So Much For That!

The PET scan this morning is a “no go.” You see, the PET scan works off of sugars and how they are utilized in the body. The blood sugar has to be below 150. I guess 262 is too high.

Not happy.

Every visit to the hospital, they check my blood sugar before much anything happens. Always normal. Good, I’m not diabetic.

Then I get hit with THREE powerful steroids. Yes, three. The next time they check my sugars, usually in the 300’s. This last time, shot up to 450. Introducing high scale insulin.

I whine, fuss, complain, and ask “Why Steroids?” It’s part of my regimen.

My oncologist is going to have to sale me on the reason for, the need for, the very life giving reason I have to take those poisons. I don’t mind the chemo, but I am not diabetic, don’t want any more steroids, and my PET scan was cancelled this morning because of all this nonsense.

Not happy.
