PET Scan Update ๐Ÿถ

I deemed the above quote necessary after my last, depressing post. ย I heard back from my Doctor and she said that my PET scan came back relatively clear, with the exception to the ovary, in which was already a cause for concern, but not certain that it contained disease. ย At this point, both she and the Radiologist think that the ovary merely has cysts from my fertility treatment that took place back in August.

Come Monday, I will have another Doctor’s appointment in which she will then test my tumor markers again, as well as an additional test called, CTC (Circulating Tumor Cells). ย To my understanding, there are very few cancers that the CTC can detect, but Colon Cancer happens to be one of them, lucky for me. ย So, that said, with the additional test, it should provide my Oncologist with further data to determine why the CT/PET scans and the tumor markers are reflecting such varying results.

Needless to say, I was pleased when she advised me that the PET scan did not have me showing like a light bright (remember those?!). ย Anyway, thanks for all of the kind words, support, prayers and love through this whole process, particularly last week as my life reflected that of a wild roller coaster.

New post tomorrow on my experience with The Wellness Community in Phoenix, an affiliate of the Cancer Support Community.

Love,
