PET scan results today not so good ... 3 spots lite up in pelvis. Very small and clustered together. 

We have been chasing this since Oct. when at my yearly surgical appointment "something" was felt on DRE. All images to date have shown nothing but possible scar tissue. Today, the PET showed different.  I am so grateful to my wonderful surgeon who has been persistant to find what HE knew was not right. Angels do walk among us.

Biopsy on Thursday.

I think this may be a long summer.

    Sorry

    So sorry that you might be dealing with another issue again but hopefully because of your wonderful surgeon you were able to catch it early.  Hope the biopsy goes well for you and the plan forward is an easy path.

    These recurrences are so hard...

    but I'm really glad they caught it early.  The "watch and wait" mode worked well for me in the long run, as eventually they were able to get on top of the growth (took five surgeries, but that's not much in the overall scheme of things).  I hope this will prove to be the case for you as well!

    Best of luck on Thursday! I hope it goes well and it's an easy fix. I hate the way we have to worry about this forever. I start on regular blood tests and colonoscopies in August. Can't wait...

    biopsy

    You just never know! When I had a bright spot on my lung, my onc ordered a biopy.  Turned out it was from my previous valley fever. 

    Stil NED.   So just expect the best result and don't worry--if you can!

    Long summer?

    I'm sorry to see that you might be headed back into the fray. Will be thinking of you and hoping that Thursday shows that someone left an old piece of chewing gum in there or something else easy.

    LOL John212 ... too funny ..

    LOL John212 ... too funny .. I hope chewing gum!!  Doesn't seem likely .. but I will take it!

    You guys are great!  Thanks so much for the support.

    I am pleased about the early detection, however, I am not thinking anything like an easy fix if test are positive.  I am banking on the IF part of that statement as of right now.  I have been forwarned it will not be anything "easy" to get ... and likely some tough decisions ahead.  But, one day at a time for me!  It is what it is and worrying will not change things at all .. so I will not go down that road.

    More worried about the possible damper on my summer after the long cold winter!

    I will let you all know when I get the results next week.

    I always look at your case

    AA ... I always look at your case and remind myself it can be done.  This will be 3x's for me .. 4th big surgery  (one was a blockage from scaring) ... so things in there are getting rather difficult to work with.
