I posted after my 3 month post treatment PET scan to say some cells had lit up on the lip of my cervix. 6 weeks later I had an MRI and yesterday heard that there is no evidence of disease. Yay! I’m massively relieved as the wait has been stressful, but glad my consultant was thorough and investigated the cells. Apparently the dye take up was probably continued radiation activity and there’s a non-cancerous cyst visible, but it’s a type common in young women (I did query that, as I’m 41, but apparently I still qualify). There haven’t been any growths or anything else appearing and they compared all my many scans of various types since diagnosis. There is a MDT meeting today, so I’m hoping no one spots anything or suggests further investigation, but my consultant seemed confident. So, I’m now on 3 monthly check ups at the clinic with scans only if there’s a concern.
I know a couple of others had iffy 3 month scans post treatment, so hopefully this is reassuring. The consultant did reiterate that scans are so sensitive nowadays - which is great for diagnosis and treatment, but can throw up things that then need investigation. I knew this before, but like everyone find it hard to ‘hear’ the rational stuff amidst the panic.
