Hello ladies. My PET scan results came back and they are grim. I have brain lesions, my lung nodules have grown in size and intensity, a spot on my vertebrae lit up and there is a spot that lit up in my liver and pancreas (although no lesion is seen on CT scan.)
I asked to have a PET scan because I was experiencing weight loss, weakness and a tingling sensation on my right arm. Sometimes it would feel like a bolt of electric current would run through it. Then I noticed that my arm was wasting and that there was no perspiration on that arm. Then 3 weeks ago, my right eye started to droop and I also noticed that the right side of my face would not perspire. I consulted a neurologist who diagnosed it as Horner’s Syndrome. Because I have lung Mets, he thought that there might be a lung tumor near the top of the lung pressing on a nerve. But the PET scan findings did not find a lung tumor pressing on a nerve. Instead, there are 3 brain lesions found.
I am scheduled to have an MRI of the brain to find out more details. For those who have undergone gamma knife surgery of the brain or any type of radiation on the brain, I would be very interested in your experiences. I’m not sure if Shoofoo has had gamma knife surgery thrice already. For those experiencing tingling sensations, best to have them looked into. It may be something ordinary like neuropathy but it could also be something else.
Please send me positive vibes and above all, please pray for good outcome of my next fight with cancer.
