I had my latest CT scan early Monday morning. In the past, I usually have received the results the same day, even if a bit late. Not this time, despite an email request to my oncologist. Of course, this only makes my mind go into overdrive, worrying about what the silence actually means. I have an appointment on Thursday preparatory to beginning chemo again (remember 3 weeks on, 1 week off), so I am sure that I will learn the results then. However, I'd prefer to know beforehand so I don't burst into tears at the doctor's office, if the news is bad. Just hate to display emotion in that context.
postscript: two of the tumors have grown from October. The increase is "not dramatic" but the radiologists are convinced that there is growth. Will learn tomorrow what the options are.
