Diagnosed Stage II in October 06, immediate surgery followed by 28 radiation treatments and 12 chemo treatments. Small bowel blockage one year later at site of original surgery. 3rd resection in December 2007 with temp ileostomy. Ileostomy "Max" reworked in Feb 08 and reversed in March 08 with Port removed. Three PET scans since, all three have lit up at the port site as well as the ostomy site. Each time, the area has been larger. With this last scan, my Oncologist said that it was imperative that I have a ultrasound of left chest and breast due to avid soft tissue density as well as a mammagram of both breasts. I also have to see my surgeon and gastrologist. She did not give any indication as to why but you could see "concern" written all over her face. I see the surgeon this afteroon, breast ultrasound and mammagram not until the 27th and I haven't heard from gastrologist. Has anyone else experienced this?
