    Scanphobia again…it sure doesn't get any easier…I want to believe I am still NED…I want to believe it will be a clear…YET…I worry they will find something…People tell me not to worry and think positive…If I think positive and it's not good…then I am totally destroyed…if I think the worse and it's a clean set of scans then I am relieved…this will probably never change!

      Know what you mean, when I was going through all my surgeries i had a girfriend that kept sayin 'i'm sure everything is just fine, you know I have a sixth sense aboth these things".  Third surgery, I told her please no more predictions..they all had been wrong. 

      We'll all think positively for you!  Good luck.

        That's one thing about major cancer centers…at Mayo I got them in the afternoon if I had them in the AM…at Moffitt I can get the results the same day as well! Except this time I see Dr Weber in the AM on Wednesday so I will just wait …
