Tuesday… Happy 21st..

PET scan! I was somewhat surprised to get a text message in a meeting yesterday to say that St Thomas’s had phoned to see if I was available for a PET scan today at 1:40pm. I knew that one had been ordered (as I said in the post after the last visit) but I was expecting it at the end of October or early November! So it was a quick trip to work this morning to re-arrange my diary and then it was up to London again.

The PET scan itself was much as before, a minor change in procedure in administering the tracer (to reduce the exposure to the staff) but otherwise much the same. I did reflect that I would like to meet the designer of hospital gowns, so I could shake him warmly by the throat, but I think that whenever I have to put one on!

After the scan I called in to see Margaret, the unit director, but sadly Sally, the radiologist, was out (I did look for you, Sally). It was then a quick walk to Waterloo and the train back home.

I’m not sure when I will get the results – my next check-up is in October, but I’m sure I will hear if there is anything sinister!

So with a few digits crossed – Onwards and Upwards!
