The sun is shining in my part of Cork today but very windy.Just need a feed back from my question.If you remember I was in CUH in May due to pain just below my shoulder blades.Only had X-ray done and that didn't pick up anything.The problem is the pain came back worse on Friday night it's been niggling since May but sometimes it does get bad.Also I've been running to the loo every 15 mins with bladder urgency.Ive no pain or any sign of infection so I'm worried it might be fluid build up again.I took the bull by the horns this morning and spoke to the liaison nurse.I want to get an MRI not a PET scan within the next few weeks as will be seeing both of my doctors in middle of August.She will try to make an appointment for me for a Catscan but not sure if she can make it without doctors referral.
Am I right in wanting the best type of diagnostic tool they have? Was told an MRI would be too intricate and a lot of scanning would need to be done between the Thorax and Pelvis.I didn't want the Pet scan as only had one done in April.
Just another question.My CA 125 test is done every 3 weeks while on Avastin yet,my husband and I were informed that they don't really go by the levels of the CA125 while on Avastin as it can give false reading. Forgive me if this seems like I'm ranting but I'm not getting much advice or help from the medical side.
