'Negative' results from last PET scan

We have passed the 4-year mark for the mantle cell lymphoma diagnosis and only three months away from the 3-year anniversary of my stem cell transplant. All of my tests are normal and give me a "clean" status for which we are extremely grateful. Thanks to the periodic IVIG treatments (have had four and will have two more), the immune system seems to gradually be returning to normal, aided by the fact that I am no longer taking any immunosuppressant drugs.

Back from COH with a good report on the PET scan. Negative! One of the reasons people are generally confused about health care: We use terms that mean the opposite of what they seem. Negative, of course, means there is no sign of the cancer. Blood tests are all good and I got another IVIG treatment today (like an ...oil change), so I am good to go for another 30-45 days.
