Yep

2cm all round ,side, top, bottom

Albert has had 14 of those on metastasis , all on one arm, fortunately

But hey it’s better than being dead if it spreads

And as yet he is still here

Book your apartment Ray, live your life

Agreed Sandra and Jean.
After tomorrows radioactive scan results are in within the week and unless more have been found I do plan on booking immediately after for next winter.
As it seems not to have spread so far it seems to have been caught and dealt with early. Just hope no more are detected at a later stage like Albert.

Oh yes, Ray, do have something booked for next year.

Papworth, it seems then , have a really good system. They have (had - it is a whole new hospital now) a wing of the old building set aside to do all the tests in one day.
First was circulation test which involves listening to all the arteries as they pump. Back to waiting room. Called for ECG. Back to waiting room. Call for blood tests, then down to x-ray followed by appointment with anaesthetist. Then comes a chat with the registrar who goes over all the test results with you, revealing in Chris's case that a triple heart bypass was needed rather than the new stent he thought he was getting! The final part of the, exhausting but satisfying day, is a chat with the consultant who commented that he was "one plumber talking to another plumber"!

We were very close to the private facility so we wonder if, what started out as something that private patients were offered, was rolled out to all patients? It makes sense to take all the stress of travelling away from people with heart problems. It must be more efficient for them too as some tests might reveal a problem that can be discussed on the day.

Alberts primary was much more advanced than yours Ray, it had already grown to infiltrate the lymph system

The others were metastasis from the primary tumour not other primaries

Hopefully you will be well and they have caught it in it’s early stage

I think they have

Thanks Gals. It does look like it was caught early and all these scans are just checking it has not spread.
Todays PET scan with a radioactive product pit into a 'drip' was painless but boring two hours. Results get sent to my dermo doc in two days.

So we wait but she is usually very good and sends e-mails from home.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

We have been very lucky all our long lives with health. It's saddening to hear friends and relatives problems with some very severe.
I do feel a bit of a sham with all the treatment and attention to what appears to be something quite minor. Although it did stop the winter break.
So as soon as we can get back to making plans it will be a great relief all round.
