Hope you are all doing great today.
I am a little mixed. I'm going to post separately my good news...but here's my worry of the week. Sponge-Bob commented that the more we know...the more questions this creates. Arggh...prime example this week. I double-checked with nurses about the probablity of brain mets...She then told me that it can go to the brain after going to the liver ( I have liver mets). But that first sites are liver, lungs, abdomen and the MEDIASTINUM (the sternum area I think). I'm now a little anxious, because my PET scan showed activity in the mediastinum as well as the liver. One radiologist said that they didn't think the mediastinum was anything. But after hearing that it is a common site of mets, I'm of course concerned. Anyone out there had this experience? I've read a lot on hear, of course, about how PET scan results are not 100%. But just would like to learn about anyone who has had mediastinum problems.
Thanks so much,
