my dad wants me to get re-tested , to make sure it hasn't spread,,, that would be a PET scan , or a CT scan
the PET scan is a NO WAY EVER !!!
the CT scan , is also not as mild as most people think, and i'd have to take 2 different drugs before the scan, so it doesn't hurt me .. i am allergic to Iodine... yay..
here's what i am up against
iodine-based Contrast MaterialsMild reactions include:
- nausea and vomiting
- mild skin rash or hives
- severe skin rash or hives
- abnormal heart rhythms
- high or low blood pressure
- shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- difficulty breathing
- cardiac arrest
- swelling of the throat or other parts of the body
- profound low blood pressure
nice list eh?
i am allergic to iodine , and this test puts it in me .. eeek X 2.. i ended up in the hospital before , from Iodine Reaction,, ...................plate of shrimp ..
i had one ( CT ) in july , it didn't effect me like the pet scan, but my mind was super blown from the recent cancer diagnosis,, dang
bummer ,, personally ,, i want to be done with the cancer "doctors" ,, i don't ever want to see them again..
i feel great , i look great ( that's what everyone's telling me ) .. my tumor , which seemed to be a big deal,, is so close to being GONE...
more frustration , thanks CANCER , i've had it up to my neck with you !!
this kinda knocked the nice showbiz buzz i had from tonight's show...
oh well,, more tomorrow
