On 11/10/10, bone scan showed one met in sacral region. Started HT 11/26/10, bone scan on 3/24/11 says "foci of increased radiotracer activity in the sacral region has decreased in abnormal foci of radiotracer activity to suggest metastatic osseous disease."  Has anyone else experienced what appears to be a reduced/eliminated met due to hormone therapy and if a met returns, does it come back to the same place?   The Old Sailor

Double check with staff that sounds like there never was a met, but am about 50/50 on that " sounds like " those bane scans pick up anything and they are sometimes read wrong. Im sorry but am with Reagan when it comes to medical issues . Trust but verify. If they dont explain to my satisfaction I keep the pressure on till they do or find some one who will in a straight forward way convince me. Its a narrow line , but its NOT finding someone who will tell me what I want to hear
