Well the media has gone a little crazy to say the least. I now know why Dylan was one of the children chosen because they certainly needed a child who was not camera shy LOL. We have done many interviews this week for local
New focus of MIBG activity seen on the whole body scan in the right anterior flank area and lower midline pelvis, on SPECT/CT scan correspond to excreted activity in the bowel loops. Previously described multiple foci of abnormal MIBG accumulation in thoracolumbar and sacral spine, bilateral pelvis and femora appear unchanged, consistant with stable MIBG-avid disease.
Normal tracer distribution is visualized in the salivary glands, nasopharynx, myocardium, liver, bowel and urinary bladder.
Impression: Since December 2007
1. Stable MIBG-avid metastatic disease.
2. No new foci of abormal MIBG-avid tissue.
Well I guess that means stable, just that I don't like the word "New focus of MIBG activity" Sounds awful. Maybe it means the new focus is normal? I should have read the results in the consultation room to ask what it meant.
Dylan has the all clear the attempt a stem cell harvest and the GCSF will start next week in preparation for that. The Thalidamide and Celebrex prescriptions are in today for him to start as well, we just need confirmation from the team whether we start that now or after the stem cell harvest attempt.
