I just finished 12 rounds of Folfox 2 weeks ago. I thought everything was good...the dr said my ct scan was fine ... I did have 2 lesions on my liver and one on a kidney...but he said he wasn't concerned about them. Today I got a call from the drs office ... Apparently he rereviewed the scan and is concerned about the liver lesions. He is scheduling me for an MRI... Next week. I am really concerned about this... I was hoping for Ned. I had an appointment with the dr for 3 weeks from now...just a check up and to discuss getting a ct scan in march? I asked about a pet scan but he did not think it was "better" than a ct scan. I think now I am going to push for the pet scan. I want to know if there is any lymphatic activity...I had 4 out of 18 test positive for cancer in my surgery in June of 2012. I am worried that this liver activity will make me a stage 4.... I have signet ring cell cancer which is more aggressive and harder to treat. After my surgery they told me that they got it all and the chemo was just a mop up to get any stray cells.
