got the PET scan results

got a call this morning about the PET scan results. Dr. Dragon said there was ‘abnormalities’ in my lower abdomen, hips, pelvis, something like that (he said one, not a list like that) don’t know what the actual word was he used but ya, down there, where there previously had never shown anything. We don’t know what it is yet, if it’s hodgkin’s or something new. Have an appointment on Thursday with him to see if he can feel anything. I ask how do we find out and he said do a biopsy.

Probably know a little more on Thursday.

    ya, I have no idea what else could create those symptoms. There has to be other things it could possibly but I don’t know what that is. Also, not sure what exactly an ‘abnormality’ can entail. I did have a hernia operation in like 2003 or something, so it’s possible what they saw was scar tissue from that. Don’t know how likely that is, but it’s at least possible.

    Like I said, hoping to know a little more on Thursday (though obviously won’t be definitive until I get a biopsy if that’s what ends up being done, which probably will).

    Well, stating the obvious, but keep us posted. I do appreciate when you update on the forum as well, I know you have auto updating but geez do I get a lot of email already. Not that yours isn’t important of course.

    You’re not supposed to eat the bone with the turkey.

    turkey bones… did I miss something?

    Well, your blog jumped from August to late November so I figured you had some turkey bones this past ThanksGiving. (joking of course)

    Besides, PET Scans are only used on pets… or people who have eaten them.
