I have discovered how to get rid of scanxiety from CT scans and bone scans. I do not recommend it however.
I had my CT scans and bone scans last week and even though I had to wait to be poked a number of times as the usual was happening (not finding veins), I barely noticed. I sat in the chair with a big board going across me like a highchair for adults and just let them poke and poke while I stared into space.
I know my results will be coming up soon and I haven’t even checked the date, which I better do, as I don’t want to miss the appointment.
If I said it didn’t matter to me what the results are; I would be lying. It just is now it seems more like ‘whatever’. And yet in the same breath that is not true either.
I want to be stable of course, of course I do. It is just that I don’t want Sheldon to have cancer, Jacquie either, but Sheldon even more.
So it seems that to get rid of scanxiety one has to be so worried about someone else that they forget about themselves. I don’t recommend it.
