rinksgal Posted July 11, 2003 Share Posted July 11, 2003 Well guess my worries weren't for nothing. Maybe now they will listen when we say he has a fever again and needs checked!!! The oncologists nurse had blowed us off saying a little bitty fever doesn't come from cancer. Well with Darrell my s/o it does mean cancer!!! Thank God for Darrells family doctor. He did listen and ordered a pet scan. It showed he has cancer in his lymph nodes in the middle of his chest. (The hilum lymph nodes.) This is what his doctor said but now I'm looking at the report and it says (focus of abnormal uptake in the right side of the mediastinum consistent with malignant adenopathy. says computer analysis yields an SVU max of 10.4 g/ml for this abnormaility indicating that ir represents malignant adenopathy) (there is a well defined nodular focus of abnormal activity noted in the right side of the mediastinum at the level of the aortic arch)Everything else in his body showed nothing. I'm thankful for that!!!!!!!!!! I'm scared to death, but we are gonna face this demon head on and it isn't gonna win!!!!!!!!! His family doctor had already talked with the oncologist and we have a appointment with him wednesday!! I guess I'll know more then!! I'm gonna make this short because I want to do some research on the web... Thanks for everyone support and me being nuts last night!!!
