PET Results


Recommended Posts

Well, I pushed the door open a little more and am trying to squeeze through. :D The Tumor Board agreed that if the PET showed no hot spots on the old primaries, no new spots and if only the lymph tumor shows activity, I would be recommended for radiation treatment of the lymph tumor.

Met with my ONC today and the PET results were FANTASTIC, :D the only hot spot (SUV of 15) was the lymph tumor. The rest of my body was clean, showing no hot spots. I meet with the Radiation ONC Thursday and we start our new battle.

Whoda thunk, 27 months ago I was classified Stage IV with multiple tumors in both lungs. Now I’m down to one and I actually feel I have a chance to beat this beast. 8)

Thank you all…..Live each day and hope…

Don’t ever give up!!!!!

Jim,this is really great news.I am very happy for you.

I really believe you can win this fight too.All the tumors I have had were combatted the best with radiation,(my opinion).

The radiation is cumulative as was the chemo so there is a chance you will have side effects as with chemo (sore throat,fatigue,nasea etc.)but it is certainly doable and well worth while in my opinion.
