Question, How accurate are pet/ct scans?
When they discovered the cancer back in 2010, they did a byopsy (spelling) came back negative., but she said since the area was so small she expected that . When had a pet/Ct scan in June it showed everything was gone. Now had another pet/ct scan shows "Activity". (what ever that means) she said that a byopsy will need to be done but start on chemo which is only a 28 to 38 % chance of working. Prior to the pet/Ct scan I have been working out alot and the night before the scan i got sick (did not mention this due to the fact figured it was just nervous) after the scans i have been fever and achy flu like systoms. Just today am feeling better.
When I asked her if the cancer was back all she kept saying was there was activity.
I am frustrated that she is only giving me the option of chemo (again) and nothing else, if you all could please help me to understand this.
Should I get another opinion? I am so scared.
