I had a 6 month PET scan and the doctor called and said everything looks good. Nothing to be concerned about. It was a relief. I wish everyone the best and continue to pray for us all.

Great to hear "nothing to be concerned about". Think I'll celebrate with a bowl of sugar - I mean, cereal. Keep it up.

This will be the first of many "cleans", I hope. Very, very, happy for you.

DogsRule --- Bravo on your all clear & prayers that you stay that way.

Mikey's PET was clear too in Oct 09 so he is now a little past 4 yrs from original diagnosis in 06. Anybody know if he is supposed to have PET annually after he got a clear? Just asking, as he went to new head&neck specialist last Fri here in Chlt NC and doc did physical exam only ...... didn't order any blood work,x-rays, etc. Since Michael was coming in as brand new patient to him, I was suprised that he then proclaimed Michael "cancer free." We were all very elated! But I was also confused. Can Dr. really be sure just from look & touch? Have nagging doubt about "uninsured" stat influencing what tests are given. Is this the norm & I'm being paranoid? Hope I'm wrong & this is entirely normal. I let the dr know that Michael has jaw-back-leg pain etc and has heavy persistent cough. Doctor recommended we get him a primary care physician lined up and sent us on our way.

Could be an insurance issue, or just differing MD opinions. I believe that mine plans on doing one a year for at least the first five years....but then I also never really asked specifically.
