Dr Buresh Oncologist Appointment

I arrived at the oncologists office at 9am as scheduled.  I was cheerful and confident that the CT Scan was showing lymph nodes NOT cancer.  Which is not the most popular attitude to have in a large cancer office, but I was making sure that I did not give the impression that I was scared.  I waited in the office for DR. Buresh to come. He did.  He was friendly, but seemed to try to find out if there were indicators that showed I had some signs or symptoms of cancer.  Every question he asked, and re-asked, and triple-asked of me were the same. “Do you have night sweats?”  or  “Do you seat at night?”  or ” are there times when you wake up sweating?  Each time, “no”, ” NO”,  and  “No, never.” .  I think he wanted to make sure that these images of lymph nodes were definitely a part of the Still’s disease.  After 45 minutes, he felt assured that I was previously very healthy and that this CT scan is showing part of the Still’s.

I felt like I got the stamp of good health from him.  However, I need to go back and have a re-check and CT scan done before March just to make sure.

I will be fine 🙂
