Yipeee! CT Scan of Thorax Abdomen and Pelvis with Contrast tomorrow night !

Hi All

Well the day is almost here and my 3rd CT scan is happening at 6.40pm tomorrow!

Like most of us know its then the long wait for results and mine is to be on 7th of January when I see my consultant again. However there was talk of a Liver biopsy and I'm not sure when this procedure is to happen, could it be before or after I've seen my consultant ?

Oh brief update on my sky diving funding raising front ! I've now hit an amazing figure with gift aid and the £50 cheque from the lovely Welsh couple £1861.16 ! So thank you to those who have donated !

May I wish you all a pleasant Monday 25th of November

Love Shropshire Lassie ❤

Let’s hope they say you’re “good to go” 👍 - if you hear nothing before that it’s probably good news. 🤞.

Good stuff re fundraising- nearly at that magic mark 💵💵.

Yes, it's so great on the funds raising front and I know there's more funds coming in, so fingers crossed on smashing the 2k target ! 🤩

Yes fingers crossed on the 'Good to Go front'

Cheers Miles x

Hi,

What great news regarding your leap into the wild blue yonder!'

Good luck with your CT scan Mon!

Wow, that is both a late hour to have one [although I did have an MRI around that time of nite which surprised me] and a very long wait to hear your results, at least it would be for us in the US. I would imagine the CT scan would be helpful for your doctor - maybe he will be using it to decide on a whether to do a biopsy or not, so I hope it goes whatever way you would prefer.

Again, best of luck tomorrow!

Hi Mary

Cheers for message! Like you I've already undergone through loads of tests, MRI CT, fibroscan and numerous ultrasounds. Camera up and and camera down too🤣🤣. Certain things did come to light which have been treated but my consultant is still investigating as to why my bloods and symptoms keep flaring up from out of the blue! There have been numerous suggestions from my consultant , GP and Nursing specialist that at one point I could possibly have PBC or Sarcoid but I'm not sure anymore! It's now wait and see game!

You maybe right on my consultant waiting for CT Scan results before making that final decision on whether the biopsy is necessary! However I will get to know if existing my small growths in both lungs have changed plus I have numerous cysts in both kidneys, so I'll

get to hear if they've grown or not sonits all worth while.

Bye for now and have a good Monday!

Love Trish ❤

It was meant to be a joke Trish. Failed again then - I don’t know - honestly! 🙂. And I thought you are supposed to get my SOH!!! 😀

in reply to ThreeSmiles

Blummin heck Miles give me a weee break! Maybe my SOH did fail which could be down to my teacher going into retirement🤣🤣🤣! Does anyone want the job? I pay well? 😂😂😂

LOL - feel free to remind me!

mncold in reply to ThreeSmiles

Well, dang it!

I would say I'd remember this for next time - but I'd be lying.

I'm lucky I can remember there is an ocean between us and heaven forbid if you ask me which ocean -I don't know why it is harder for me to remember that now that we moved to Minnesota - I think [I'm pretty sure??] I remembered it was the Atlantic when I lived in Maine - strangely I think it was because we saw lots of Canadian license plates there. And I can't explain why the two are connected in my head - just don't ever ask my husband as he just gives me the look & sighs when ever geography comes up.

Miles, I think you're related to my hubby, he can also be a pedantic PITA - so I'm used to it and only get irritated when it is him or the kids LOL.

Hubby is doing fairly well - had his 2nd treatment of chemo last wednesday and his next this coming wed -the day I, hopefully, get rid of my poo pouch. We'll drive in together & he'll sit with me for a while then off to get his chemo [hopefully his bloods will be good] then down the hall & another hall & then the elevator & then ? and be with me a while & then either have Turkey as it is on Thanksgiving or head home in the alleged snow. Our youngest will be having Thanksgiving with his brother & family, they came down yesterday & brought turkey day to celebrate it & hubby's birthday at the same time LOL. His wife is now expecting their 3rd girl come May.

Thank you for all your good wishes & probably more info than you wanted or needed LOL.

Wishing you the best,

Mary

Right - boo hoo - just lost a big long reply 😕 so I shall try and repeat - boo hoo hoo.

Hi Mary again 🙂

Hope when you read this you have had a good sleep 👍.

It is still the Atlantic and hasn’t swapped with the Pacific despite your move from Maine - I’m sure you’ll be pleased to hear that 🙂👍.

I’m glad you’re used to PITAs! I do try not to be 😕 - frequently get told off by; No.1 - daughter and No. 2 wife - obviously 🙂.

You sound like you’ve got a mega busy day on Wednesday! Chemo - thankfully no experience but it is very debilitating from what I’ve read? Hope you get your pouch sorted. Now don’t get lost in the Hospital, will you! Hope you can remember your left from your right 😀. Ohh I’m sooo rude!

Do you live on Norfolk Island then.? I never knew Thanksgiving day varies in America depending on the state! I had to Wiki it!!

Happy birthday to hubby on Wednesday and happy thanksgiving to you, hubby and family - hope you have a great time, within the bounds of Hospital things....

And hope it doesn’t snow, or at least not too much. I’m going to look on the weather program now 🙂 - well on Wednesday I mean!

Miles

Please pass on my birthday greetings to your hubby too!

Take care my friend

Loads of love Trishy 🤗🤗🤗.... 3 hugs xxx

Well Mary,

Annie is in Seattle now, and then Maui from tomorrow for a week, so I have to be on the ball when it comes to Facetiming her.

Don't want to wake her up in the night, but then she has done that to me🤣🤣🤣, I wasn't best pleased.

Hi Mary

Why is your thanksgiving on Wednesday- thought it was normally Thursday? Or have I read your post wrong?

Trish hopefully it won’t be too long for the biopsy. I think this should have been done a long time ago, I can’t understand why they’ve been dragging their heels to do it.

Skydive D day is almost upon you now. My god missus, you’re the bravest little dynamo I know! Well done on the amount you’ve raised, that’s a fantastic amount. I’m so proud to be your friend my lovely.

Hi Trish,

Hope the CT goes OK....I'll keep everything crossed for you 🤞🤞🤞🙏🙏🙏

The waiting for results is always the worst part.

At least with my gastroscopy on the 16th Dec, I'll get the results there and then.....I should bloody well think so.....it's the least they can do for all that discomfort😁😁😁. Hope I don't swallow the mouth gag🤣🤣🤣

Great news on the fund raising....so near the 2K 👍👍👍

David

David

I'm almost 100 per cent sure you'll get your gastro results on the day as I have on two occasions 👍so good luck again for the 16th !

Thanks for 🤞🙏

Oh yes I will Trish.

I can't wait to talk with the Gastro Lady Doc about suitable, friendly pain relief for a bu99ered liver.

Nicely put👍

Hi

Wishing you all the best for your scan tomorrow, I would have thought your biopsy would be before you see your consultant. Well done on the sky dive donations, that's fantastic!! Love and hugs Lynne xxxx

in reply to

Thank you Lynne for your lovely message!

If a biopsy is to happen let it be before the 7th of January to get all investigations out of the way once and for all so I can plan my next mad adventure to raise more funds 🤣🤣!

I hope so too and you can finally get some answers . Love and hugs Lynne xxxx
