I just had a CT scan at the Cancer Agency (I'm blogging this from one of their public computers).
My doctors will look at it to see how much my cancer has shrunk since we hit it with radiation and chemotherapy starting in April, and use the results to plan my surgery on July 26, as well as any followup chemo in the autumn. I'm supposed to get a copy of the data CD so I can look at the scan myself using some free software that can open DICOM files, but apparently that has to wait until my oncologist Dr. Kennecke looks at it next week.
That means I have to wait, which will be frustrating. So right now I'm going to the post office, and to buy some bagels.
