my name is Lisa.  My husband was diagnosed with sqamous cell lung ca.  3 years ago.  He had a right upper lobe resection followed by chemo.  Cancer came back 2 years later in his left adrenal gland.  He got that resected and had 6 chemos .  He also developed melnoma on his rt ear lobe.  He got that excised.  

So his last pet scan shows activity in a few places ... but the SUV numbers are below 5.  

Well that is about it.   Just want to do as much as I can to keep him around.

Welcome here.  I had the same form of cancer (Squamous cell) and had a resected right lung followed by surgical complications, chemo and cyber surgery.  Have also had several squamous cell skin cancer resections.  

The PET SUV > 5 should be watched and I'm sure his oncologist is on top of things.  I hope he continues to be well.

Stay the course.
