Today I am going in for a PET scan. Well, it's actually the night before but you will all be reading this post on the day of the scan. If you don't know what a PET scan is go here. Isn't learning fun?
I had one of these when I first got diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma Cancer. I got to see my insides in various color sections. The detail was amazing. I also got to see my cancer. It looked like I was storing a bag of golf balls in my body from the base of my neck down to my diaphragm. This time around I am hoping that the only thing I will see will be a normal looking lymph system.
My mother was with me the time I saw the first one. When the doctors dialed through the scan my penis was visible. It looked like a meat penis, but it was still there. I exclaimed, "Don't look down there mom, you can see my dink." She replied, "It's not like I haven't seen it before." I countered, "Yeah, but it's all grown up now." That was a good laugh.
Anyway, wish me luck. I won't find out the results until I meet my radiation oncologist on Tuesday. From there I will know what my radiation treatments will be. Fun stuff.
You all have a kickass day.
