Dr. I have been operated for colon cancer (had about 12 inches removed) just over 3 yrs ago and then a year and a half later had 60% of my liver removed. Monday's PET/CT Scan says in part.' There is a mild thicking of the urinary bladder wall that is stable. Atheromatous changes of the aorta noted. Patient is status post partial hepatectomy. Cardiomegaly once again noted with tortuosity of the thoracic aorta.There are no areas of abnomal FDG metabolism that would suggest recurrent, residual or metastatic disease. CT findings are stable. Should I be happy, sad? XXXXXXX Braga Thank You

Brief Answer:
Nothing much to worry at this stage

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.

I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.

You have gone through a rough phase with resectiom of your colon followed by removal of partof the liver. However your current CT findings donot suggest anything significant. There was no active uptake and things seem to be under control.

Hope I am able to answer your concerns.

If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.

If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback.
