I received awesome news today! Dr. Brader called with my PET scan results and there was no metastasis beyond the original lymph node that was removed. This is such amazing news because my chance of no metastasizing was very slim. The spot on the lung from the previous scan did not change and they believe it is due to an old granuloma or fungal infection but nothing to worry about. The area from the original surgery did light up but not as much as the last PET scan. Dr. Brader felt it was because the area is still healing and was recently biopsied. He felt it would have lit up more if it was melanoma rather than less. However, I do need to have another PET scan in three months to check it out. While I wish this area had not lit up, it does not take away from the greatness of this news and definitely calls for celebrating.
