Well....first post-treatment CT/PET Monday morning. Hope it to be good !!!

Last scan two months or so ago showed 60% tumor reduction, but no change in lymph nodes.

We will see !!!!

    Good luck Monday
    Thinking of you tomorrow Dave.

    Are you having a CT or PET?

    Question on the tumor and lymph nodes from your last test.... My wife's tumor shrunk quite a bit at her first scan since her scans at diagnosis. The onc said the tumor shrunk but that it was a different type of CT so they could not tell about a change in lymph nodes. Is it possible that yours was the same situation? I know different oncs and different facilities have slightly different procedures.

    Again, good luck.

    PET
    Thanx NayPaul.....it was a PET scan, I was in the machine for 40 minutes and it scaned waist to eyelids I....I get the machines confused!
    I have a CD of the scan but cant open it due to needing some software I do not have loaded and it's not free!.
    I will wait to hear results.

    Ironically, my Dad had his 1st post-2nd line treatment scan for Lymphoma yesterday as well.

    I will keep all posted.
