PET-CT: Survey says....

I had my PET-CT scan done today. They basically inject me with radioactive glucose that gets gobbled up by cancer cells. Wherever it glows, bad news. Back in January, I looked like a Christmas tree, and today I'm glad to say that I look like North Korea at night . [Translation: no visible signs of cancer.]

These are preliminary results, and I'll get the full lowdown when I meet with the doc on Monday. Nevertheless, it's definitely the news I wanted to hear. This means I should just need 2 more months of chemo, which is good because I'm not too fond of the stuff.


  1. Justin..that's awesome news!! Just WONDERFUL! :-)
    I hope that Monday's report is complete confirmation of today's results. All the best to you! Andrea O'M.

  2. That's great news! I hope everything continues going smoothly for you :)
