Scan update!

I keep forgetting to post the lung ct scan results.  I guess (thankfully) because it was “unremarkable”.  I figured it would be but you always have that little bit of doubt nibbling at the back of your mind.

It was interesting that it didn’t even mention other things seen on my abdominal CT Scans that show in my lung bases.  Perhaps because this one was completely without any contrast.  It did mention high dense material overlying the anterior surface of the liver.  I don’t know what that could be.  My doctor didn’t even call me with the results.  They were just posted to my patient portal so I couldn’t ask her.

I did get a pretty good laugh out of one thing!  After the above mentioned dense material on my liver, it said there was a calcification in the upper right hepatic lobe that could possibly represent shrapnel!  Um, shrapnel?  Really?  Maybe surgical clips?  Seriously, I did laugh out loud at that one!  Hey, if scans make you laugh, that is A-OK!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I’m thankful for you all and for my family and friends (and for still being here after 7 1/2 years with metastatic NET cancer).

    We’re going through scans and portals watching my dad’s condition. What a way to spend the holidays. I’m glad your results are “unremarkable” and I hope you find a way to feel better.
