Hi Pat,
I am not laughing you out of the room, but I am laughing...I will ask my onc. tomorrow if that is possible(the foot mets)  they can laugh at me all they want, I pay their house, car, yacht, and whatever else they indulge in...My pain is only in one leg (right)  seems to be in the thigh area and feels like it is burning and aching all at the same time and then poof it goes away..My right knee has decided to not bend all the way anymore..all these damn body parts think they can do whatever they want, I call BS on all of them..
 
I am feeling some anxiety about tomorrow appt. and I know I am not going to know anymore than I do now.  I am going to demand some kind of scan hopefully a pet...What prep do I need for a pet, bone scan, or ct?  I wont eat anything in the morning so maybe they can do it right away..I asked about this possibly being from the aromasin, but they said it is usually not on just one side.  I will let everyone know tomorrow what the latest is.  Thanks ladies.
 
To everyone waiting in the room with me, I hope all test come out  b9 or NED..
 
Hugs,

Susie you have to be on a no carb no sugar diet for at least 24 hours before a PET scan there is no prep for an MRI


I heard from my onc's nurse today.  MY PET looks normal  :)
I call back tomorrow to see if they have the MRI result. So far so good, now what are those lumps?  For now, they are nothing.  shoo.

Marianna - congratulations on your PET scan!!!  No better news than that, I think!!!   I am sending positive thoughts and prayers for the same with your MRI!!!!  Susie...I do, honestly, have the same thing in my right thigh....it sometimes goes numb, or the burning sensation as you say, or pins and needles, I think it all has to do with nerves.  I am anxious to hear your results before I mention it to my doctor.  It happens more if I am at the mall, walking around a lot.  I painted my den and kitchen, with sneakers on, (NO FLIP FLOPS!) and no problems at all!   I know that it could also be a sciatica problem going down from the back, via the nerve into the leg....good luck!!!!!

Marianna-  WOOO HOOO,  I want to be just like you...Please share NED with me...Well I guess the pet will be out tomorrow, I have been eating like a crazy....I can go with a bone scan...Is there any prep for a CT?  Pat, I will let you know what they say..It kind of eases my nerves to know that someone shares the same symptoms with me..I know we will all B9 fine....

I am enjoying reading all of your entries!!  I swear that any ache/pain or emotional ups/downs are considered "normal".  I guess that is a good thing?????  (We are discussing some of these on the "transitioning to survivorship" thread under "Returning to Normal" section.

My mammo went well...was read right away by the rad.  Said he would see me in 6 mos.  F/up with onc. is next Monday.  My mammo. office gives carnations to all the patients (donated by a local florist).  The tech picked 3 bunches for me...so I also walked away with a dozen carnations!  Yeah.
