[cancer] A confusing development

PET scan today. Results are anomalous with respect to yesterday’s CT scan. To be specific, the mass in my liver did not “light up” the PET. This may turn out to be cause for optimism, but I’m not going there yet. Next step (so far as I know) is still surgery, but we’ll deal with chemo based on the pathology reports.

Much to think about.

    Oh what does that mean Jay. Is it really possible that on further investigation the ‘olive’ mass on your liver is not there – or maybe not something to worry about? Oh I pray to the God(s) that it is not.

    Healing energy being sent – now and always.

    You must feel like a yo-yo! As always, we lurkers support you and are hoping for the best.

    Maybe it’s a REAL olive. You drank a martini, and your stomach, disgusted at the break from your normally healthy behavior, had a tantrum and tossed the whole thing to your liver. Have them look for a toothpick.

    Fingers and toes crossed, Mr Lake.

    I’ll be optimistic for you, along with, I’m sure, several thousand other people who have never met you but know you through your writing or blog.
