Double Reporting on CT Scan
What does it mean please? I’ve been waiting for my results, and when I rang my colorectal nurse Friday afternoon, she started to go through them, then said “oh no, it’s been double reported by an agency and a staff radiographer, so it’s really long! I’ll have to email it to the oncologist, and we’ll take it from there!” So I’ve got to wait again, argh!
My immediate thought was that it must be awful; that there must be lots of spread that needed to be checked.
Christian (my sensible husband), said it could just as easily be that nothing was seen, we know something’s there so it was double checked. Or just as easily, so many are routinely double checked!
I’ve been managing to control the anxiety by using @Bear G ‘s philosophy of “no bad scan news”, and also by imagining every possible scenario, then putting it away in a box in my head, but this waiting!!!
