Tom K Posted July 6, 2006 Share Posted July 6, 2006 An MRI was done on my chest and abdomen this past Wednesday. It showed “abnormal” tissue in the upper right chest where the lobectomy was performed. That same area had an SUV of 3.4 on the recent PET. The report states it could be Lymphangitic spread of the Cancer or related to previous radiation treatments. The MRI also showed 2 lesions on the “dome” of my liver. One was 8mm the other 1cm. That area of the liver had an SUV of 4.1 on the PET. Both lesions became enhanced under contrast, which according to the radiologist is indicative of cancer. My Onc still maintains it would be “highly unusual for NSCLC to metastasis this quickly after completing a first line chemo treatment” He also mentioned my blood tests show liver function was normal. He is taking my case to the Tumor Board on Friday to consider options for biopsies of both areas and possible treatment protocols. He promised to call me Friday morning after the board has met. So for now, I am just waiting and trying to maintain that positive attitude. I am sure I’ll feel better once we have a plan ready. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
