Today marked 90 days post treatment and the results of yet another CT Scan. I admit that I had some concerns about the outcome of the scan, not because I’ve been feeling poorly but because I’m a worry wort. This morning before going to the hospital I was walking our greyhound Roo and seriously pondering what my response would be if a tumor showed up. Yeah I know as Bob Newhart would say, “Just STOP IT!”
Praise the Lord, the scan came back completely clear again. Even Dr. Pishvaian was ecstatic (well ecstatic for him) over the results. He does have some concern over my seeming hypotension – I get very red in the face and extremely dizzy if I bend over or do any strenuous lifting. I’ve had numerous tests to rule out cardiovascular issue which continues to have Dr. Pishvaian questioning whether the type of immunotherapy I received might not cause damage to the nervous system. Normally he would treat something like this with steroids which would hopefully reduce the affect of the immune system but since my immune system is doing some cancer killing magic, he’s recommended and I’ve heartily agreed to stay the course and put up with the ‘new normal’.
I’m now at the point where I only have to go in every 2 months to have a CT Scan and that’s pretty awesome!
