@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.

Thanks for your quick response. I bet it had a lot to do with clean lymph nodes. They only took two.

I asked for a pet scan after my first chemo treatment. It turned out my partial mastectomy wasn’t healed needed to be packed for two months. Then I could continue with 5 more treatments and radiation. I was very concerned.
