      pet scans are not always accurate I had one 3 jan 19 and went for results on 22 jan 19 to be told that there was evidence of disease in both my appendix and bowel though very small and we would fight it aggressively
      this was after my melanoma brain met in dec 18 so he was saying it had spread
      to be honest I was nearly numb listening to him
      he booked me in for more tests and said I would need appendix removed
      heard nothing until mid march when ct scan was clear
      had bowel scopy in april which showed nothing and appendix removed in june which showed nothing
