I've been scheduled for PET/CT scan Sept 9 (follow middle right-lung lobectomy May 22, stage 1 adenocarcinoma) to check on 2 nodules in upper right lung & 1 in left lung.
Preparation for the scan requires avoiding foods containing sugar and/or carbs. 24 hours prior, Do Not eat: sweets, bread, pasta, cereal, fruit, potatoes, corn, no refined sugar (Splenda o.k.), milk, white rice or white flour.
May eat: meat, fish, cheese, peanuts, black coffee, diet soda, decaffeinated tea (ok with Splenda) water, veggies (except potatoes & corn), but only a few leafy green veggies.
Then Nothing to Eat 6 hrs prior.
In prostate cancer support group I have seen reference to Sugar as fuel for PCa -- of course in addition to Testosterone & wonder if this applies to lung cancer cells as well. Welcome thoughts, comments etc.
