Hi all: I had a PET several weeks ago which indicated a possible reoccurance in two more lymph nodes in my neck. The PET had been preceeded by an ultrasound which showed the same concerns.
My Tg levels are at about 4.5 - I had my last round of RAI last May...
AFter consulting with my endo and surgeon, we felt the best option was to remove the nodes, and possibly do external beam radiation.
However - the pathology report on all the nodes taken - he took about a dozen - was CLEAR. He is an extremely competent surgeon, and even had the nodes marked using ultrasound before my surgery to make sure he got exactly the right ones.
Naturally I'm really happy at this news, but of course have the lingering doubts.....was the scan wrong.....He believes that PET scans can give false reading for thyroid cancers.
Anyone have any advice? Feedback? Similar experiences? Love to do a happy dance right now........
