The PET Scan Results

The PET Scan Results

I met with the pulmonology nurse practitioner today, and the PET scan came back with no new cancer, so I’m officially Stage IIIa. That is very good news in terms of my treatment and prognosis.

After that appointment, I went to see the radiation oncologist, where he did a simulation with contrast. Essentially this is a simulation of radiation treatment to mark my body position and location to target the cancer. They gave me four small black dot tattoos that mark those locations.

I start radiation next Wednesday afternoon, and we’ll schedule the rest that day. Tomorrow I meet with the medical oncologist to plan the chemo treatments. More soon!
