Topic: Great news/pet scan

Just wanted to share the good news.My dad had his second PET scan since starting chemo 6 months ago.Since chemo started his mass has shrunk from 8.9cm to 5.3.very happy with that.They will present it to the surgical board again.He may still not be a candidate for surgery but the oncologist wants to try.The oncologist is amazed at the good response to chemo!!

Kathy, we love amazing! Perhaps if it shrunk that much it will shrink even more making surgery an option. Thanks forthe good news and please keep it coming!

Re: Great news/pet scan

Kathy....this is significant shrinage your Dad has accomplished.  We have seen it on this site for debulking of the tumor allowing for subsequent surgery.  I am crossing my fingers for your Dad to have this option also.
All my best wishes,
Marion
