Just wanted to give an update on my earlier post. My Oncology Radioligist called me today with the results from my pet scan done last week. He started with good and bad news, the anal cancer area that we treated is looking fine, But there is now a spot on your lung that was not there before. I have to say I was devastated, although I know from all the research I have done on cancer, that it is never really gone, just in remission which can and probably will come back at any time or anywhere in your body, still even knowing this I did not expect it to come back so soon. I am going to have to get a lung biopsy done and my Radioligist has already called my Chemo doctor. If the biopsy shows that it is cancer I don't think I will let them do any more treatments, because I watched my younger sister fight her cancer (colon) for about 2 years, it moved to many different places in her body and she kept having surgeries and treatments until it went to her brain and she slipped into a coma and then passed away at 32 years old. She went through so much pain and suffering, I am 63 years old and I don't think I am up for that. Thanks for listening.
