I went in today for the full body PET/CT scan that my surgeon ordered as a follow up to a suspicious swollen / lobulated node found on my second (MIE 9 months out) follow up scan. The only thing that lit up was the node of concern so it is extremely unlikely that it was a false positive. I’m scheduled for a biopsy this coming Wednesday just for confirmation. The location of the node is considered a distant metastasis and is staged at IV A. To be honest I don’t think my wife or my two children in college have a clue of what is about to happen. Here we go.
