The next CT scan

Yesterday, Wednesday the 27th, I went back to Texas Oncology for another CT scan prior to my next visit with Dr. Flippo that’ll be on Tuesday March 5th. This time instead of just scanning my upper body, for you know the nodule on my lung, I got the abdominal area scanned too. That meant I had to drink two bottles of that nasty barium liquid. I chose the mocha chocolate flavor. I downed that then had to wait 45 minutes for it to get in my system. I went in for the scan and got my second IV of the day, for the contrast. I forgot to mention that I had labs first (bloodwork). The scan took a little longer this time. When I got home I visited the toilet multiple times. That barium acts like a strong laxative, or some such.
