I had my first PET scan after treatment yesterday, and got the results today. There are a few "hot spots" where I had radiation, but no sign of cancer. My doctor called it "a clean scan."

Thanks again to everyone here. This would have been SO MUCH harder without you guys! I know it's the first scan of many but it's a great first step! :-)

It is soooooooo wonderful to read about so many clean PET scans lately! Congratulations Laralyn and I wish you many more (all of them) clean scans in the future! Enjoy the LIFE!

I'm new around here, daughter of a father who is just in the middle of this "cancerous" road and is so inspirational to hear that this treatment really works in the end!

Congrats again!!

Great News. A relief for you and a bit of encouragement (hope) for those of us (like me) whose first PET is still in the near future. Rick.

Your clean scan is a great gift. You earned it through some tough treatment. Thanks for sharing with us. Here's a cheer from the cheap seats on the bus.

YIPPEEEEEEE!!!!

Prayers for continued healing.

Excellent news..., glad your MD assured you that the hot spots are common on first scans, usually related to residual.

Take care and relax a little....

Best,
John
