I have all my follow up scheduled, but won’t know anything for a week. I’m terrified that because it was bleeding that it will be later stage. I’m also terrified that I’ll have to give up my job as a mental health therapist due to this. Any support or advice would be appreciated.

I had a pet scan that came back clear (except for my tumor), no spread to other organs. Is it still possible I could be staged at a four? I know I’ll find out more later this week, and even more after surgery, but just wanted a general understanding of what a clear pet scan means in the bigger picture. Thank you!!!
