So a few weeks ago I had posted a question about Pet Scan results because I had an area "light" up during a follow up scan.

This was after a colonoscopy that showed nothing.

So, just to be sure I went for an ultrasound with the potential for a biopsy if something abnormal appeared.

Well.....no biopsy...because the ultrasound looked great! The radiologist was able to confirm that the lit up area is likely due to pre-surgery radiation therapy and scar tissue still going through the healing process (after a year)....

so time to breathe a sigh of relief...

cheers,

    That's wonderful news!! I'd go out and celebrate more than once over that kind of news :)

    Since you mentioned that the radiologist figures the lit up area on your scan was due to radiation therapy and the scar tissue still going through the healing process, I am going to bring this up to my doctor tomorrow to see if that might be a possibility with me too. My adrenal gland (over the kidney) lit up on a PET scan. Now, I know I have a growth/tumour on the adrenal gland but I have had it for over 7 years so it has been benign all these years. But I did have radiation that they zapped from the top, the side and the back... so :::keeping fingers crossed::: maybe the radiation hit this area and that's what is causing the light up.
