Group, I just got results from a PET scan and need your help.
When the doctor gave me the results he said, "the scan shows activity but maybe its just leftover radiation." I find that hard to believe and feel he is sugar coating the results. My family is thinking maybe it is swelling, tissue, throat irriation. Do you believe any of that could be true? Please give me your honest opinions as you are the only ones who truly know what I'm going thru. I have to admit I am scared to death! I go back to the ENT tomorrow and I will worry myself sick until then.
By the way, I was diagnosed with vocal cord cancer in Aug., did 35 treatments of radiation, with the last treatment being on 10/22/09. Been recovering since. I greatly appreciate your reply postings.
Thank you all in advance for your help and knowledge!
