Does anyone else get anxious before they have there follow up Cat scan and before you get your results? Not that I think the cancer is back, but because I know what comes with getting rid of it. I hated chemo and didn’t want to do it again but I will if needed.

@Tamlisa Hi Tammy, I know my husband definitely did and still does go through this. He actually through up before his last check-up he went to from nerves. And now he's really with struggling with anxiety because he's worried it will come back. I hope your scan went well!

@lori49 Hi Lori, my scan was great, no cancer. I always get nervous until I get the results. Good luck to your husband.

Oof yes, I totally understand this feeling. I'm in remission now but sometimes I still have nightmares that I'm waiting for results! I wonder if going through cancer can give you PTSD or something similar? I remember the the rollercoaster of emotions I used to go through and it makes me totally sick to my stomach.
