Brandon got the results of his PET scan this morning, and it wasn’t what we were hoping to hear. The surgical oncologist said he did see some metabolic activity in the peritoneal membrane that looked to be thickening. He can’t be positive that it is a recurrence of the cancer, but he can’t be positive that it’s not. He is placing a call to the oncologist Brandon saw in New York to get his opinion on what the next steps should be. He said the doctor in New York has more experience with treatment protocols for peritoneal mesothelioma, and he wants to discuss it with him before making any further plans. He’s placing the call and sending a copy of the PET scan today, and he hopes they can confer by Friday. If treatment is recommended, we don’t know if that will be in Kansas City or in New York. He will call Brandon as soon as they decide where we go from here.
Please continue sending your prayers!
