PET SCAN

I noticed several people asking about the timing of PET Scans. Does this apply to radiation only or chemo? My husband is finishing a regimen Oxaliplatin/Hercepton/Zeloda on March 25th. He will return to Houston for an appt/scans on April 11th. Do you think this is a problem?  Too soon? He is Stage IV so its not based on whether he can have surgery but just to see the effectiveness of the treatment.  However, it is a long way to go if the results would not be reliable.

I too was confused about timing for Petscan. My father finished chemo 1/7/13 and radiation 1/10/13. He had pet 2/22/13 and it showed a lot of inflammation.  I've learned it was from the radiation.
