I met with my oncologist and here are my PET scan results:

"Decreased glucose hypermetabolism within the right 8th rib. Stable sclerosis within the 6th and 12th ribs, WHICH ARE NO LONGER HYPERMETABOLIC." (caps are mine ;-)

In English, this means the 8th rib has less cancer activity and that the other 2 ribs are showing now showing none (but of course have scarring and are "sclerotic").

This was way better than anything that I could imagine. On the last scan (2009) all 3 ribs were hypermetabolic.

The oncologist has no idea why my markers are up, but he feels that I am responding well to my therapy. He doesn't want to change anything and he just wants to repeat my labs in 4 months. Yippee! A 4 month reprieve!

I credit my Kindreds with all of this happy news. I know that you all for sure kept me emotionally stronger and I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!
