What exactly will I learn from the CT scan?
I had an ultrasound Friday and I knew something was wrong. It was ordered as follow up to an ultrasound I had during a routine visit that indicated borderline endometrial thickening. The technician could not hide her concern and she seemed dismayed when I told her I had no bleeding. Monday I received a call from the Dr. Who informed me they highly suspect ovarian cancer. So in 24 hrs I’ve been booked for a CT scan on Sat. And blood work which happened today. The oncology referral has already been sent. I’m in a real spin here. So much in so little time. I can’t really identify any overt symptoms accept my appetite which hasn’t resulted in any great weight loss. I really need some words of encouragement cause I can’t understand how this abrupt turn in the road happened without any warning. What will I learn from the CT scan, will it definitely identify the cancer? Will it rule it out? How can they be so sure it’s cancer based on the ultrasound?
