Saw my oncologist Tuesday. She told me my PET scan showed no evidence of disease in any organs or even bone (not even where the previous met was seen in T-12)! Yippee! BUT, she did say one lymph node in the affected side did show uptake and was enlarged. However, she said she was 99% sure it was probably swelling left over from my mastectomy on 10/10. I told her I didn't even know I had any lymph nodes left--surgeon took out 23 when I had my lumpectomy almost 3 years ago. She said she would send the PET scan results over to my surgeon, but as far as she was concerned it was all good.
Well, my surgeon's office called me today. He has reviewed the PET, read the report and wants to see me in his office next week to "talk to me." Hmmmmm. Don't know what that means, but I'm thinking, can't be good.
Anyway, a brief feeling of elation only to be once again dashed with feelings of fear and doubt. I hate this crap.
