Getting ready to start chemo this week. Feel like I just accepted the fact that I have breast cancer. Found out today my pet scan came back with liver abnormalities (blood work was normal, though). I feel so scared!

    Michelle, I would not get too worried about it. Scans are SO sensitive they can see the tiniest of flaws in various organs that turn out to be JUST US. I also had something on one of my scans that turned out to just be a oddity of my.... whatever. The fact that you have normal liver tests speaks to your liver being healthy. They just have to get baselines. One of the techs I spoke to told me not to worry about these baselines... they are just baselines. I truly think this time where you don't have all the pieces of the puzzle is very scary. It will all level out. Just what you need to hear.... abnormalities.... arrrgh. If your doctor isn't getting jazzed about it then I wouldn't get too upset. Hang in there Michelle. Take care, Sharon

    Sorry. My numbers went back to normal and all was well. It's the organ that seems to work the hardest as the housekeeper of our body. Your doctors are being vigilant and would get all excited if they thought the worst. Take care and slap that worry down for now. :-D Jo

    Thanks for answering, Sharon. My doctor is having me follow up with an MRI of my liver. At my consultation appointment, though, she told me that none of my blood work was abnormal. I am just tired of being scared.

    Had an ultrasound done of my lymph nodes this morning ~ it came back clear! That made me feel a little better. Hopefully now my liver MRI will come back fine. Chemo starts Friday. Can't wait to get this disease out of me!

    Try not to worry about the liver. Years before the cancer my numbers were high so they biopsied my liver. Turned out I had a fatty liver. The dr referred to it as the all American liver due to our diet. My nu

      Oh JO!
      GREAT ANSWER! Livers are tough organs who don't get the credit they deserve. They are the mop-up experts of the body. Michelle is going to be OK! Take care, Sharon
