I had a CT scan on Tuesday. It wasn't pleasant. In fact it was one of the most uncomfortable experiences that I've had since all this started. Okay it's nothing compared to lung surgery, but it wasn't fun. It's the barium... this thick acidic liquid that you have to drink, drink, drink, and drink some more. It does a number on your innards. Plus there's the IV and pants removal.
I suppose it was worth it though. This test told my Oncologist who then told me that there was no sign of cancer. My organs are normal. No tumors, all clear. Cancerless.
Obviously this is good news. I don't need another test for 6 months and I can start to plan ahead a little bit. Now I continue to heal from the chemotherapy and the surgery, start back to work on Monday, and start living a little.
I have 5 years to go, but this is the best way to begin.
