Good news the scan shows no progression, still have the usual inflamation but no development in anything nasty since the last one six months ago. Here’s hoping everybody elses scan results are as good.
We had the usual walk of doom to the appointment, although this time as the weather was so good we left early and walked along the south bank up to Guy’s. Past all the buskers and tourists, it felt slightly surreal to be on our way to a hospital. When we got to London Bridge it all got very confusing because it has been made one way for the olympics, we kept being redirected from where we wanted to walk through by traffic police who said we couldnt get to National Rail that way, in the end we got one who was sympathetic to us saying we wanted to walk through to Guy’s hospital and let us through without a major diversion.
Walking in to the hospital, I got the usual feeling of my brain leaving my body, it’s as though your mind is saying to your body “actually i’d rather not go in here today but please feel free to go on without me”.
The appointment itself was straight to the point, good news from the scan, quick listen to the lungs to confirm fully inflated, quick chat about the pain, which was basically yes it is due to nerve damage, and it may well not improve, so see you in six months for the next PET scan.
We thought time to celebrate, so a few drinks , a meal and then a walk back along the Thames to see the bridges which are all lit up for the London 2012 exhibit called Dazzle.
Roll on Autumn and some more suny days.
