Sam'swifeShirley Posted May 30, 2003 Share Posted May 30, 2003 Hello everybody, I had my CT/PET at the local freestanding radiology center at about 1:00 this afternoon. The tech wanted to show off his new stuff and asked if I wanted to see my scan. I said sure. Now I'm not a radiologist, but I’ve seen a few PET scans. There it was, a dark black (hot) spot on the scan right where my newfound node is. I can't say whether there is anything else or not. It will take a real radiologist to say that but I guess I already saw more than I wanted to. I came home and called my oncologist's office and asked that he call me as soon as he gets the official report. He should get at least a verbal report this afternoon. I know that they don't like to do this sort of thing over the phone, I don't either but I need to know and I think he'll make an exception for me. I should qualify for second-line chemo, maybe topetecan. I think I'll ask for a biopsy first, just to be sure. The chance of a second remission is awfully slim but I'm not licked yet. I'm stronger than I've been in months, I've got friends and family who give their all for me and I've over 300 on-line friends / prayer buddies. I am truly blessed. God bless us all and guys, pray that I'm a really lousy radiologist. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
