Holy cow!

Have you seen the news report that CT scans could cause more damage than they discover? Holy cow! In the past month I've had at least three that I can recall.

So if I do start to glow in the dark it might not be from the rads I'm getting five mornings a week.

It's more likely to come from the diagnostic tests I receive.

ADDENDUM: Dr. Z, the oncologist, has told me that CT scans are still pretty darn safe. He read about my dilemma on the blog and said he saw the story reporting on possible cancer problems. So until he warns me otherwise I'll still do the CT scans when asked by my medical saviors. You should talk to your doctors about it if there are any concerns, too. It only makes sense.
