I am just wondering if I pay for a pet scan would that show if I have peretoneal cancer or should I just have exploratory surgery? My gyn said come back in 3 months since the abdominal/ pelvis MRI, tv ultrasound and tumor markers were negative. She said that pelvic free fluid on an MRI of the pelvis is NOT considered ascites and that the follow up tv ultrasound is superior for fluid and that showed a minimal amount which is normal?
Three months could mean stage 2 to stage 4. I don't know what to think! Her associate said you could have oc or ppc and have normal tests. Seems every dr says something different! How quick does this disease progress?? Will I notice something more in a short time?
Im so confused!!! :-(
