I went to take a CT scan this Sunday afternoon. It has been 4 months since the last CT and this is the 2nd CT after I started T-DM1 (Kadcyla).
After the cancer metastasized, the interval of the scan became every 2 months from 3 months, but as I went into remission 14 months ago, the interval became 3 months again, and now it has expanded even more.
Though I have still some side-effects such as muscle pain, cramps, stiffness, tingling, and numbness, I’ve been doing pretty well and enjoying the remission.
Some people take a PET or bone scan as well trying not to miss daunting cancer as much as possible, but even that combination is not perfect. In my case, I am using only CT scans to compare.
It will take 4-5 days to get the result. I have to be patient and pray for the good result so that I can renew the record of the remission again!
