Results from PET/CT look great

Tunadog Member Posts: 235 Member

I just got the results from my PET/CT Scan and it’s good news.

No spread and only thickening of soft tissues in the presacral space, unchanged in size and decreased hypermetabolic activity.

My Oncologist indicated I would not need another scan for a year. 

Not NED but PFS (progression free survival). And my Neuropathy is almost resolved. Still on maintenance chemotherapy.

    Xeloda and Avastin

    Avastin infusion every three weeks with two weeks of 3500 mg Xeloda.

    Then a week off, that’s my Maintenance Chemotherapy

    That is wondering news.  It's nice not having to face another scan just right around the corner.  Sounds like you are doing very well and doctor is happy with scan.  Great news.
