After a clear ct scan, my PET scan showed a 7mm area lit up on my left groin. Previously my surgeon was estimating T2/3 N1. Obviously this was pretty devastating and all I can do is hold on to the hope that this lighting up is caused by something other than a metastatic lymph node, which would mean stage 4.
I have read in places including the UK that some people at stage 4 have experienced such good response from chemo that they have subsequently been offered surgery, but my GI nurse is insistent that this never happens. Has anyone had experience of this happening, or even heard of anyone that this has happened to.
Thanks in advance for any replies.
