'Whenever a doctor cannot do good, he must be kept from doing harm'
Regular readers of Indigo Dreaming would be aware that 'Dr Amazing' saw me on Wednesday of last week. Friday I received a phone call informing me of today's PET Scan appointment.
Being only short notice, the instructions for the scan had been given verbally. Haydn had written them on the back of a newspaper that went into the recycling bin the following day. As he had a 10.45am doctor's appointment himself, he dropped me at the hospital and went on his way. Knowing that I had to fast for six hours I was suspicious when Haydn said that he had been told I could drink tea, coffee and water. Before ordering my cappuccino I thought it wise to check with Nuclear Medicine. I was disappointed to learn that my cappuccino was on hold until the completion of my test which would be well after 3pm.
Staff were wonderful as usual! The nurse did weight and height before inserting the cannula. She then called the doctor who would ask me the routine questions. I mentioned that I had a clavicular lesion which appeared to be something 'different.' She was happy to have a look. I felt empowered when she asked me if it was radiation necrosis. I believe it was confirmation of what I had always suspected, in spite of the Radiation Oncologist being in denial.. The problem for me now is that I have no idea of where to from here. Tonight I asked the question of Professor 'Google' in the hope of finding answers to what appear to be unanswerable questions.
My understanding is that 'Dr Amazing' will have results by Wednesday.
