Well i had my 2nd post chemo PET scan today. My first post chemo PET scan was not so good with an SUV=8.9. I was obviously devastated by my last PET scan. My doctors told me it was probably inflammation and to retest in 2 months. I went to my Oncologist today and he told me my CANCER IS GONE!! SUV=0! I am living proof that if you do your PET scan too soon after chemo that you run the risk of false positives, even if the uptake is higher than a 3. I have always heard that an suv # above a 3 is highly suspicious of cancer. I hope that anybody who gets a positive PET scan post chemo can still have hope that it is a false positive and just inflammation or scar tissue. God is good!
