PROJECT: 05-DJC:174.9

This is Deirdre's Breast Cancer Diary. I try to update this blog at least every evening. This is an easy way for me to keep a journal of the experience, and at the same time, I can keep my friends and family up-to-date on what is going on. I find it is not so bad to have cancer, but it is awfully depressing to talk about it. I hope you laugh as you read along. You can find the beginning in February the archives. Thanks again for reading :o)

Spotty on Spot

Interesting news from Dr. Sherman today. He says there is a conflict between the information from the PET Scan and the information from the MRI. Dr. Sherman says it is unclear whether the hyper-metabolism came from the soft tissues in my arm, or from the bone marrow area. YIKES! Mark is going to call Dr. Sherman tomorrow to find out more information, since what I got is a little spotty. I know Mark has better questions for Dr. Sherman. I will ask Mark to help me update the blog with the info from Dr. Sherman. What I do know is that the treatment (the chemo and the radiation) will probably not change...maybe just another zap with radiation specifically at that spot in my arm after chemo & radiation is done...some time in October. This, of course, after another sets of tests to see if the hyper-metabolism still exists after the treatment(s).
