Spoke too soon ☹️
Last week we celebrated our first full week of absolutely NO appointments with any medical people by going away in the Motorhome to Burrs Country Park just outside Bury
We had only been there 24 hrs when our ColoRectal Nurse rang .....
and said that Johns CEA Had gone up to 30 and could we go for a CT scan the next day at 08:10 I managed to persuade her to make it 11:30 as we definitely do not do anything at 08:10 except maybe go for a wee !
So now we are home Really fed up that our All Clear announcement was perhaps a little premature
The nurse said it was just a precaution and not to worry ...but it’s impossible not to feel anxious
Even though 30 is not very high and the CEA test is not very accurate anyway ...blah blah blah ! !
So I feel like we are back to square one ...completely in limbo till we hear the results
I think they will do the usual rigmarole of ...its not clear we need to do an MRI ...
SO We wait for that appointment go for the MRI ...Wait for the results..
Then get sent for the PET Scan ! ! etc etc
Lets just keep our fingers crossed that its nothing to worry about
Bl@@dy Scanxiety will we ever be rid of it !
