Rheumatology Visit

Wednesday, July 12th, 2006

Dr. Y. says my R.A. is still well under control from the high dosages of Rituxan I’ve received through chemotherapy. He doesn’t think it’s necessary to start Methotrexate yet and wants me to resume taking Celebrex for stiffness or joint pain.

PET Scan Results

Monday, July 10th, 2006

First day back at work. I’ve been able to adjust to sleeping at night and had no trouble getting up early.

More great news – my scan was completely clear. No questionable areas whatsoever.

My next scan will be in October.

PET Scan

Thursday, July 6th, 2006

I originally made the appointment for this PET scan for the afternoon because I’m still having trouble falling asleep at night.

I didn’t find out until later that I had to fast for five hours prior to the test. Had I known, I’d have made it for early morning and forced myself out of bed.

It went okay though. I’ll find out the results next Monday morning.
