CT Scan Clear

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.
