I am 80 and was diagnosed with prostate cancer (Gleason 9) with focal neuroendocrine differentiation when I was 76. I’ve had chemo, radiation and Lupron since that time and am doing ok.
I am going to be due for another PET/CT scan and was wondering if
anyone is familiar with a Gallium-68 PET/CT Scan which was approved 6/1/16?
I just found out about it?
I think this is the scan that my husband was going to get had we gone to Germany to do LU177 therapy. It is a new PET scan where the imaging is much clearer than on all previous scans.
Mel. My brother has just had two Lutetium 177 treatments in Sydney. They have cleared all but one of about 30 mets. Just fantastic. How did your husband fare in Germany? I note at two clinical trials in the USA are recruiting men.
Wow, that's wonderful, Alan.
My husband never did the LU177 therapy. He was going to do it at the beginning of this year for his bone mets. But then we got the scan done that showed mets in the liver - I think they call those poorely differentiated tumors - and they said that LU177 does not work very well for mets in the liver.
Can I ask where your brother's mets were? Were they bone mets?
