Hi Everyone,
  I have a bone scan tomorrow. It will be my first since dx 06/06/06. I am not really worried. I am very in tune with my body and I know that the scan will be clean or no change. I am nervous about the procedure. I always get that way when some guy walks in wearing a lead suite carrying a lead box containing a lead needle that is filled with radioactive stuff that the guy wearing the lead suite tells me wont hurt me. SURE IT WONT HURT ME !!!. Merry friggin Christmas now bend over. Oh and by the way this stuff is kind of thick so instead of a lead needle we will be injecting this crap into your butt with a lead turkey baster. ****. Did anyone notice like I just did the date of my actual dx. WOW!!! too weird. 666 yep. wasnt a good day. Reminds me of all the people that got married on 777. I wonder how many are divorced by now. Have a wonderful day Ya'll. I will post results if I get them but probably not until after the holidays. Todd

Todd,

I thought the bone scan wasn't as bad as the CT scan since (i) you don't have to drink that disgusting stuff; (ii) the technician was cute.

Sorry to reply so late. If you didn't get to read this until afterward, well, I hope things went well.
