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.

@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.
