I got a phone call from the Dr. today, tell me that he wants to see me Friday at 8:30. This is for my CT scan results. Don't they only call when it's bad?

No, it doesn't. There are a large number of reasons why they might call you in. They might not like going over results on the phone. Its definitly not necessarily a worst case scenario too.

One thing that I do notice, is that hte lumps seem to be the same size as they were a year ago. Do you think they would have grown if they were cancerous?

Every two years I go in for a colonoscopy as I tend to grow the moderately bad polyps. One week later I go in for a review of the results. Even if the results are good, the doctor will only dicusss the matter in person. Sometimes they just want to give you advice/explanation, listen to your concerns, or do other minor stuff. In fact, this past year the Dr was called out of town and I had to go to another Dr for the results - no phone results at all. They also get to charge you another 150 bucks if you go see them.

It is my opinion that if your results were positive for cancer, the Dr would want you in immediately.

Anyway - I wish you well in this.

Thank you all very, very much for the help and support.


I really don't display the signs of a sick person, I can jog several miles, I eat fine, I'm not loosing weight, I'm occasionally tired (from working real late), and most of the time im packed with energy. I get over colds in the normal timeframe, and my temperature is nothing special either. It seems that these lumps, non-growing, are my only true symptoms. Well, hopefully, by Friday afternoon I'll be posting here about good results.

We never get results over the phone here that I know of so please don't stress J, as sacrifice said if it was of a serious nature I am sure they would have U in asap.

I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. God bless and all the best.

That really makes me feel better to hear, makes sense though.


I deeply appreciate the prayers.

No.

Don't fret about having to go in, it's quite a common practice, they don't like giving "bad news" over the phone so they refuse to give "good news" as well (that way they prevent the "tip off" factor).

Just shows that nothing can proven by having to "go in" for results.

Hang in there and best wishes.

Results came back NEGATIVE for cancer, or anything else for that matter! My white blood cell count was normal, red cell count normal, scan was normal! The doctor did a complete feel over my body (pelvic exam was uncomfortable), and he noticed nothing odd. Again, I'm extremely relieved to know that I'm ok.


YES!
