False Positives...


Recommended Posts

I ain't said much about it, but my last PET scan showed my stomach wall "hot" and the radiologist said there was some "thickening" of my stomach wall as well. My oncologist did say that they had seen some false positives like this and my CEA value had remained well below normal even, so I had some hope that this was a false positive but still some worry that it wasn't, as well. Last Monday, we put the worry to bed with a endoscopic sonogram type thing. Of course, it's not 100% garanteed, nothing ever is, but the gastro doctor said everything looked perfectly healthy. :D

The forward plan is PET scans every three months just to be sure and this here is the real kicker...

wait for it...

Doc says that he's pretty confident in my "cure" and that I do NOT have to take any more Tarceva or anything else!

Thank You, Jesus! Amen.
