Got back from Mayo an hour ago. The CT scan was clear, no signs of enlarged lymph nodes or lymphoma. That’s good news.
The other news, tho is ambiguous. Some of the blood values are not what they ought to be and immune system looks shakier than expected, perhaps set back by the shingles episode. Don’t yet know if this means anything much, except that I’m recovering from the cancer better than from the chemo. (Without the chemo, tho, the cancer would’ve got me.) The best guess at this time is that recovery from chemo is slow, but need to get results from some extra blood tests.
I hope this is just another blip on the long haul of recovery from cancer, chemo, and immune compromise.
