Test Results

So I thought I would share the PET scan results. I had the PET scan done on Thursday and expected to get the results on Friday. However my oncologist’s office closed at 3 and they still didn’t have the results. I called my breast surgeon who I knew could get the results. What I got was so not expected and I am still not sure how to react. The scan shows that my lower back is unchanged. So where I am having the pain there is no cancer and now I don’t have an answer to why I have so much pain. However I had some spots show up where there were none before. I have new spots on my left ribs (which was not the side that hurt before) on my upper spine, and on my shoulder bone. These didn’t show up on the bone scan done 2 months ago.

I am not sure what to feel about these new results. On one hand they could be nothing. Often times PET scans show false positives or some sort of damage. On the other hand it could be cancer. Now from what I understand cancer would hurt and I have no pain in these areas. The course of treatment (if I had pain in those areas) would be radiation. I still need to figure out why my lower back is painful so the doctor ordered a MRI of both the upper and lower spine. I don’t have a date for the MRI so I will let everyone know when I find out. Please pray that these spots are nothing.
