Thanks for the reply, and I agree that just getting some kind of confirmation that the cancer has not spread anywhere else would put our minds at rest. We are learning a great deal of patience through this whole process, nothing happens fast. We just want to know where we are headed. Glad to hear the scan helped put your mind at ease. Good luck and thanks again for your input.
