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)

Good News and Bad News

The good news:
According to the PET/CT:
"No current PET-CT evidence of metastatic disease"
(I am cancer-free!)
The bad news:
According to the PET/CT:
"SKELETON: Currently, there is a diffuse marrow simulation pattern without focal abnormality in the skeleton and consistent with chemotherapy. With regard to the previous lesion at the left humeral shaft, I reviewed the previous exam and that lesion was 14-14.5 cm distal to the humeral head surface, precisely at the level that the MRI was positive and most likely the focus was a metastatic humeral shaft deposit but misregistered due to arm motion between CT and PET acquisitions on the previous exam. "
(This information means that my cancer is stage IV)
