I met with Dr. Coffman Thursday June 19th for a routine follow up exam and to gather results from my PET scan. My PET scan test came back with some activity around my clips and lymph nodes where they removed the other nodes (Clips were used in place of sutures at the surgery site). Dr. Coffman says he is not alarmed by my numbers. He said cancer numbers would throw up 8.X to 15.X and my numbers were 2.5. He believed these figures could just be inflammation still from radiation.
With that said, we will follow up with another PET scan in 6 months (Dec time frame). I see Dr. Coffman again in 4 months (Oct) for a routine follow up and at that time we will schedule the next test.
I apologize for the short update, but I'm still trying to wrap my head around having any numbers at all. I truly expected to hear.."Everything looks great!" after having a clean mammogram. I know I shouldn't be concerned, I know God is still in control.
I believe Lord, help my unbelief.
