Post colorectal cancer pet scan showing spot on liver

Posted by minabird @minabird, Jun 12, 2018

I am 6 months post colorectal cancer surgery. I had my follow up PET scan and there is an area showing on my
Liver. I had the same thing prior to my surgery and an MRI showed nothing. I am having another MRI next week. I am concerned that this continues to appear on the PET. Has anyone else had this happen?

Hello Jackie,
Sorry I’ve been so long to respond. I am currently done with 4 of 12 chemo treatments. I have 1 every other week. This is considered a spread of my colon cancer. It is only one spot and very small. My oncologist has had good success with the chemotherapy I am on. I am tolerating pretty well and am continuing to work on the days I feel good. I will have another pet CT after my 6th treatment. Hope all is well with you. ~Mina

@minabird Good to hear from you. I am happy for you that they caught this early. Being able to treat early is very good. That's great the chemo is successful..
I am good just had my six month check too. I have to have another scan in 6 months one rouge lymph node grew a tiny amount. So back to 6 month scans. Ugh…Otherwise the tests were good.
I will pray the rest of your treatments go smoothly too.
You take care my friend and I will check with you again in soon..
God Bless

Hi Jackie,

I had amazing PET scan results! Nothing showing!!!! 🙏🏻🙏🏻After a 3 week break from chemo (and lots of labs) at my Doctor’s suggestion, I will finish out all 12 the chemo treatments per the protocol. 4 left to go, I will be finished at the end of January. How are you doing??
