Additionally, a read of last week's CAT scan from my ER admit shows spots on the liver and in several lymph nodes. While these could be imaging artefacts, or have some other significance, liver and lymph are the two metastasis pathways for colon cancer. My screening appointment tomorrow has been converted to a PET scan in an attempt to highlight potential tumor activity in those areas. Will know more from the PET scan over the weekend or early next week.
As my doctor says, this is an ambiguous result, not a negative one. Nonetheless, the Fear is making a roaring comeback in my mind. I'm growing monsters in my gut again.
calendula_witch is being magnificent. So are the_child and Mother of the Child. I just don't want to go further down this road. I'm scared and angry, and tired of being afraid.
