A second 'Whole-body PET scan' was performed on Friday, September 19. The primary reason for the scan was to see if any of the melanoma cancer was restaging through any parts of my body. The scan was also compared to the readings of a previous PET scan performed on May 13, 2014. At this time, there is no indication of metastatic cancer or pathologic lymph node enlargement within my neck, chest, abdomen, pelvis, or bilateral lower extremities. Now, we just have to wait on the results for the brain MRI.
I am currently in week 38 out of a 59-week treatment of chemo injections (given to me on Monday, Wednesday and Friday each week). The last injection should be administered on January 2, 2015, which by the way, is Teresa's birthday.
