Hey friends! I had an appt with my oncologist today and they did a CT scan of my lungs which was clear. During the physical exam he palates a small spot under my jaw that is probably just scar tissue, but some of you may remember me posting that my husband and I are trying to conceive our second child. So, in light of that, my oncologist ordered a pregnancy test and if that comes back negative I will have a PET scan just to make sure that spot is scar tissue and not another tumor or a lymph node.
I have never had a PET before. What should I expect. The girl that scheduled me said that I shouldn't have any close contact especially young children for at least 24 hours afterwards. Is that true? I have an 18 month old so I'm not sure how that will work. Any pointers on the pre scan diet? Any other info you wish you would have known before you had one??
