I Hate Barium

Going for a followup CT scan. Just wanted to say hello to the only ladies I know how creepy this all is. I have been so healthy that I forget I am a cancer patient. I hate it when I have to do things that remind of that.

Here is the exciting news. We are going to AFRICA on vacation in just one month. All I have to do is get through this nasty scan and one more pap/pelvic... and we are off.

Fingers crossed for happy results,

Africa sounds amazing. Barium does not. Lets think more about the safari! Thinking of you with good results. Tamara

The title of your thread had me laughing. I just had a ct scan last Friday and the phrase "I hate barium!" was often repeated.

Have a wonderful time in Africa!
