Ok, since I was none to pleased with the errors and contradictions I found in my Pet Scan report and summary, I contacted the Radiology Department on Friday, to get to the bottom of this...If any treatment is to be based on what that report stated then they better have the right information! They had my BC in my right breast...WRONG it was the left one although the new tumor is in the right lung, they also had a CT comparison date of January 32, 2007......I must have not gotten that memo on January's extra day this year. I was told by the Radiology Dept to call my Oncologist who ordered the test go over the discrepancies and have the Doctor reorder an amended report...I am only a layman in reading these reports what else was incorrect that I DIDN'T catch??
I also asked that as soon as the Pathology report was available on my Lung Biopsy that I start treatment immediately, whatever that might be. I was told my Onc will be on vacation all next week....Ok, I'm not waiting can I see an associate of his...yes I can.....so the report is due back no later than Wednesday, so Thursday I have an appointment at 11:00 a.m. Chemo could be re- started that same day....or they may want to schedule surgery and cut out the tumor and I am sure radiation is in my future this time around...I was told that even though my Onc would be on vacation, his associates who will be dealing with me then will all be unanimous in the correct treatment plan for me this time around....again I wish I could fast forward to the healing part...I'm not looking forward to chemo again and if it's going to be even longer than before ( 8 treatments = 4 months ) I think I will break down and cry....it seemed the longer I was into chemo the harder it was on me emotionally and physically...."CURE" is such a beautiful word.....until then all I have is "HOPE."
I am just starting to lose my fingernails from my first attempt at kicking this cancer butt...can't really feel too much discomfort in that just yet thanks to the Peripheral Neuropathy (numbness in fingers and my toes) another blessing in disguise of sorts. So here I am back at square one getting ready to do it all over again....giving up is not an option........OOOO-RAAAH!
