Sandra,

Thank you for your response and comments. I'm not scheduled to meet with my surgeon anymore. I'm healed from the surgery, so there's nothing else for him to do. However, I did e-mail him and tell him about the newest scan and asked him to review and give me his opinion. He's out of town until next week, but said he'd look when he gets back.

I already have copies of my test results and pathology. Thinking after this round of tests I'm going to try to get a second opinion, hopefully with an oncoloist who specializes in NET.

I had an octreoscan a month after my surgery, but never before. They said the O-scan after the surgery showed no signs of cancer, which was in March of this year. How often do you get these scans? Tomorrow is my MRI, I'm anxious and nervous, hopefully there's an explination for everything, but I'm prepared to be told the cancer is back.

Thanks Again, Christine
