PET Scan CLEAR!

Great news. My first PET scan after treatment is clear! I am so happy. Doc said its all gone... nothing left and they don't even want to do another follow up PET scan. He said just a little inflammation at the bladder from the radiation. That's it. I will talk to my oncologist... looks like every doctor is different as to what they do or not for follow up CT/PET. I do have another scope scheduled for June.

I am so happy. For me this truly was and still is a wake up call. What 3 months... that changed my life. I quit my job, took time with my 2 year old son and went to see family in Europe with my husband. Now, only part time work and a meaningful life. I am thankful for these wonderful results and for all of you having helped me through this. I can't thank you all enough.

Congratulations on your clear scan results! I'm so very happy for you and I know the relief you are feeling right now. It's great that you have been able to make some adjustments in your life to allow more time for the things that really matter. I think cancer, at least in my case, pushes us to simplify our lives, which I think is how it should be all along. I hope every day is rewarding for you and I wish you all the very best!

I totally agree. Cancer pushes us to think about what is truly important.

Great news! This gives hope to us all. Your right about being a wake up call for me it sure was. I had been a 35 year smoker and kept asking god to help me quit. Well with the anal cancer dx that did the trick. Of course, I would have rather quit without the cancer, but probably wouldn't have. I feel better now than I have in the past 10 years.

I wish you continue clear scans and exams. Lori

Congratulation on your results and on your decision. I look back at my life now and wish I did that when my kids were younger. I feel I missed so much by working full time. My daughter in law is staying home with her 1 year old, even thought my son doesn't make a great deal of money, they thoght raising their baby at home was more important than having a new car every two years. Enjoy your life and your family, take care, I am happy for you.
