You know, my mom's symptoms have barely changed since she started chemo in late May. She did great after the Whipple, but the chemo and radiation really took a toll on her and she has never snapped out of it. She did start having a lot more back pain in July at the end of her treatment but they just found a compression fracture so that is likely why (the radiation may have contributed and/or new cancer could be affecting the bone - but none has been identified yet)No new symptoms close to this test. I would request a PET scan since it is much more detailed and if the CT Scan shows anything they should then do a PET scan anyway. Good luck!
