I went for my monthly visit to both my oncologists (breast and ovarian) a couple of weeks ago. I had a cat scan prior to that appointment. Everything was clear except for one prevascular node which had enlarged ever so slightly (2mm). My one doctor said we could monitor and do CT scan in 3 months or make a special request for a PET scan. I was thinking I would wait for a repeat CT but my one oncologist thought I should do the PET scan. Well I agreed and I got a call today that my appointment has been scheduled for October 17th. I am feeling very anxious about getting the results of this test. I know that worrying about it won’t change the outcome but..... I am really starting to feel well and more like myself after my year and a half of diagnoses, tests, surgery, chemo, radiation and pulmonary embolisms. Does the anxiety ever go away in regards to tests? I swear the anxiety might be the thing that gets me and not the cancer. Heavy sigh.
