Today is the day I have been impatiently waiting for. It is PET scan day! Let me tell you, scanxiety is a real thing! Starting on December 23rd, or Christmas Eve Eve as I've been calling it, I started having pain in my right hip. It has been persistent, no matter which type of shoes I'm wearing and what my activity level is like. As much as I hate it, having cancer makes you hyper-aware of your body and in turn causes your mind to determine that there must be more cancer when something seems out of sorts. I know I had a spot on my right hip at the last scan, crossing my fingers that this hip pain is just a coincidence.
Scan day, scan day, scan day! I am so thankful that today is PET scan day and I will soon get the results to see if the Avastin is doing its job and keeping the cancer in check! Today is the day, however, I won't see my oncologist until Monday. I'm hoping to be able and get some information via phone tomorrow but I'm not sure if I will be able to. So, over the next few days I will be trying to subdue my scanxiety while I wait for results by doing other things. It is, after all, still my vacation time!
