    My cat (Oliver) is getting a CAT scan tomorrow

    So for those of you that don't know Oliver was diagnosed with cancer about 6 weeks ago. He had surgery and is going to start radiation treatment on Tuesday. But tomorrow he is getting a CAT scan ... too bad I could just have one of the other cats in the house scan him (It would be a lot less expensive!)

    Prayers for Oliver. If I recall correctly his surgery came back with clean margins. Hopefully the radiation will make sure nothing is lingering and that the bad guys are all gone!

    Please give him some hugs for me.

    And take care of yourself.

    YOu are right, the surgery came back with clean margins and no spread to the lymph nodes. I will be able to find out from the CAT scan if it has spread to the lungs. If it has then I will have to make a decision about the next step.

    So the CAT scans came back with no lesions in the lungs or the head, which measn the cancer hasn't spread and radiation might be effective
