PET Report at 10:00 a.m. - UPDATE 8-30


Recommended Posts

The jury is still out. Ever heard of an infection causing an SUV of 8.2? My dad has a bacterial infection that is very active. This could be the MAC (mycobacterium avium complex) or LC. We are getting the opinions of a couple of other doctors. I'm heading back to TN running from Ernesto.

Thanks for all the prayers. Please keep them coming. Take care.

Ry: sorry I didn't ask for a pass. How much do I owe you?

Thanks for all your prayers.

One of the other doctors (he was Charlie's pulm.) thinks it may just be infection. His advice is do nothing and see how it looks once the antibiotics have more time to work. It's all very tricky with my dad's age, the other infection and his severe/fragile diabetes....

I don't know much about uptake degrees, but I did ask two different peopole yest (radiologist and pulmonologist) if an infection can s how up on a PET and make it inconclusive. Both said yes, which is why my dad's was cancelled. I hope it is an infection for your dad!! Keep us posted
