Sixpack! When did you get back?!
Masond_06 - After 5 abdominal CT scans, I would probably slow down on those unless your doc feels one is absolutely necessary. That said, I've looked this up before and the actual risk of you developing cancer because of those scans is still very small. I'll try to find the link - I posted it ages ago - but I remember I stopped worrying completely after reading it. (I've had 1 abdominal CT scan with and without contrast, a chest CT scan, a sinus CT scan, about 8 mammograms, maybe a dozen x-rays and countless dental x-rays.)
