My Doctor is out on Vacation I would ask him and the staff wont answer questions of this nature. Ialso have been reading that this test is not that great in detecting reacurrance any info would be great TIA Donna
Thank you for answering this lady's question. This is the answer I, too, was looking for. My baseline reading was 45. And, although the doctors all assured me that I was an unlikely candidate for a reoccurence of cancer due to a variety of good indicators, the reading did scare me because my oncologist, who had just done a manual exam the previous week, immediately wanted to do a Petscan. I was surprised that he wanted to do this test which I understand can have complications when all other factors seem to indicate I am doing well after 2 1/2 years past a lumpectomy and radiation. I suggested we try the test at a later date and he agreed; but, the worry was still there. So, thank you for your specific answer.
