I’m sure it comes as no surprise to anyone that foolishness continues to come out of the radiography department. When we met with the radiation oncologist today, he say, “Hmmm, well, they (the radiologists) didn’t do what I asked.” I responded, “You’re lucky you got what you did!” Nope, we weren’t cynical, not one bit! He had asked they the not only look at the spine (the bones, etc.), but also at the soft tissues, hence, the need for contrast. Only read the bone portion had been read. The rad onc looked at the scans and didn’t see anything alarming or amiss, but that’s also not his area of expertise. So, he is going to ask that another radiologist review it again, this time including the soft tissue in the analysis. If anything is wrong, I’ll get a call.
The upshot of the matter is that there’s nothing to be concerned about at this time. This is good. It doesn’t, however, give an answer for why the pain is there, so I’m just supposed to keep tabs on it. If it worsens, I should either request an MRI or see the people in the spine and neck center.
How’s that for a short, sweet, and to-the-point post? And, it’s good news! Huzzah!
