I didn't get the news I wanted to hear today. Both the CT and Pet scans showed an area within my chest is questionable. The Oncologist called me a mystery. Physically, he said I am in remission, but the scans are suspect. He felt that if only one had indicated something, he would be inclined to monitor things. Since both showed up, he has decided to go ahead with the bone marrow biopsy and additional blood tests. I have them tomorrow. My blood levels are up, he is encouraged by those results, my body is producing blood products. He prescribed Folic acid and Chromagen tablets for me to assist in blood production. The news left me a bit unsettled, I have calmed down, have gotten lots of encouragement from family and friends.
