As for what a pre-operative CT scan looked at, it depends on whatever the physician ordered. If he only asked for abdominal/pelvic, that is all they look at. Now that spread to lymph nodes has been confirmed, they will likely do a whole body scan to see if it has spread elsewhere prior to beginning any further therapy (radiation, chemo).
Please let me know if you have questions.
All the best,
