Maybe not?

Letter from the hospital today moving my consultant appointment reviewing my CT scan forward three months. I can't imagine that this is good news, but the NHS will no doubt make me wait.

Luckily I still have a bit of that well person's complacency and denial on my side, but I get my GP to phone them anyway. The scan hasn't been reported yet, so it's an administrator who has decided to get me in quicker rather than a concerned doctor. Scanxiety, eh?

Had my CT scan yesterday, then off as has become my tradition for Dim Sum at the New World in Chinatown, which more or less balances things out.

I just need to wait until my consultant appointment to hear if all was OK. I'm not at all worried, I've seemingly gone back to the complacent state of those whom haven't had cancer, believing that all will be OK and it couldn't happen to me.

If this is clear, I'm all done with London. No more Dim Sum and no more cancer. Seems fair.

Off for a CT scan in a bit. This might be my last one ever-it's been five years with no sign of recurrence, and if it is clear, London intend to discharge me. Strangely, this piles on the pressure, but I'm no stranger to scanxiety now.
