This is just a big grinny one to say I got my blood test and CT scan results this morning and all is still well as far as my oncologist is concerned. I don't want this to sound smug or gloaty so I'll temper it with a bit of past history;
My first ever set of post-treatment tests showed an inflammation of the bladder for which I was referred to a urologist. A worrying time but it turned out just to be a simple urinary infection and nothing more sinister.
My second set of tests indicated something odd going on with my liver and so I was referred for an ultrasound exam. That was really scary but it too turned out to be nothing of any concern.
My third set of tests was my first ever resounding all-clear and I hit the shops big time! :-)
My fourth set of tests revealed a high blood sugar level which had me referred to a diabetician. For a while it looked as though I was on a slow but steady inexorable route to diabetes.
From then I arranged my diabetician's appointments to coincide with my oncology appointments because they both require a significant journey from my home on a small island. Six months ago my oncology results were clear and my blood sugar seemed to be regulating itself rather better than before.
And this time around, whilst my oncologist is happy, my diabetician believes that I have now developed diabetes proper. I will have to return to see him next week but I am not as upset by this result as I would have been were they the other way around.
Interesting the curved balls life throws at us isn't it :-)
Go well everyone.
Lots of love
