I finished my RCHOP chemotherapy (six treatments) on October 30th. Now I am set to have a PET scan, MUGA heart exam, and echocardiogram. I saw my oncologist on November 15th and he wants the PET scan four weeks from the time I saw him. The scan is scheduled for December 18th and the other two exams for December 20th. The oncologist chose six treatments instead of eight because my last PET scan showed a remission situation.
My question is how soon after the end of chemotherapy is the PET scan usually performed? I thought it would be sooner but apparently not in this situation.
