Deb, I have been having a test done for quite some time. I get the radioactive dye injection, have to go away for 2 hours and drink lots of water. Then they run the test and the hardest part is staying still for so long. I never knew that was a PET.
And, just to show you about
CT scans, I was told by my onc several weeks ago that they found a spot in my upper left lung. It is too smal to PET and too small to biopsy. I was already depressed when I went to his office and I certainly wasn't feeling much better when I left.
My onc called that night to ask me if I felt suicidal. I told him I had had better times to do that than now. He also told me, now get this, he had gone down to the department that runs the CT, and asked them to line up all of my scans since 96.
I already know about
the tumor on the adrenal, it's been there for years. And, the lung spot has been there for four years. It hasn't changed. But, now I'm back to having the tests every 6 months instead of yearly.
B/c just keeps on giving.
Love You, Jo-Ann
