it will be in March sometime. EXHALE. Yeah. YEAH ME. Now, to homework! Happy Monday, Ang
