The CT Scan Results are in

Hi Shauna -- good news on the CT scan -- there is no spread of cancer and no new areas of cancer that could be seen by the CT scan. That area of thickening in the upper abdomen is still there but has not grown. I have pasted a copy of the full report for you below.I think it is fine for you to continue to take a break from chemotherapy until after the holidays as we discussed. Please let me know right away however if you develop any new symptoms or concerns.Happy Thanksgiving,JL

FINDINGS:CHEST: Left internal jugular Port-A-Cath position is unchanged. No supraclavicular, mediastinal, hilar, or axillary lymphadenopathy. Heart size is normal. No pleural effusions or pneumothorax. No pulmonary nodules. No acute bony abnormality. ABDOMEN: Liver, spleen, pancreas, adrenal glands, and kidneys are normal and unchanged. No pathologically enlarged retroperitoneal, abdominal, or mesenteric lymphadenopathy. Omental fat stranding along the gastrocolic mesentery/ligament is unchanged without a discrete focal nodule. PELVIS: Hysterectomy, bilateral oophorectomy, and pelvic lymph node dissection are again noted. There is no pelvic lymphadenopathy or mass. Central pelvic fat stranding/scarring is redemonstrated. Mild thickening of the urinary bladder wall is again suggested. Result Impression:: 1. Unchanged omental mesenteric fat stranding within the gastrocolic ligament compared to September 10, 2008. 2.
