I finally had a PET/CT scan two weeks ago. I've only asked for one since I was diagnosed a little over a year ago.
Since my CT and i131 scan came back showing nothing, and my TG count never went down, my Dr finally ordered a PET/CT scan.
I received the results last week and we have finally found the culprit. It wasn’t a matter if I had cancer but where it was located. Dr said it is in a handful of lymph nodes and a 2cm area near my windpipe (the windpipe area makes me a little nervous).
Dr discussed my results with the other Dr’s in the office and they decided that the i131 would not work since it didn’t take up any during the last scan, and they are on the fence if I should have another surgery. Soooooo…. they are sending me to MD Anderson in Houston.
But the really good news is that it has not traveled outside of the neck area!
Has anyone on here ventured to MD Anderson? Or had this cancer near their windpipe?
