Hi all, just got home from my appt. with the surgeon. He had a copy of my PET report and the scans. On the phone, the Oncologist had said that they looked "normal". The report actually showed some uptake at the old cancer site on the base of my tongue and in the tonsil on that side. Surgeon was a little irritated I think because we didn't wait 6 months for PET. His exam today, scope and palpation of everything was all good from his perspective, CT all good, just the PET. He called another Doc and and discussed on the phone and they both agreed it was nothing to get worked up about but I am not sure how I am feeling right now. My wife reassured as did Doc that if it was something that needed to be acted on, I would be scheduled right now for biopsies and tonsilectomy. Anyways, has anyone else had this kind of news on their first PET. Did Onco say normal because he's seen this before? (I see him on the 15th) As always, thanks in advance.
