Bev'sSister Posted December 11, 2006 Share Posted December 11, 2006 My sister's Dr. told her today that the cancer has disappeared, as far as the PET scan goes. He told her that he knows better than that and he wants her to continue with the chemo (3 more rounds) and also he is going to start Radiation. Does that make sense to anyone? Will this be some sort of preventive radiation done? How do you radiate when you don't see any cancer to radiate? He did say the treatment is working remarkably well and he said he knows several patients that would love to see pet scans like hers. She is also taking chemo very well and her blood work has been coming back excellent. I want to get excited about this, but I don't understand why she has to continue to take these treatments. Can anyone clue me in on this? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
