I begged for a PET scan and they think I was silly. IBC stage 3.

@mjpayan. More likely they thought it was too expensive. That attitude pervades, unfortunately. My docs insisted on a pet scan before my surgery. They told me it was the only way they could tell how widespread the cancer was. Please advocate for yourself and find someone who sees the worth and is willing to do it.
