First post chemo tests

It is difficult to explain how stressful it is going for all these tests. I thought I was fairly in control until I was lying on the CT scan table waiting for the doctor. Those 15 minutes of waiting were just the worst - all alone in a medical gown with a small sheet to keep me warm. The actual scan and X-rays were done very promptly and I did not have to wait too long for the medical report. In essence the report says “no evidence of metastatic disease” which means no tumours found. Good news! Tomorrow I go to have blood drawn for the various tests on cell counts, tumour marker and kidney/liver functioning and then I see Dr L on Thursday morning. She called this morning to reschedule. Must mention that I have regained all the weight I had lost!
