A warm hello to everyone using this site,
This is my first post, although I have used the site often for reference.
I was hoping for some postive feedback for those who have had lymph node involvement, particularly in the para aortic region.
My course of 4 wk chemoradiation with cisplatin followed by 3 x brachytherapy for the 1b2 tumour finished in July and my 3 month MRI scan hasn't shown up anything for concern on this occasion.
I feel like a ticking time bomb as there doesn't seem to be many stories of a non return of cancer when lymph node involvement has occurred. My Oncologist gave me a 70/30 in my favour but the surgeon who removed the lymph nodes was not as positive.
Also, does anyone know why an MRI scan is used rather than PET scan, as surely the PET is more accurate?
Any positives would help me relax for at least the next 3 months.
Hoping with thanks
