Hey, just an update, they want me to do another spinal tap, to be sure that I don't have any other serious problems developing....... they feel the bone marrow biopsy is a waste of time at this moment. She was of course happy with the PET scan result's, but feel's that I must be diligent and get scans every 3 months for two years!!!!! See said I'm going to light up like a Christmas tree, but it is something that out weighs the risk...... Vinny

    Thanks
    Hi Vinny,
    Thanks for the up-date. Be sure to let us know when you go in for the spinal tap. Is that procedure painful? Sorry about having to go in every 3 months for scans, but if thats what your doctor thinks is best, then thats what needs to be done. I'll be thinking good thoughts for you and of course keeping you in my prayers. Sue (FNHL-2-3A-6/10)

    hey Sue
    Hate to say it, but it is very uncomfortable, the only good thing was the Doc who did it the last time found it quick!!!!!!! It's a lot of pressure, hard feeling to describe! Vinny

    Oh crap!
    Yuk Vinny..
    Ok...I'll be keeping every body part crossed that this doctor finds it fast also. Man...painful procedures just send shivers up my spine, especially after my horrible experience with the BMB. Let us know how it goes and prayers are headed your way.

    I wish this were over for
    I wish this were over for you. Check in every now and then, and you've really had a rough go of it. Thinking about these tests are almost as bad as having them. I can feel your pain, hope it's over fast.

    How's the cooking going Vinny, and what are you cooking up for Thanksgiving. Barbequed Turkey?? LOL
