The result of the CT scan I took on the 28th of December finally came back.
” The CT scan shows improvement in the previous findings,” and ” No other concerning finds for cancer progression.”
I was so relieved. Yet, the pain under my swollen arm by lymphedema has been getting intense since our family trip last October. I first thought that lymphedema was getting worse, but now the pain became so bad as if a muscle were torn or a bone were broken that I was worried about the CT result. As the CT result was “stable”, I now wonder if cancer has spread into bones.
Thanking my oncologist who e-mailed the result , I asked if I should have a bone scan next. She answered that I should start from taking an x-ray. Will an x-ray detect cancer? I wonder, but maybe a bone scan needs some intervals from a CT scan.
I have to pass one more hurdle to cross out the concern completely.
