Bone/CAT Scan #2

I had my second round of bone and CT scans earlier this week. The previous scans (in January) indicated a lung nodule and a problem spot in my left hip joint, both of which could be signs of metastasis (spread) of cancer. However, both can also be attributed to events not related to cancer, like scarring from a respiratory infection and osteoarthritis. I just received a call from the oncologist's nurse, who said that neither problem area had increased, and there weren't any new issues--good news, in other words. Now if I can get through my post-treatment mammogram in June, I can breath easy for a few months. Then, we do this all over again.
