On Thursday, I had a bone scan. This is not exactly the machine they used, but
similar. I didn't move, a part of the machine did. They said it took pictures above and below at the same time. The only weird part, was when the plates were about 3 inches from my face. I shut my eyes till it moved away. Once it got past my waist, they told me I could move my arms and head. I was trying to see the pictures then but they were almost over my shoulder.
They tape your feet together over your socks. Guess this is what I look like under all of the clothes, however, I am not and never have been this skinny. LOL. I am feeling just fine. They also called me from a lab in California to tell me they are doing a test from the tissue they removed. It will tell if cancer is likely to come back in ten years. My oncologist said she was going to do a gene test to help my family. I hope this was also that test. On the tenth, I go back and find out what my treatment will be. If after all this, she says I need Chemo, I will be ok with it.
At least I will know they really checked first. She did call to say I need to take vitamin D, my levels are down and I need 800 units a day.
Thanks to all of you again for caring and asking.
A Bone Scan (also known as radionuclide scan) can reveal if the cancer has spread ... machine that uses advanced x-ray technology to take pictures
