Hello. Some of you may know my mom's story. My mom had total of 3 surgies for head and neck cancer since 11/2010 plus radiation, no chemio. Anyway after the last surgery in March of 2012 here is the list of what happend:
4/12 MRI post surgury to see if any cancer is left over- something showed but Dr. thinks it is scars post surgury which did not heal yet
5/12 biopsy of that spot came back negative
6/12 PET scan to follow up-something still shows there, Dr. thinks it is post biopsy infection
9/12 CT scan-something still showes there, it is not bigger or smaller, mom doesn't have any sympthoms
10/12-schedules for PET scan, denied by insurance, doctor wants to do another biopsy...
what should we do? wait another 6 weeks or do another biopsy.
This is so hard, with my mom's history it's really tough to think that it is nothing that sowes up there (scar tissue etc) what is your opinion on this?
Thank you so much for you answers. Please know that I'm always thinking about all of you and keep you in my prayers.
