Re: SCANXIETY!!

Thanks for your messages, so nice to feel cared for. Hubby is being wonderful.
Off to Newbury races today with friends - a good distraction - and hoping my luck will turn with a few bets on the horses and a glass of bubbly X

Re: SCANXIETY!!

Sorry to hear you didn't get the news you wanted. It's so frustrating, especially when you think treatment is working. Let's hope Eribulin does the trick. I found it very manageable xxx

Re: SCANXIETY!!

My turn to share news, but not so good alas.

Was due a CT scan soon, but had pneumonia 2 weeks ago so had a CT scan at the time and thought they would re scan me in a month as it would look messy cos of the pneumonia. (Not sure why I thought that!).

 

So, had onc appt yesterday and was expecting just a catch up and to book a CT. Infact it was a results meeting.. Know I have extensive bones mets but lung mets are now definitely evident, (they've been wondering for months due to breathlessness but no signs on scans) and because of progression the paclitaxel I've been on for 3 months isn't working so coming off that and starting on Erubilin chemo next.

 

So sadly I can't joins the Stable Mable club, first time I've felt rather down and upset by it all. Strangely I've been feeling better and thinking it must be working. Just shows ya... How you feel doesn't necessarily concur with how you are.

Re: SCANXIETY!!

Really happy for you Barton. Bone mets are strange things aren't they. They seem to cause pain even when they are stable or improving. Now relax and enjoy yourself. xxx

Re: SCANXIETY!!

Well, thank you all so very much for all your support! I am VERY pleased to be able to say that I have joined the Stable Mable club! Not what I was expecting (the worst, obviously! as we all do Smiley Frustrated), but so, so relieved. The actual results were that my lymph nodes have shrunk slightly and my bone mets are stable.

 

Carolyn - you owe me a McDonalds!

Re: SCANXIETY!!

Hi Barton,
I really hope everything goes well for you tomorrow. I had quite a lot of hipe, spine and shoulder pain and was really worried before my last two scans and both turned out well. Hoping the same for you. I'm sending all my positive vibes.
Bonariensis, hope your bone results are as good as your last (ct?) results. Best wishes. xxx

Re: SCANXIETY!!

Hi Barton, sending all my best wishes to you for tomorrow, try not to let your pain play with your imagination......easier said than done! I have noticed a pattern with us boney ladies, when we get increased pain it is usually in our hip?? Maybe it's because it's in a weight bearing area I don't know? 

Hugs Janette xxxx

Re: SCANXIETY!!

Well, it's my turn to ask for some good wishes from you all - I go for the results of my latest CT scan tomorrow, and am already thinking the worst! Have been coughing rather a lot (hoping it's chemo cough, not the more worrying alternative!), and have had some bone pain in my left hip. I know every single tiny weeny pain looms large in all our minds, and I'm trying to tell myself that I am imagining things, but it's really hard.

 

Hugs to all. Barton.x
