Hi everyone. I had my first follow up doc visits and scans yesterday.
The chemo oncologist, his resident, and the resident of the radiation oncologist said the PET and CT scans looked good. The radiation oncologist though was more guarded. He said he wanted to see how things look in three months.
The radiation oncologist said there were a couple of highlighted areas. He said he could not rule out the areas being cancerous, but he did not think they were.
So...I was very happy at first and then disheartened. While I think the radiation oncologist was just being careful, I'm feeling pretty down today. I was hoping for an "all clear."
He said there was a highlighted area near my prostate. He said it could be an infection. I could not a thorough DRE because I'm still not healed completely. The doc was concerned about that as well. That area was highlighted too on the PET scan, but the docs think it's inflammation.
Essentially, it looks like it's more wait and see.
Like I said, I'm down and feel like I got bad news. Any thoughts?
