Six Week Follow-Up

Today we drove to Philadelphia to meet with Dr. Chura and Dr. Heese to see how I am progressing in recovery and discuss the next steps. We discussed some of the issues I am experiencing (such as a restless ache and random stabbing pains all over, continuing ear and nausea issues, hot flashes, etc.) and conducted an exam. The good news and really the point of this post is that everything looks "very good" and the results so far suggest that the treatment was indeed successful. Key word being suggest as we do not know for sure until a PET scan is completed, but the doctors are optimistic. On October 27th we will be returning for the PET/CT scan as well as a Rheumatologist and ENT appointment. So assuming that everything goes as currently planned, we will have an official answer on whether or not treatment worked.
