Due to the reaction of my body to the BCG, the Urologist ceased all further treatment.
I was then booked in for a full-body CT scan ust to check that the cancer hadn’t spread to any other organs in my stomach or chest.
Fortunately, the results of that scan were good and there had been no spread.
This was not an especially daunting experience, as I have had many CT scans, MRIs and PET Scans over my lifetime.
I did learn a new word from someone in one of the many Facebook cancer groups I am in. Apparently “scanxiety” is a legitimate word to describe the anxiety not just of having the procedure, but also of the anxiety experienced while awaiting results.
The stress can be very overwhelming, especially when you don’t know what the results might show.
