Are you KIDDING ME?
More tests on the horizon for ol' Shelldogg. Not outta the woods yet.
Yes, the colonoscopy showed "all normal", but since the PET scan showed "something", they are now going to really dig in and see if they can find and identify that elusive "something".
SO! It's another fun colon procedure for me this Thursday. I will have a flexible sigmoidoscopy and a endoscopic ultrasound. In this procedure, they send out ultrasonic waves to try to find the problem area. If they find a problem area, they will take a biopsy. Then we'll know what it is. It could just be a garden variety infection. It could be a tumor (though that would be "unusual", given that the chemo has melted away all my other cancer...so why would there be this one hold-out spot?).It could be something else.
In any case, I am nervous. Because once again, I have to wait for test results, and so much is at stake once you've been diagnosed with cancer. Any test like this makes you nervous. You try to remain positive, but your mind does tend to wander...
Pending the results of this, I may or may not have chemo on Friday.
p.s.- Today, Neil and I celebrate 7 years of wedded bliss.
