They say in is a nickel size, same cancer, same area. Two years after radiation and chemo. Went to see a surgeon he said he would feel more comfortable if I went to the Moffiitt Cancer center or Shands, a surgeon that was more experienced with a radiated lung. Of course these big cancer centers do not take my insurance. Went to see my radiologist and he thought well maybe it is a bacterial infection, after meds and a follow up PET, it is cancer. He said no surgery because too close to my aorta, I am kinda confused about this because no one ever said that to me, so maybe he was meaning the scar tissue? I am seeing the oncologist this Thursday to see what his plan is. His office called this morning stating he wanted a MRI done. I do not know why???? I guess I will find out Thursday.
I just celebrated my 1 year "cancervesary" on Aug. 24; 1 year since my diagnosis of stage IIIb inoperable adenocarcinoma! Yay me! So glad you guys are here (and I am, too)!
This is the one and only time this pic will see the light of day...me in my wig! Every time I tried to wear it, my family would talk me out of it...they swear they liked the bald look better!
Sorry this is so late, but I check in so erratically that I miss a lot! Happy, happy belated birthday! My perspective on getting older has certainly changed since my diagnosis...congratulations on one more year of life!
You are an inspiration to me.
