I'm taking my goldfish Roger

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.

Haha :D. Good luck! Hope it all went well (I'm making a wild assumption here that you see this comment after the scan).

Spacecake said...

I know, wishing you luck afterwards doesn't really seem logical, but can we ignore that fact now?

Don't answer that. Let's all just pretend we're pancakes.

No luck needed. Not only will they find no cancer, they will discover your dink has responded to the radiation by doubling in size.

Crystal said...

your cancer was on its way down and then it saw your big meat dink and said "abort! abort!"

and i am sure the chemo helped a little too.

Hope the scan is all clear, too. Good luck!

Just a pointer: You might want to refer to your penis by another name. When I hear "dink" I automatically think "dinky". Not a good word to relate to that part of the body. ha!

Jules~ My penis only makes private appearances. Sorry.

Sun~ Thanks times the same amount!

Nessa~ And we all know that clear innards make great chitlans!

Diane~ Thanks!

Spacecake~ I like pancakes and I did read it after the scan.

RZV~ I always wondered what it would be like to be Long Dong Silver/Spiderman.

Crystal~ Ha! You said "big meat dink". I want a full report of your trip to England, ok?

O-Girl~ Well, it is small until you get it angry. Just like Bruce Banner says, "You don't want to see me angry."

Celeste~ I picked up the term "dink" from my grandpa (RIP). You can blame him. Are you feeling any better?

Keshi~ You know what makes me feel good, don't you?
