So, tomorrow is the day!

Tuesday, December 01, 2009

Tomorrow is the day. I have an appointment with my oncologist to see how my bone scan and PET/CT scans went last week. The good news is that I haven't heard from her. When she found something wrong in my scans in July (when I was supposed to have surgery), she literally called me on her cell phone from her vacation. I'm cautiously optimistic that the scans are okay.

Cautiously optimistic...

I haven't been on Spark much because of the neuropathy in my fingers from the chemo. My fingers feel like lead sometimes and it is hard to type as quickly and accurately as I am used to typing. Also, I haven't been too proud of my weightloss tracker. The goal during chemo was to MAINTAIN my weight -- not gain or lose. Of course, my oncologist and primary care physician are concerned. I've been trying to maintain weight by drinking Ensure and eating snacks (healthy snacks, of course), but even my new jeans are getting loose. I need to try harder.

I'm nervous about the appointment tomorrow, but it is all part of the process. Hopefully, the process will move on. Being stalled in chemo mode has really taken its toll on me.

    I am crossing everything for you for a good result tomorrow!! I think if there was anything else new, then you would have been called by now...No news is good news emoticon is what I'm hoping for you...let me know how it goes! As for the weight loss, it's not a good way to lose it, but I think in the long run it will help you meet the rest of your exercise goals..keeping you in my thoughts and prayers, Eunice :) emoticon

    emoticon Keeping you in my prayers, and hoping that the fact you haven't heard about the test results yet means it good news!

    I hope you have the very best news possible. I, too, have neuropathy and while it's been annoying it hasn't progressed or caused anything more than some dropsies and such. It comes and goes, too. Does yours stay the same or does it vary?

    I'll be thinking of you tomorrow but I agree, no news from an oncologist is generally good news. so I think you need to start planning your celebratory event for tomorrow night. And when it happens, we want pictures and a fun blog!
