A few post few post back I wrote about Finally Got MY PET Scan Test. In the post I talked about getting my veins filled with a radioactive fluid, waiting for 90 minutes for the radioactive fluid to get to my bras filled with a radioactive fluid, waiting for 90 minutes for the radioactive fluid to get to my brain and then being put in the scan machine for another 1/2 hour, Taken out and told to go home , they would let me and the Doctors know the results. Well the other afternoon they let me know. The lady from the research clinic told me that the amount of Amyloid plaque on my brain was Scant. I didn’t have enough plaque for the clinical trial and that she would put what they have on me and send it to my regular neurologist Dr, Sadia and a copy for myself. She was extremely excited and wished me well. To date I haven’t received anything, but probably will.
I don’t go back to Dr. Sadia until the end of the month So my big question now IS do I Have Alzheimer’s or not? If i don’t have any or scant amount of Amyloid protein on my brain what does that mean. I do or don’t have Alzheimer’s disease?
What I do know is that I have a Blockage in one of the arteries going to my heart. I have to talk to my GP about that and also talk to her about the two mild strokes I already had. This was all discovered be the doctors in getting ready for the clinical trials. I hope they will share all of this with my regular doctors. I hope I don’t have to go through all those tests again.
