Hi everyone, hope all are doing well.
I am four years post treatment and had a follow up appointment a few days ago. My specialist said that I need a CT scan to check for possible recurrence due to some symptoms I'm having. He told me that he would add a red dot to the request which means it's urgent but said that it may be two weeks before I hear or it may be up to two months. Two months seems a very long time to wait worrying if the cancer has come back and I know from past experience that, once the scan has been done, it can take weeks or months before it has been reported on. Has anyone else found that they have to wait this long for a scan that will show whether there is recurrence or not? Is this normal? Don't get me wrong, I am so happy that my treatment worked despite the fact that I have a lot of late effects but I seem to have spent quite a bit of time in the last few years having to worry for months about what is going on due to the time it takes for scan results to come back though I have never had to wait for two months to actually have a scan before. Really worried.
