So finally the doctor called, an hour later then said. He confirms the diagnosis. My abdominal scan didn’t show anything of interest. And my blood marks from the test last Friday confirm the seminoma diagnosis.
Big news is that treatment starts on Wednesday, not Thursday or Friday. That sucks, some how I wasn’t prepared for that. But then again, better earlier then later, it will all be over sooner.
My mood today isn’t that good. This Wednesday news didn’t help. Yet what was worse is that my CT scan didn’t work the first time around and I had to do it twice. We were there for 5 hours in total. Looking back 3 things bothered me:
- They didn’t tell me they had to do an infusion. I don’t like being injected any more. Especially if they don’t tell me before hand. I had enough surprises all ready lately, tell me whats coming up.
- Lying there in the scanner I noticed in their actions that something went wrong. But they didn’t tell me right away. I didn’t know if it was the procedure which went wrong or if the outcome was bad.
That was a stress moment. Hightend by the fact that the same radiologist came by who told me a week and a half a ago that there was some thing in my chest xray which started this journey. Anyway, the same guy said that he didn’t know what was going on…. Geeee that helps me NOT. After a bit a nice nurse told me me it was a procedure issue not me.
- The time it all took, that they in the end did 2 infusions and I had to drink the juckey stuff twice.
Its gonna be an interesting journey. Today was the first time my resiliance and patiece was tested. That will happen much more the coming months.
This afternoon or tomorrow morning a nurse will call with the details concerning me going into the hospital. In the meantime I will start getting more stuff for the HPP.
