Monday morning day before having the CT scan I received a follow up letter from Colorectal consultant/surgeon who originally requested MRI scans also CT. They had found a rare tumour called Neuroendocrine. Tuesday was a repeat of CT scan this time with Contrast dye was arranged by a Upper GI consultant was unable to obtain previous scans from Ashstead hospital in time.
I took letter with me, on arrival needed to drink a Contrast dye solution took 1 hour, followed by a Cannula scan was from neck area to Bowel, this tumour is to do with nerve cells. I’m hoping tumour is still contained to the tail end of Pancreas without spreading to other organs or lymph glands. Apparently medical professions are still learning more about this rare tumour. In truth I am terrified, I’m trying to remain positive, not doing so great at moment crying as I’m writing this - it’s the unknown. Phoned early Wednesday spoke to consultants secretary gave hospital number, to be told after a few minutes she was unable to log on to computer, she took my number but did not phone back, I phoned late afternoon she said it’s being looked into. Phoned again this morning no news, maybe tomorrow I will receive a phone call.
Thank you to you all for your kind support!!
