I got my PET SCAN results back and the results were mixed. Doctors are fairly certain that the odd area left in my lung after Cyberknife radiation treatment is not cancer but is most probably a type of radiation damage combined with a slight limited type of radiation induced pneumonia. That’s the positive news.
My liver area of the PET SCAN shows a very small abnormality that the doctors are questioning. It does not yet show up as cancer but they think it may be a starter area for metastatic cancer. The plan is to do a MRI on Christmas Eve and take a good look at the liver to see what’s up. Maybe its nothing and that result would work for me. A biopsy would be the next step followed by liver surgery if the MRI shows that the area is some type of cancer trying to start a foot hold.
I have a mild dislike of visiting any type of doctor because they always seem to find some new problem I didn’t know about before the visit. I suppose that’s their job and somebody has to do it. Cancer is certainly inconvenient but it’s a privilege to live in a country that has access to medical care for me because there are lots of people that do not have access. I put all situations in God’s hands and that gives me comfort. God is capable of dealing with anything and I have been in worse situations.
