January 30, 2014 Sandy’s Full-Body PET/CT Scan Results: No Cancer In Her Body

Sandy had a full body PET/CT scan on January 23, 2014. You can see what this involved by going to this site: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PET-CT

She received the all-clear results on January 30th at an appointment with Dr. Drury the ENT doctor who removed the melanoma tumor from her sinuses.

Dr. Drury and the doctor she has been seeing for her osteomyelitis of the jawbone for the past 13 years (Dr. Tufft) decided she should go to an oncologist at The University of California at San Francisco (UCSF) for a follow-up/second opinion as USCF has a Melanoma Clinic with an ongoing melanoma study.

Sandy's appointment at UCSF is on February 18, 2014.

Dr. Drury told us that since the scan was clear of cancer, the oncologist probably won't recommend that she have chemotherapy or radiation.

This was good news because Sandy doesn't want any of that.
