Hello friends! I had my first PET scan a week and a half ago, and didn't receive a call back from them, so i figured everything was okay. They called back this morning to tell me there is some metabolic activity on my right ovary, and i have to get an MRI to see what's going on. I tried to get more information out of them, but they always beat around the bush, and never give the up and up. All she would tell me is that the menstrual cycles can cause activity to show up on PET's. I told her i was sterilized from the radiation and don't have menstrual cycles. She just hmmmed, and paused. The pause scared me, and her stumbling over words after that just made it worse. I know i can only get honest answers from all of you, so here i am...does this mean it's most likely cancer? How accurate are the PET scans? Have any of you had a PET light up and it NOT be cancer?
Thank you guys so much!
