An early Christmas Present

I posted about 3 weeks ago about a swelling on my neck which just appeared and I really did think it was some kind of reoccurence, but amazingly not so. I have had to wait 3 weeks for the results anyway my lovely specialist nurse phoned to say the CAT scan Is clear nothing to see. CAn,t believe it I am beyond thrilled. The swelling is still there so they are going to discuss what next at the md team meeting on Friday but I am so going to enjoy Christmas. I hope all you good women are as well as you can be. Love Chris

  • Great news.

    It couldn't be something entirely different like a problem with a tooth or ear? I ask as I've had this recently and it seems it was the tooth...

    We tend to think everything is connected and sinister, don't we, so great that it seems not!x

  • Hi Gretti, Will be interested to hear what GO said. Good luck with next round of chemo. HAVE A GOOD Christmas. Love Christine

  • Chris

    I had swelling in my neck—radiogist said scan showed nothing—but my oncologist reviewed it frame by frame—saw a blood clot near my port in superior vena cava—so they called it SVC clot—after heparin shots the swelling in neck dissipated and next scan —clot was gone but I still take blood thinner pill now


  • Useful to know about this possibility. Thanks. Something else to watch out for... but it's much better to know what can happen!

  • Thank s for that. The M.D. were going to review it on Friday so will have to wait and see. HAVE a great Christmas. LOVE Chris
