I had completed two rounds of chemotherapy now and this was to tell us how active the tumor was, how effective the chemo was, and if it was spreading. My Mom and Dad and I were praying for a miracle that the tumor would be gone. I didn't want to undergo any more chemo.
The results came back. It was still there. Depressing. They said "Despite the size and bulkiness of this tumor, the amount of FDG uptake appears to be mild." I took that to be good and that we were making some progress. Dr. Alter told me I would have to undergo two more rounds of chemotherapy and then a round of radiation.
