Good day everyone!
For the past several months my boyfriend has been sick and lost nearly 40lbs. After numerous ER and Doctor's visits he was finally admitted into the hospital where he stayed for 2 1/2 weeks. The doctors advised us his blood shows signs of cancer (His red blood cells are low and white are normal)and he underwent many test while in the hospital including: CT/MRI scans, biopsies, bone marrow, etc. Long and short is all the test came back normal. They released him on Friday with a "Cancer of unknown origin". We go on Wednesday for a PET scan and will go from there.
So is all this normal? What can we expect from the PET scan? Are there things to look for when picking out a doctor? hospital?
Thanks in advance for your insight....
