Pet Results
Hello Everyone, I hope all of you and yours are doing well and have enjoyed the summer as fall is upon us...YIPEEE!!!! I love fall. I had chemotherapy cycle #4 today and talked with Dr. Essig about the results of my PET CT that was ran on September 15. The tumor shows significant shrinkage, the suv rate (metabolic rate) is down from 15.8 in May to 7.6 in September and for the first time the lower lobe site of the tumor contains air bronchograms ( has air moving through it. Dr. Essig said this is wonderful news and we are maintaining treatment on the same schedule for at least 3-4 more cycles. I will be scheduled for another PET Scan after December 15. Well, gotta run for now. God Bless all of you and thank you for all your support and prayers!!! Dena
