OK, I had my PET scan today and peeked at my results this pm.  I have not talked to my oncologist and the report is very long, but, from what I can tell, here is the gist:

1) Resolution of liver cancer (remember last report had 231 cancerous liver lesions).  Liver shows no increased glucose activity usually seen with cancer.  Incredible!!!! :-)

2) Bones all have increased glucose uptake which radiologist believes is caused from neulasta-he sees no new mets there.

3) Lungs looks a little crappy.  My right lung is unchanged (the one that had mets).  Both have small pleural effusions and some possible collapsed lung cells (atelectasis).  I believe (optimistically) that this may be a result of prior heart attack and effect chemo has had on my heart.  Last week, I had significant edema (retained fluid) and shortness of breath.  I called my cardiologist and he put me back on my ace inhibitor (heart drug) and edema is gone and shortness of breath is improving.

I am amazed, blown away by my liver results and, being a little Pollyana-ish, I will focus on those.  My onc visit isn't until July 30th, but I will let you know if I hear any differently.  :-)

That is what we like to see!  I would be a little Pollyanna also.
