A very brief summary of the past 2 weeks:
7 month post rad/chemo PET/CT scan shows a hot spot at original cancer site on BOT.
I continually inquire about the possibility of 'false positives'.
2nd and 3rd opinions: Scope looks normal, physical exam looks normal, PET/CT looks not good. MRI recommended to confirm PET/CT results.
MRI shows hot spot probably not a tumor and may be a 'false positive'.
I had already come to terms with needing to have the surgery, in fact it was scheduled for next week. With the results of the MRI, the medical team has decided to postpone the surgery. They have scheduled a follow up PET/CT in 2 months. (Each of the 3 Med teams agree on this part) If the 'hot spot' gets bigger, well then surgery is on the horizon.
Needless to say my wife and I are pretty stoked right about now. Cheers
