My husbands Ct Scan results are back and he is still in remission

post #1 of 29

We always get scared when he has a ct scan.
He has been having low wbc.
The dr had him get a ct scan to see if the Leukemia was coming back.
He has been in remission for 3 years.
They said there are no signs of tumors or the leukemia coming back .
They check for tumors because the chemo can cause them.
He does have gall stones though.
He will see the dr Jan 21.

Thanks Everyone,
He still has to see the Dr every 3-4 months and get blood tests.
We are so glad he is still in remission.

Thanks Everyone,
The dr did not say how many gall stones there are.

That is fantastic that the scan came back clear. And, although gallstones aren't that pleasent to have it certainly is better then what it could have been.

Sending along some feel better vibes.

He had no idea he had gallstone.
I am the one that gets that terrible pain.

Awesome news for both of you!!!

As for gallstones I had my gallbladder removed in 2006 at age 23 due to those stupid little gallstones. Hope all goes well.

Some people don't feel them - they're lucky for that. You should be checked, though.

It's not too terrible of a surgery to recover from. Depending on pain tolerance he may be up and about that very same day - while he will need to move, that can make you sore later. They will send him home with pain meds, I was unlucky and couldn't take them so just had to deal with what moderate pain there was. It's certainly less than any of the GI pain is.
If he already has anti-nausea meds for the chemo - those work for any nausea after.

Also, any abdominal surgery tends to have the common side effect of diarrhea. Getting the gallbladder removed can also cause bile salts diarrhea. So don't be surprised if this happens, but do talk to the doctor as there is a med to help. Though they say you can go back to a regular diet within a couple of days, it's a good idea to eat low to no fat for a few weeks as fat can trigger pain and diarrhea.

Good news about the rest, through. At least the gallbladder issue is a reasonably easy fix.

Thanks,
They have not said if they are going to do anything about the gall stones.
post #20 of 29
They may not if he doesn't have many and there's no signs of it affecting the liver or pancreas. You may want to consider a low fat diet to help, though.

I always get mad at him and try to make him eat better.
If it was up to him he would get fast food all the time.
I have stopped him from doing that.

I was diagnosed with leukemia lymphoma when I was 3. That was 18 years ago. By the age of 5 I was done with treatments. 16 Years later I still have to go for blood tests done every 3 months. I am glad to hear your husband is doing good now

He had no idea he had gallstones.
They have not said how many he has either.

That's great news that he's still in remission! And, while gall stones are bad, at least they found out about them before they got painfull. I'm sending loads of "continuing remission" vibes.
