There is significant uncertainty over my future - apparently!

I have my scan tomorrow morning at 08.40 and will probably get results back in about a week. Whilst I had many scans in hospital this is the first after my release and is part of the regular check up programme. iIt is only a CT scan, I am looking to push for the PET soon. My care team are discussing at the next MDT meeting so I will keep on top of that.

Work wise, I am knackered as still having panic attacks on occasion at night so can't sleep too good although these are getting less and less...thankfully - I saw the occupational health guy a couple of weeks ago. My company wanted to ensure I am fit for work so went to see the company doctor and got his report this morning.... the last part is a bit of a shocker and I quote...

"As regards the short, medium and long-term effects, as I think you appreciate, there is significant uncertainty over his future. In the short term there is good reason to expect that Tony will maintain his current level of performance and most probably improve. The long term we must be more guarded about since there is a significant chance of recurrence of the condition...."

Prayer is not just for when you are in trouble but it helps me enormously when I am - I am not accepting there is 'significant uncertainty' - I know I am here to stay!

Much Love and blessings to all.

    I'm not a doctor but will say "in the long term, Tony should receive continued support and understanding from his employer as he has been through a life changing experience and continues to do so"
    Good luck with the scan results. big hug,
