Heard from the onco today and he said I'll have my first post-treatment PET scan "around" June 24. I'm a little nervous, but we'll deal with the outcome appropriately when we know it.

I hope and pray that it will be a good report.

Take care my friend

Soldier on Mick. Stay positive. I'll be throwing everything positive in that I can as well.

Hey Mick,

How's everything man? Improving for you I hope. Don't worry about the scan as it is more of a working point scan than anything else. Gives them a starting point. I was flat told it will probably show some hot spots. But I had mine last week and the tech said he didn't see anything to be worried about. Hang in there man.

Keep busy, and try not to get anxious! All our prayers are with you, and you'll do fine!

Hi Mick,

It's perfectly normal to be anxious, especially considering what we have been through. More than likely everything will come back clear and clean.....

God Bless you friend,

It's wrong 25% of the time and it can only get down to 9mm. Why the PET and not a PET/CT? If I remember your primary was unknown? If so you might benefit more from a test that can get down past 9mm?

Ya, you're right it will be a PET/CT.

Holding good thoughts for the outcome of your PET/CT!

Like rick says, it's wrong 25% of the time. And, as I've stated a number of times- the odds are large that even if something "may have shown," it's too post-treatment early for it to be anything other than a false-positive that's something other than C. Trust me- anything that does supposedly show should be held highly-suspect, and

As your ENT or Onco is telling you (hypothetically) that they really do think it's C, you start a stare-down with them. And, when they're done, just kinda raise your voice a little, asking, "So, how in the H--- did you miss that, Doc! You really gotta explain that to me." Yeah- too early, Mick, so it'll be okay.

I think it's quite normal for you to be at the least a little nervous Mick. The test is such a simple thing but of course it's waiting for the results that hurts. I got you in my thoughts and prayers that everything works out great for you. My best wishes to you as well.
