It’s almost that time again. Next Wednesday, September 7th 2016, I’ve got my 6 monthly check up planned. Although I already know what will happen , it never stops frightening me. Nerves are already crushing me for over a month, both good and bad. I can’t say I’m mad about going. Those check ups actually save me but they scare the shit out of me.
In the first stage after my tumor got removed, the doctors thought it was a good thing to keep me coming every three months. Now, that’s just too much. They pump this radioactive stuff into your body to make an MRI scan (big magnetic field around you) and to see if there are any changes. But it’s super bad for your body so they try to keep those quick check ups limited. After three times they told me I was ‘safe enough’ to be checked every six months. After those scans I get to talk to the neurosurgeon who gives me the good or bad news.
As I’m writing this post (on Saturday), my hands are already shaking. I absolutely HATE everything about needles, injections, … it’s just not my style. Only 3 more days before I find out if I’m still safe. I already had my blood tested and those results where above average. My doctor even told me I had THE perfect results. That’s comforts me a tiny bit but they didn’t found anything in my blood when I had the tumor so … Let’s be positive, right? I’m trying to keep my focus on my blog and workouts at this point.
I’ll keep you guys posted about my further condition!
