I am seeking a second opinion desperately on the suggested diagnosis of gall bladder cancer of my father. My father was found victim of GIST in stomach last Aug. 2005. Operation was successful. However, last month, with PET scan, doctor advised possible recurrence in gallbladder. My father has heart problem found after the operation last year with cardiac catheterization report stating hypokinesia of lat. wall with ischaemia and thinning of inf. wall and septal region, EF 52%, mod. MR, LA/RA dilated.
Here is report quoted from the first part of the report for PET Scan done on 26 June 2006:
Clinical history: History of gastric GIST of fundus with wedge excision performed Aug. 2005. Post-op given Glivec 400 mg daily. Recent follow-up PET scan showed increase activity over RUQ. CT abdomen taken gallbladder wall ? recurrence. However EUS showed only suggestive of GB inflammation. No mas for FNA. Need for follow-up CT scan of abdomen to monitor change of GB / liver status.
Should I continue with the full radiological report?
I await anxiously for your kind advice before proceeding.
Many thanks in advance!!!
