thanks for the information on the PET scan. She had a PET back in March and it was clear. Ths time they did a CT and had just done one 30 days earlier and this time they saw 'something' on the liver they didn't like. she has had a place on the liver that came up between DX and surgery and the surgeon looked at that one himself when opening her up to do the Whipple said it was nothing. So it shows up everytime on the CT's and they know what it is. So we have to assume that they see something else, in fact they said it was a different place. We will meet with all three Dr.s as a group if this shows positive. The oncologist found it and the Surgeon called last night to us he had the CT and agreed to the PET. Mary goes to IU Med and they do it like Mayo where the group acts as a team. Her Surgeon, the radiologist, and the oncologist. Really cuts down on comunication issues. Any of them can get into her file and CTs or blood work through their computer. It usually works. Do they sometimes disagree on methods etc. yes but so far it has worked pretty well.

Well today will tell where we go from here. Also I didn't tell you her tumor markers more than doubled and they have been going up each month I think we have something going on.

Thanks again

Dave in Indy.
