Posts Tagged ‘PET scan’

So I underwent PET scan on 5th of April 2012, bit boring procedure where they inject radio-active material and don’t even tell you about ‘NOT TO COME IN CONTACT WITH KIDS’ because you will be emitting radiation. Unfortunately I came home and too a nap with my kid. Seriously my faith in hospitals is diminishing.

On 11th my results were out, there is a lesion in the liver, but it’s tiny, So there I was once again between the devil and the deep blue sea, broke down into pieces, told my wife ‘this ship is sinking’ .. hearing that  she broke down too, I have not seen her cry so bitterly since her father died 5 years ago. Then we took courage, prayed and sent the report to Dr Kamran A Khan (surgeon oncologist aka my guardian angel) who asked if I could travel to India,  So all plans were set for me to reach India by 22nd for some procedure that I had to undergo to contain the spread. But then Dr Khan said, it was not so serious that I should leave my job and fly to India, instead he asked me to send the PET scan CD to him, which I did but he hasn’t replied since. Meanwhile I have an appointment with Dr C here in Kuwait on 29th of April. Not sure what he’s going to say, but I am expecting disaster and ready for it. But what ever happens I will NOT get operated here.

In other news my wife got driving license, she drove half the way to church on Good Friday and then panicked and stopped the car in the middle of the road, which is fine, because I keep nagging her about proper driving since my life (and my kids life) is in her hands. If all goes well, I should teach her how to drive on her own by the year-end (Bucketlist #74)

Nothing much to add other than I have serious problems with incontinence, I know this will never heal, it’s one of the perks of undergoing “ultra low anterior resection”. and the fissure are bloody mothertuckers, but days are good when I avoid meat and follow a strict vegetable diet.

So pray for me, or even thoughts will do, check the video below,

Little rewind:

Things went totally haywire on Feb 21, I happened to visit the doctor to enrol myself for thrombosis observation, and he saw my condition and asked me to undergo a blood test, and then told me to stop the chemotherapy as my thighs had severe blood clots since my platelets had dropped dangerously. So on Feb 21st I officially ended my 6 cycles of chemotherapy (just short of 5 days of completion)

Since then I have been gaining strength, even taken over the shop management as the store manager (who wanted me to be expelled) is on vacation to visit his first wife in Egypt.

But all is not well, I did a CT scan on 11th of March and the tiny lesion on my liver seems to have grown. So I will be undergoing PET CT scan on 5th of April. I am really tensed about the outcome as Dr Bhavin wants me to undergo surgery if the report shows tumour in my liver. Everyone has been asking me to stay positive and keep my self busy with prayers and positive thoughts, which is exactly I am doing (at times) I want to live, desperately want to live and watch my kid grow up, I have so many unfinished tasks to complete. Physically I am at my best, haven’t felt this sporty in a long time. I am doing regular exercise every morning and keeping my self positive.

Met a woman who was battling colon cancer and is in her last stage, we had a long talk as both of us were waiting for our turn at the doctors office. But I was greatly disturbed after the talk, realizing how a life can end all of a sudden. In the future I should avoid talks at the hospital.

In other news, my kid was beaten badly by his baby sitter for not eating, my wife did confront the nanny and fired her. We asked our part time maid to baby sit my kid, which she agreed and has relived our anxiety to a great extent.

Also my other blog crossed 2 million hits, but somehow i don’t feel like writing there anymore, not sure if it is a writers block or life is finally taking a turn.

Will update this blog once I get to read my PET CT scan results. Meanwhile Keep praying for the sick.
