Pet Scan is coming up for our loved one and we are seeing the doctor right after it's completed. Will we get the results immediately or is this something that takes days/weeks to get completed?
We just got the neck and base of tongue cancer diagnosis 2 weeks ago and are anxiously awaiting for results to assure us that the cancer has not affected any other areas. His ENT believes it is "Regional", but sure that is up to the next doctor to determine this.
Still so many unanswered questions. What stage is it, is it anywhere else, who do we meet with next, when, and what treatment(surgery, rad, chemo), and when does it start? They say to take one day at a time, and as a caregiver, that's what I'm trying to stay focused on and encourage our loved one to do the same...but boy is it tough. But, through it all I still feel an inner peace that all will be fine.
