I had my 6 month PET scan last Tuesday. I get my results on 9/3/15. It's not exactly 6 months since I went into remission but I am of the belief that my oncologist knows what he is doing so I do what I am told. If he says, "Scan" then I go have a scan. If he said, "Jump off a tall building", I would honestly give it some thought.
He's been there before. He has seen many sick patients; some older than me, some younger. Some in better overall health than me, some worse. The fact of the matter is; he put me at ease the instant met him so he calls the shots in my treatment and care.
That's a big deal coming from me because I like to be in control and I'll be honest, I gave up control last winter. I put my type A personality on the shelf...and it WORKED. I am well. I am healthy and I am gaining my strength back. I took a restorative yoga class yesterday and left it feeling energized. I am setting goals for my future. My hair is requiring about 45 seconds of work after a shower. It's the little things these days that make me happy.
