I finally had the appointment with the oncolgist to officially receive the results of the scan that were faxed to me two weeks ago, and were in my back pocket.
The Dr, in his Eyeorish manner looked at the results for a long time and slowly said " I think we should...... I think we should do.... I think we should do absolutely nothing!" and then he laughed! I don't think oncologists laugh very much at work, because it was a rusty laugh, and I wonder if his laugh mechanism will be sore tomorrow.

I think I like his sense of humor, even if it had you sitting on pins and needles for a minute. Way to go. You are just incredible.

When I go for my checkups I always have my ca 125 drawn in advance. So when I go for my checks, as soon as the doc walks in the room, the first question I ask is: what was my ca 125????? A few visits ago my medical onc's reply was: Guess????? I thought I'd have a heart attack. ANd he actually allowed my DH and I to guess around for a bit. Good thing I secretly love this guy. I did realize after the fact he would not have done this had the news been bad.

Perhaps our oncs trained together.

My medical team is so funny. I've shot one of my surgeon's weddings, and now the other surgeon has gotten engaged, so I'm shooting his wedding later in the year. I also did headshots for my nurse's daughter. So I'm my medical team's personal photographer. I'm also their most "consistent" patient, since I'm there three weeks out of each month, and have been going in all the time basically since March of last year.

We laugh and poke fun at each other, and I can call anytime to talk to anyone I want, since I have both of my surgeons' personal cell phone numbers. I actually used one the other day, since I was on the phone with a friend who has Stage IV stomach cancer and she is having a very hard time. I put her on the phone with my surgeon so she could make some suggestions.

I feel very blessed to have the doctors that I did/do. It took a while to become "friends," since they initially keep a bit of a distance. But we've all gone to dinner now, if you can believe that.

As to my CA125, I get it once a month, and I always call and have a nurse tell me. I can't stand to wait.
