I was diagnosed in Oct Stage 4 BC with mets to bones (spine, pelvis, femurs, humerus) and chest wall. I feel fine, but tumor markers keep going up C-27.29 test. Pre menopausal - Lupron, Tamoxifen and Arredia . I've only had a PET Scan and X-rays and that was in Oct. No bone density, no other tests besides blood tests. Should there be other scans? (bone, CT or ?)
When is your next PET scan schedule?
A repeat PET scan would be enough to check the status of your cancer. It should be compared to your previous scans to see if there is stable or progressive disease.
