PET SCAN

    Today I was luckey enough to have a PET SCAN.  A positron emmission tomogrophy, PET, uses radiation to show activity within the body on a cellular level.  A nucular tracer is put into the body to reveal how tissues and organs are functioning.  Combine the PET SCAN with an MRI and CT scan and it gives the Doctor a multidimensionl look at the workings of the body.

 Several months ago I underwent Radiation to my L-1 vertebrae.  The PET scan will reveal if the radiation treatments worked.  I pray they did.    PEACE

I have always lived life to the fullest. I have felt great joy and excruciating pain. I have succeeded and failed many times. Some people called me reckless others courageous. None of the views of others mattered until two years ago when I faced death like a Tuesday evening date. I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer. My life changed the moment the words "You have cancer" was spoken. Now everything I do I am conscious of. Please join me on my blog Stage 4 Living Life to the fullest with Cancer. Or my blog Ruby Moonbean Fantacy and Science Fiction. PEACE
