I think we might be done?

Well, I just got the Radiology report from Kadlec from the PET scan. I didn't know they were going to send it to me. I have a Dr. Kris appointment tomorrow so I thought I would just hear the report from him. But they sent it to me. So I am going to give you the report in full. We will see what Dr. Kris says tomorrow and what Dr. Rado says the first week in June. Anyway here is the Radiology report....

The previous extensive metastatic disease visualized on the scan of 10/09/07 has all completely resolved. There is no evidence of malignant FDG uptake noted in the left axilla, left neck, or mediastinum. All previous malignant uptake in the left breast has resolved in addition, the nodular masses throughout these regions have completely resolved on CT imaging. Liver uptake is now uniform and normal and the prior low attenuation defects on CT images on the liver have resolved.

Prior bone metastases of T6, T9, T11, L2 and L4 show sclerotic healing. The prior lesion on the C5 vertebral body does not show any healing sclerosis. The prior left ilial and ischial metastases show healing sclerosis as well. There is peresistent chronic pars defects of L5, without subluxation.

There is physiological uptake in scalene muscles of the lower neck. There is physiolgic uptake of the FDG in the pharyngeal lymhoid tissues, muscles of the floor of the mouth, and salivary glands. There is some physiological uptake in the sigmoid colon and uterus, not malignant. There is some minimal uptake in teh region of the nipples of both breasts, a phsiological occurrence.

Conculusion
1. There has been complete resolution of the prior widespread metastatic neoplasm. Furthermore, all of the nodular soft tissue disease of the chest and abdomen has resolved on CT images. Bone metastases now show sclerotic healing.
2. There is no obvious active malignant disease at present in the range of the scan.

So can you believe that!! I think that means everything is gone. There are a few questions. But I think I am done with all chemo treatment!!!!! That is so good my hair is coming back in and I didn't want to have to start over again. It has been 7 or 8 weeks off chemo and the hair is finally coming in. I really didn't want to start over. YAH!!!
