PET scan results

I am writing this today with a broken heart. My husband had his CT scan and now on 19th had his PET scan. The PET scan showed more than the CT. The PET scan showed hot spots with the liver, pancreas, a vein connected to the liver and two nymph nodes in his pelvic area. This is so sad since the CT showed that his liver went from 50-60 lesions on his liver to 5 and the pancreas is continuing to shrink. Looked so positive till yesterday when we got the results of the PET scan. We have an appointment with his oncologist on Tuesday. With nymph node involvement wondering if were going to hear those words "there is nothing more we can do".

We are so upset by this. My husband is eating good and gaining weight. Looks good. No pain. We were so possive and have had the rug pulled out from under us. He is my life and why this? I find myself feeling so angry right now. I just don't know what else to do....

Just sending caring supportive thoughts and hugs to you both.  I can only imagine how blindsided you must feel.
