(*~*) disposable gown and knickers?
Good thing it was warm in there. I don't fancy freezing my nipples off.
AND the table I had to lie on was nicely padded with a thin, sheet covered mattress.
I told you all yesterday about how the scan went, today I was back at the clinic to get the results from Dr L.
He showed me the report sheet which said there was nothing visibly wrong with either kidney, not with the bladder either.
Then he said sometimes there can be tiny, tiny lesions that don't get picked up on these CT scans and he'd like me to have a cystology exam, just to be sure.
Just to be on the safe side.
Lesions?? That's the word they use when they speak of cancer! He did say any with unexplained bleeding in a person my age, cancer is one of the first things they think of.
That's why they do so much testing immediately.
There is no point in putting off testing and finding out later that it should have been done.
I know this already. I put off having a pap smear for years, only to find that when I finally got around to it, I was already in trouble enough to need a hysterectomy. (1990) I didn't have cancer then, but the fast changing, widespread lesions were just a step away.
I got lucky!
So I'll go back to Dr L next Monday with another urine sample and hear all about how, where and when to have this cystology exam.
He asked if I had private hospital insurance and I do, thank you very much K.
So it will be soonish, rather than having my name added to a long waiting list somewhere.
life is fun isn't it?
