And the results are in…

After a brief conversation this morning with Dr. Williams, my oncological surgeon, I can tell you that the Neck and Chest CT scan is NOT showing anything that one should be worried about. There is some decrease in secretion at the top of the esophagus, but Dr. Williams’ visual exam (with that damned scope thingee) showed nothing. The radiologist did point out a tiny granuloma, but indicated that it was likely age related, and not linked to the cancer, or anything else worth being concerned about.

Dr. Williams did ask about the cough that started this round of scans: is it worse? is it better? I told him that it is no worse, but I’m not sure if it has gotten any better. He offered me the option of the ‘wait-and-see’ approach, or the ‘call-the-pulmonary-guy’ approach. We joked a bit about ‘the happy wife means a happy life’ and I asked him to go ahead and call the pulmonary guy. G. would have been absolutely furious if she knew that I had turned down any sort of diagnostic.

While I had him on the phone, I asked the doctor to pull up the file on the leg x-ray that was done… and he did a quick look, and indicated that there was nothing there to be concerned about. I will be meeting with my GP on Monday next for an in depth review of that one.

We’re still good!! I’ve made it two years now.
