teriw Posted April 17, 2007 Share Posted April 17, 2007 We received Bill's PET/CT scan and brain MRI results yesterday. The PET/CT shows progression in the chest since December (still only one side), and the other hot spots outside of the chest are showing up again. Less than it was at diagnosis, but certainly more than we'd hoped for. One suspicious area on the bone has resolved. The plan is to start Topotecan on Monday (5 days in a row) and go from there. No radiation yet. On the upside, the brain MRI is clear. This obviously wasn't the news we wanted to hear, but it could have been worse. The past week of anticipating the scans and waiting for the results has been hard (it felt almost like it did at diagnosis) and we've hit some emotional lows, but having a plan has helped us both regain our fighting spirit.
