Have some PET scan results on my husband who was stage III in 2011, mets to live and lymph nodes in 2016-17. Increasing pain, weight loss, and increasing tumor markers. PET results ~ I thought FDG uptake showed activity, however the report says no evidence. While I am excited for this, It feels too good to be true based on how he feels. :Head/Neck: No abnormal FDG activity within the head/neck. Physiologic FDG activity is identified in the pharyngeal musculature, tonsils, and salivary glands. Abdomen/Pelvis: Physiologic FDG activity is identified in the genitourinary tract and bowel. No metabolically active abdominal or pelvic lymphadenopathy. Anastomotic sutures in the hepatic flexure. No recurrent disease is appreciated.
IMPRESSION:No evidence of recurrent or metastatic disease.
He had to stop Avastin in January due to a stroke. He is now on Xeloda alone. Dosing is 7 on and 7 off due to side effects.
