This was my first full CT Scan since the joys of Chemo & Radio Therapy earlier in the year!

Scans come with their own mix of anticipation and dread! I dubbed it ‘Scanziety’ some 12 or 13 years ago when I first started down this cancer route!

Of course you want the scan but naturally one fears bad news and there is a constant feeling that perhaps ignorance is bliss – though to be honest I find underastanding EXACTLY where I stand and the depth of the ordure gives me an understanding of just how grim is the battle ahead at this stage and thus I ‘feel’ I have a greater ability to deal with it!

Although I was due at 14:30hrs. at Velindre for my appointment I arrived at 13:35hrs. as I thought I might be down for ‘bloods’ as well and hoped to do that first as there is quite a bit going on at home. Seems they don’t want my blood this time! So I sauntered around to Radiology to check in before going for a coffee in the canteen.

Good news ‘can I do you now sir?’ and I was in and changed into one of those idiotic gowns in minutes – drink another pint of water quick stab to put a cannella in and then a top up of iodine to improve disclosure on the scan.

10 minutes later and I’m free to go and it isn’t quite 14:00hrs!

Now for ‘Super Scanziety as we wait for the results on Friday!

Fingers crossed!
