Sounds like good news to me.

My thought regarding what the doctor said would be that sometimes tumors die but the tissue is still there. This has recently happened to a little boy I know going through kidney cancer. He was inoperable so they did pre-surgery chemo to shrink the tumors. While physically, they didn't look any different, they were actually dying off and they were able to go ahead with surgery Feb 14. Maybe this is the case for you too. I pray that you will have great PET results and that surgery is a go.

Wow, your CEA decreasing is wonderful and I think your scan results are as well. I bet the tumors are dying and the PET will show that.

Hugs,

good news! great!!!Wishing you a clear PET . Maybe they just want to remove them to be sure. However , I think that even if PET shows uptake and they shrunk enough, surgery is still a possibility. At least that is what we were told.? God Bless
