Blood work as great, even my platelet count was up, and the scan looked good. However, the doctor was a bit irritated, but to explain I need to provide some background.

Our company's enrollment for benefits took place on October 1, and as part of that change, I can no longer use a hospital based imaging center without paying an additional $500 deductible that in no way applies toward my overall deductible. In other words, I'm now forced to use a free standing imaging center. So I did...unfortunately, the imaging center still hasn't provided my doctor a copy of their report and the scan that was provided to my doctor only showed the top half of my abdomen (though the order was for lungs and abdomen). Hence the irritation and rightfully so. I'm going to have to have a conversation with the imaging center especially sense I'm going to be using them a bunch moving forward.

Glad to hear that the health report is good. Sorry to hear that seemingly absurd red tape is adding to your stress level.

Awesome. Hopefully the imaging place sorts out the rest of the images soon as well.

Keep the fight strong, Breeze. I know quite well living MRI and CT scan result to result and the coping mechanisms needed to handle being normal in between them and not letting them overtake your life. I admire your courage during this time.

It's scan time again. In fact, I was supposed to have my MRI today, but unfortunately, I can't. I'm not sure if I outlined my new company insurance in this thread, but basically it stated that I had to go to a 3rd party imaging center for my scans or pay what is basically a $500 penalty (as that money doesn't pay for the scan or go towards my deductible). So I scheduled my MRI at a stand alone location, but I found out yesterday that I have to have a special MRI, one that is tied to the scans that were done for my Gamma Knife surgeries. Which means, my scans have to be done at the hospital where the surgery took place - so that just bumped my total out of pocket expense for medical by $2000 this year.

I don't have a new time for the MRI yet, but the CT scan is tomorrow...

I have received the results of both the CT and MRI and things are really good. The CT showed no changes from the scan 3 months ago, and the MRI showed no activity at all, meaning all the treated spots are now gone and no new lesions have formed. The MRI was as good as I could have hoped for, and the doctor said he won't need a follow up scan for 6 months (which is a huge relief based on the post above about the additional cost for MRIs).

Next scan will be the CT in the middle of April.
