I received a call this morning from the PET scan folks, and my scan is tomorrow August 25th at 10:45 a.m. Shortly after that the oncologist’s office called and cancelled tomorrows visit since the PET scan results won’t be available that quickly and re-scheduled for September 1.
Received a call this morning to inform me that the PET scanner is broken and I won’t be getting my scan as planned for tomorrow, August 20th. 🙁
This is both frustrating and upsetting as this means that I won’t officially know the status of the cancer and the meeting on August 25th with the oncologist will only be about my immunization schedule and not a review of the planned PET scan.
There is no ETA for a fix of the PET scanner and I’m now waiting for a phone call to get the scan re-scheduled.
I had a touch base with CancerCare today and while I continue to feel well and get stronger I was disappointed by the numbers.
Blood testing was scheduled for 8:45 and for what ever reason I had to wait quite a while before I was called in. Once in the chair the blood draw only took a few minutes and then I checked in to see the doctor.
After waiting over 1 hour I checked with the desk again. I think I some how got lost in the process but was called in very shortly after I asked about what was happening. I had been expecting to see the oncologist physician assistant but my assigned nurse handled the visit. Blood pressure and a few “how are you doing” question and she’s done. She explains the blood testing results and this is the disappointing part.
These numbers are supposed to be going up! They are currently quite a bit lower than “normal” and I had expected better progress 🙁
The nurse says they can bounce up and down. Next time they better bounce “up” if they know what’s good for them!
