Hello. I understand completely. I'm two years since MBC diagnosis and still feel scared and anxious with each scan and even blood test. I will keep you in my prayers for strength and good results from your scans. Hang in there!

I am a year from diagnosis and still react with anxiety and increased depression when facing repeat scans. I think most of us do. I will keep you in my thoughts and send positive energy your way. All we can do is take things as they come. I hope you have good support system. Use them !

Sending positive energy and vibes to you! This is so normal but so hard at the same time. I’m hoping that you get good news. I’m happy with things just staying stable and a bonus of some shrinking. 🙏

Do something for you after the scan. I’m 2 1/2 years in, starting my 30th round of Ibrance tonight. I too get filled with anxiety and fear with each scan. Will be thinking of you tomorrow and sending prayers of comfort and hope.

Recently went thru scans. I’m 4 years in. It is always anxiety provoking. I pray they go well for you. I meditated daily and got thru waiting for the results ok. 🙏 🌈 I know it’s hard but keep busy and try not to anticipate the results.

Totally understand the anxiety. While it can be a source of bad news, they can also confirm everything working. I guess if we all go into our scans thinking this can confirm good news maybe that can help us all. Good luck today. Fingers crossed for good news.

Sending prayers for strength to embrace the results of the scan knowing love radiates from every cell in your body.

I always hold the vision of a scan that shows complete healing. I image seeing the visual of the scan clear from cancer lesions while sending love from my heart through out my body.

You gots this!

All normal feelings as the scan is the most revealing of the tests. Dealing with Mets for a little more than two years and am always nervous for results. As a matter of fact I am going to my doctor this Friday to get my results. Have the results in my phone portal but won’t look at them in my own! Prayers to u and all dealing with all difficult diseases.

Wise decision. I also waited for face to face. My scans weren’t without a hitch and if I had read the results I probably would have gone off the deep cleaning nd. Having them explain d to me along with plan of treatment made all the difference. Good luck❤️

Just had my doctor visit and have very good pet scan results! Relieved for now and grateful! Had my faslodex injection today and have an embarrassing question. Does anyone experience a pungent odor in their urine after the injection. It lasts for a day or two. I always want to ask my oncologist but forget. Best wishes to all for good results and blessed days.

Senidng you positive energy and good thoughts for NED scan. My sister always asks me if I want her to go with me for the scan. The scan is the easy part. The results are the hard part!

Stay busy, is my MO, up until the last second you can.

We are all there with you, jtgmom! God bless and shine His healing light on you! All of us know the feeling if we have had pet scans. My next one is scheduled sometime this fall, and I know I'll be just as worried. Try and stay busy this weekend; I'll be sending prayers for you! XO Linda

Look at it in a positive way. If its good that's wonderful. If it shows something not so good, you will know to change your treatment and get on the right path. Kinda like getting lost. You realize you are going the wrong way and then turn around and get on the right road. Prayers your way!

We are all here for you. I am now in my 5th year since dx and still hate the scan and blood test days - good results call for celebration, bad ones send me into a state of panic and when that is over I have to look at it as a message to try something else.

Very good thoughts coming your way

I am 14 years into living with mbc and for me, the first year to year and a half were definitely the hardest emotionally. One thing I've changed that has helped me with scanxiety, is that I stopped praying that scans would find nothing to praying that the scans would reveal anything that needs to be known. Maybe that wouldn't work for anybody else, but switching my hope and expectation to knowledge rather than specific results did help. Also my onc told me that she pays most attention to how we feel, more than test results. When I have had progression, it has never come as a surprise--I have felt that something was off each time. I hope you won't have to wait long to get scan results. And that you will find peace with whatever they are. And of course I am also hoping for the best news for you. And know that being nervous is not unusual at all...waiting can be like a dripping faucet.....

Greetings: Sister/warrior I pray that our Deliverer/ Lord/God, delivers great news from your test/scans. Remember CHRIST is our C=Comforter in times of discomfort, H=Helper in times of need, I=Intercessor when we ask Jesus to intercede to our Father/God for our prayers to be answered. S=Strengthener when we feel weak, T=Teacher when we need guidance and wisdom. I pray you use this as a daily prayer, and as you pray with 2 or more there is power in this prayer, and God is in the midst. Don't forget PRAISE. I do pray this prayer for my sister/warriors struggling to overcome this disease. We are not victims, but we are Victors/Overcomers . XoXoXoXoX

Broken is a very good way to describe how we sometimes feel when things go wrong and we feel lost in the land of the worried well. Alone and broken. That is why this board is a healing place. Here we are not alone and we bootstrap one another up to a better place. Thank you my sisters on this journey. I’d often think I was going crazy without all of you. 💕

you aren't going anywhere! they have tons of stuff to throw at this..and more new things every week. lean into the days you are anxious by walking, breathing, visiting a friend, savoring some hot tea, calling people you like to talk to...just distract yourself... it is nothing in our control. practice major self care!! of course we are all anxious but that really doesn't help anything!!

You will be fine!
