I just had my 3rd PET scan the first week of June. Everything is looking good and getting smaller.
About two weeks after the PET I noticed a very sharp pain in my left rib area. The type of pain that keeps you from sneezing it hurts so bad.
I mentioned it to my oncology nurse who said she would ask the Doc to request a bone scan.
I thought a PET could detect it in the bones. Am I wrong about that? If I am I wonder why I haven't had a bone scan before.
I was diagnosed stage 4 last June with mets to the skin and to the pleura.
