Uncertainty

Wow it's been a year!! I forgot about this blog! haha old chemo brain coming back! Anyways, alot to tell but basically right now I'm going through a bit of a tough time. Had a scan and it looks like it's possibly pnuemonia but won't be able to fully tell till April 1st so I'll update this then! I am over 4 years in remission so this better not be a reoccurance! The uncertainty is definately getting the best of me! Thankfully, all doctors say it looks like an infection, but once you've been screwed by cancer it's hard to not go to the worse place in your mind because you've been to the worst place before and know it's possible. To be continued.....

Hi there. We just had scanxiety over my husband's PET where a spot lit up. He is only 1 year out from a stem cell transplant and has relapsed many times. Like you, we had to wait to find out if this spot was an infection or lymphoma. Turned out to be just an infection. I know how hard it can be to wait for results, but rest a bit easier knowing that sometimes those unclear scans turn out to be nothing.

Best of luck,
Andrea
