Good news! Good news! I have just returned from the oncologist where I was told that last week’s scans show me, once again, to be completely free of cancer.
On my last blog, I was worrying about the return of the cough. I immediately scheduled an appointment with my lung doctor, who changed one of my medications. Simbicort has diminished my coughing greatly and this last week I have been breathing better and better. I was even out on my bike one afternoon.
At the same time, the oncologist scheduled the two scans, a PT/CAT scan of the full body and an MRI of the brain and those were the results read to me today.
But with each rainbow comes a little rain. On Thursday I had a dentist appointment and he uttered the two most hated and feared words in my universe: ROOT CANAL.
So here we are. Delighted to be officially cancer free again, crushed to have to face the root canal.
