The last couple of days I have been experiencing the dreadful, every three months occurring scanxiety. I had my CT-scan on Monday and have anxiously been waiting to receive the results, and meet with my oncologist. This time I was utterly uncertain of what to expect, as I have been experiencing increasing stomach discomfort the last weeks. I have tried not to think of it, but that has been easier said than done.
The blood tests and scan results were excellent, with no signs of a cancer relapse! Knowing I am cancer free, is for sure fantastic news. The stomach discomfort is a consequence of the surgeries I have undergone. My bowels are still in a bit of turmoil and not fully back to the normal pace. What a relief! I am so happy that I do not need to go back to the hospital until the next planned check-up. Today I have been celebrating with a nice cup of coffee, and yes I have put the champagne in the fridge for tonight!
