PET/CAT SCAN DONE YESTERDAY......

i had to practice some very heavy medittion shallow breathing exercises but i was able to lay completely still for 25 minutes and got the procedure done.

i was really hoping to have received the " we burned/chemo'ed the cancer crap to death" message but it was not to be...... so now we wait for tomorrow.

i am going on my 7th week of this CRAP COUGH..... it has worn me out....i am constantly tired day in an day out.  even walking my doggies up and back on our street tires me........ before all of this started--i was walking anywheres from 6 to 12 miles daily....

i will let you all know as soon as i know

have a safe and pleasant evening

WEST LOS ANGELES V.A. MEDICAL CENTER-WESTWOOD

a week after having completed my PSA and urine tests(5/22/18), i noticed blood in the toilet and completed the F.I.T--fecal immunochemical test.... I forgot to mail it in and drove to the VA and had them give me another one, did it and that afternoon i returned it...two days later i received a call to schedule a colonoscopy for June 04, 2018. results came back positive for a ployp that was excised and also a 4-5cm malignant growth on the dentate line of the anus--right smack in/around my spinchter muscle. T3N0M0...prognosis seems to be really good as it has not traveled nor gone into nodes. scheduled to start chemo/radiation with 5-FU and mitomyacin first 4 days and last 4 days using a PICC line.

AM NOT USING THE 5-FU....INSTEAD ITS CAPECITABINE 500MG
