18 months NED

i did a PET scan in singapore last week. had a scare as it showed a hot spot where my original cancer was. we did a endoscopy and also an ultra sound endoscopy and concluded it was acid reflux and not cancer recurrence - what a relief.

the procedures in singapore was incredible efficient. saw the oncologist on wed, did the pet scan the next day, got the results the day after and did the endoscopy the follwing day ie no wait. the cost is about 20% of what i paid in usa.

finally in the past i said i was simply going to do a quarterly blood test, this pet scan confirms to me that i need to do at least an annual pet scan. the comprehensive blood test showed all normal but the pet scan picked up the hot spot.

Congratulations Andy!  I'm glad they were able to resolve the "hot spot" quickly and decide it was not a problem.  Hope everything else is going well for you.  Rick

Great news Andy,

Sounds as if we could all learn something from Singapore.

Stay well,
