CT Scan Result
CT Taken On the 8th April 2009 at 1245pm
No lymphadenopathy or lesion found anywhere in the neck, axilla (armpit), chest or abdomen.
Previously when the diagnosis of Hodgkins was made in December 2008, CT Scan back then showed lymphadenopathy in the neck, axilla, mediastinum(chest), and spleen.
Specialist Nurse : I am really impressed with your response to treatment. The radiologist couldn't find any abnormality at all on your CT.
Me : Nothing at all?!
Specialist Nurse : Nope mas, nothing.
Me : Do you not get such a response that often for patients with Hodgkins?
Specialist Nurse : We know that patients with Hodgkins respond well to chemotherapy, but at this stage we usually can still see some lymphadenopathy or even detect scar lesions (due to the treatment) in the CT scan.
Me : Alhamdulillah, that really is a good news. So, does that warrant a reduction in the number of treatments for me? Just 10 rather than 12 doses maybe? (grinning)
Specialist Nurse : (Laughing) I'm sorry Mas, it doesn't. You still need to finish the whole cycle. Good try there. At least you should celebrate for this great news.
Mas : Well, thanks Helen. That definitely makes my day.
SubhanAllah. Alhamdulillah. Allahuakbar. O Allah, how indebted I am to your endless Mercy.
